Caricature Months

   The BEAR months have started (SeptemBER, OctoBER, NovenBER and DecemBER) and it is the busiest quarter for my caricature stints. Starting this weekend at the "Our Lady of Guadalupe Church" in La Habra, I am booked solid. A tent will be prepared for me (now that's intimidating) as they expect throngs of people to line up. This should be easy, right? NO!! I have to confess that I am a tad bit nervous. They estimate 8,000 people will be at the fair. Last year I was there from 10 am to dusk. The only reason I stopped was because there was no more daylight and I have yet to learn to see in the dark.

   I'm concerned that it will get too bright and the reflecting light will blind me. My hands could cramp up and I lose control of my brush. I'm fearful that I may not capture their likeness.

   What I do is really entertainment. Even as I focus on a face, I can hear the comments, I can hear the laughter. I know if they are having a good time. It's an adrenalin booster for sure.

   Many have asked why I got into this business. Actually, this is NOT a business. I do this mostly for charity --- for non-profits. In fact, my favorite subjects are poor people who could not afford having a caricature done.

   If you've got a talent, I encourage you to share it. Magic happens when you do that. Sometimes I surprise myself. The reward isn't in the money, it's in the satisfaction that you touched somebody's soul and made them happy. Isn't that the best motivation ever? TGIF people!

Videos of the week:

Shake your Booty Puppy
Rillea of Newport Beach, CA

Cute hip puppy

Nothing need to be said about this video. It will just bring a smile. Trust me.

Shimon Peres: Retired
Norm the Arcadia Accountant


This week we say goodbye to a respected statesman. What I didn't know was that he had a great sense of humor. Despite the stress of having to make decisions that had worldwide implications, he still had time for fun. Regardless of where you stand in his politics, he lived what he believed. Admirable!

When Your Doorbell Rings
Scott of Deerfield, New Hampshire
WARNING: Some strong language


From "Happy to See you!" to "Don't tell them I'm home." Funny standup comparison comedy.

Supersonic Plane: London to New York in 11 Min.
Scott of Deerfield, New Hampshire

Supersonic Plane

This is incredible sci-Fi stuff.

Compassion for a Dog
Art of Sierra Madre, CA

Dog Reject

The first part of the video is hard to look. You can almost feel the pain this dog is going through. It's even hard to watch the man pick the dog up because you fear for contamination. But stick with the video and you will see what compassion can do.

The Dumbing Down of America
Art of Sierra Madre, CA

George Carlin

Leave it to the politicians and heads of the education system to come up with novel ideas that really don't work. A failed experiment as the expense of our young students. Sad.

George Carlin's Strange America
Norm the Arcadia Accountant

George Carlin

Common sense is not an American trait anymore ... come to think of it, it's been a long time since American legislation had common sense. Oh well ... the sun will come up tomorrow ... it better!

TGIF people!
