Sometimes it is nice to just sit in a public space and draw cartoons of people as they come up to you. I don’t charge any money for the caricatures. It is payment enough to see how happy people become when they see their caricatures. Whether they are young or old it is means so much to them and I loved to see the gleam of joy in their eyes when I hand them their caricature. It is also good practice for me. There are no characters that I could use in a story or cartoon that can be so convincing as those I base on real-life individuals. The world is teeming with personalities that deserve to be recorded and celebrated.
