I was in Tokyo for an NCN mini-convention. Occasions like this is where we professional caricaturists from around the world learn from one another and compete in an healthy environment for coveted titles such as caricaturist of the year, and best caricatures in different categories. The Japanese experience is different in that there are a lot of Manga influence in their caricatures and are generally heavy on design. Nevertheless, they are excellent craftsmen. We drew intensely for two full days in between attending seminars by leading artists and then we judge each other’s work on the final day followed by a grand dinner and award ceremony. I took this opportunity to try my hands at watercolors.
I had tons of photos from Tokyo mini-con that can be viewed from these albums:
