ISCA Japan MiniCon in Nagoya 2014

The Japanese chapter of International Society of Caricature Artists hosted the 2014 Asian Minicon in Nagoya from 11 to 14 February 2014. Four of our artists: Kamal, Ruoshi, Ramzul and Elson braved the coldest winter in years at the Central Japan International Airport Centrair. The new addition to this year event is the retail competition held in the mall which got a lot of public interest for the assembly of the world’s finest caricaturists. Asian caricature artists and some from around the world assembled in Japan to compete for the best caricaturists award in different categories from best artist, most exaggerated, very innovative technique, outstanding colouring, fastest drawing, impeccable likeness and even most sellable caricaturist in a real retail situation. The awards are for recognising excellence in caricature practice and inspire caricature art to greater heights.

Overall it was an awesome experience with lots of learning and making new friends among caricature professionals from around the world. Best of all… Next year’s ISCA Minicon will be held in Singapore 1-4th June 2015!

An Italian Motorcycle Tour Group Caricature With Ducati

A digital caricature for this wild bunch. The clients’ request:

I have attached 2 photographs: 
– a group photo of my motorcycle group;
– one photo of our friend Francesco.
Basically I would like the drawing to be fun & funny.  The main picture of the whole group to be the main background, this is a group of close friends who often travel together on motorcycle trips.  You will see the motorcycles in the background.  The picture of xxxx to be superimposed in the foreground, on the right hand bottom corner area showing his thumbs up.  xxxx is a fun-loving, friendly, smart, funny & mischievous Italian who loves motorcycling and loves good food, he is a huge guy in his early 40s with a potbelly.  
This caricature is meant as a present to xxxx when we meet him soon.  I would like it to show how the whole group enjoyed the fun we had with xxxx, and he enjoys our company albeit being rather amused with our craziness.  
I hope I have given you the descriptions which is required.  I would appreciate your advise as to the cost for the artwork & any suggestion from the artist.  As for the size of the artwork, I reckon a minimum A4 or perhaps a little bigger.  Please let me hear from you. 

Student’s Gift for Professor’s 70th Birthday

The clients’ request is for a Professor 70th Birthday:

I would like to order a coloured caricature for my professor’s 70th birthday.

In the drawing, I want to include him as well as something related to him as background.

Here are something I would like to specify:

Professor(smiling): he is teaching and holding a book called “Advanced Database Systems” which is written by him (“CZ” is his initial). 

 Moreover, instead of wearing suit, please change to a sweater and a shirt inside, as he always wears a sweater.

Bear: it is a mascot of xxx, in where he is teaching now. Please draw a bear crawling next to him.

Bell (next to the door): It is the logo of xxxx, where he used to work in. Since it is a logo, please draw as close as the one shown in the picture.

Painting (on the door): It shows two landmarks in an Italian city called Vicenza, where he’s born. The landmarks are a building called Palladian Basilica and its clock tower.

Door: It is an opened door.

 Attached please find his photos, pictures of bear, painting and bell lab logo as well for your reference.
