Hey gang....

I have my son visiting over the holiday here, and I've been coaxing him to join Wetcanvas to be part of our community here. I have one "how-to" demo here on WC on drawing cartoons as Jason has a couple syndicated magazine cartoon strips. Here, however...as I demonstrate to Jason how to upload, register as a member, etc., we will show a couple of his caricatures.

Jason just won an international contest of a caricature of Michael Jackson, http://www.opdebeeck.com and here it is-

What is fun for me is to see how fundamental sketching has become for Jason, because...(as I'm sure he'll eventually drill into some of you!), it was not always so. Trying to get him to sketch as a teenager was really like trying to pull teeth! Here are in his words, "rough" sketches of Garth Brooks and Russell Crowe in "Gladiator"....his finished colored caricatures are incredible.

So...now that I have shown Jason how one goes about posting, he'll have to go back to Chicago and do his part in officially registering as a member and take it from there. At any rate, why not an early "welcome!" from our friends here at WC...and perhaps Jason can say a few words or answer questions from my computer here in NE Wisconsin. -Larry

IF you get a chance...check out Jason's two websites on his caricatures-

Jason,
First off, welcome to WC. You'll be an instant hit!

I'm still chuckling over the MJ caricature as I try to type. Looking forward to more of your work.

:D

thanks everyone.....
soon as Jason gets out of the shower, I'll let him know he's had a few responders. We just got back from a long drive and evening to see "Lord of the Rings"....which up here in the northwoods means about an hour's drive. Here meanwhile, is a colored caricature of Tom Cruise....special watercolor markers, colored pencils...and sometimes I know Jason uses acrylics... Oh, Jason is 24 years of age. -Larry (alias, ie, Daaaahd, or papa)

Greetings!!!

This is me Jason, just saying thanks for all the kind words....Not sure when exactly I'll join up here, seems like a great way to meet other artist, and learn a great deal from each other. I'm not complaining, but I am quite busy lately with work, burning the candle a lot lately, so I'm not sure how much time I can dedicate to the Wet Canvas crew.

Even so, I will try to join up when I get home, check in on everyone every once in a while!

Thanks again for the nice comments...by for now and take care!

Jason Seiler
