I traveled down to Georgia to meet up with some super fun caricature pals at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon. The show ended and we sat around and did what we do best; tell customer stories, drink, and eat. Join Tim Reed, Rob Little, Mary Kay Williams, Jeff Arce, John Smith and I as we relive some ridiculous interactions and also talk about nerdy stuff.
This week, Kirby Rudolph, Chris Chua and I brave the elements and smells of “nature” to talk about retail stand locations in fairs that have been less than favorable to us trying to do our business. And then it rained.
Jeremy Townsend, aka Jert, sat down with me to talk about his move from retail caricatures into his illustration career and the impact that his time in caricatures has had on that. We also find out what the #mostleastfunniest things are and Jert answers this weeks hashtag, #whatsinmybeard.

Tom Faraci pays me a short visit on his way to interview myself and a few other caricature artists for his documentary “American Caricatures”. We chatted a bit about his project before getting into a huge disagreement about retail caricature prices. Our friendship is still up in the air. Maybe ice-cream can fix it.
Krystal Simmons and Amanda Hackert join me to talk about Lady Problems. Not those kinds of Lady Problems, but the kind that involve uncomfortable conversations with strangers and unwanted attention while working at the fairs.
