“The Best Man Holiday” for the second time. We usually don’t see movies twice. However, it was refreshing to watch an entertaining movie where African-Americans were not gangsters, pimps or slaves. These contemporary characters were prospering in elegant surroundings and dealing with issues affecting all of us (regardless of race). Here’s my caricature salute to director Malcolm D. Lee and the actors involved with the movie.

Here was a fun project. A tractor retailer wanted a caricature of Pittsburgh Steeler Troy Polamulu riding atop a tractor for his Super Bowl party. It was an inside joke for his family and friends. It was an interesting assignment and since I am a Steelers fan, I enjoyed the challenge.
This was a fun project to illustrate. The mom contacted me about an special idea for her 2010 family’s Christmas card.
I actually drew caricatures at her daugther’s birthday party a few years ago. So I was pleased that she was a returning customer. It was a quick turnaround. It reminded me of my theme-park days. I’m happy that I met the deadline.
November and December are always a busy and fun time for Caricatures by Kerry. Here are recent caricature projects that I illustrated for holiday gifts. Giving a customized caricature to a friend, family member or co-worker is a unique and entertaining gift. http://www.kerrykraft.com

At my daytime job as the art director for the American Physical Society, there’s a holiday decorating contest. The publications department’s created a Sesame Street theme. Over the weekend, my family came by and we shot some photos.
