A caricature project for a gentleman who celebrated his retirement. I also had the opportunity to design a “pop-up” retirement party invitation. Check out the car, he used to drive one of those mini energy-efficient “Smart” cars.
My wife and I recently saw
“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.
I enjoyed illustrating caricatures at the reception for Kids Are Heroes

I met some funny and energetic kids while signing books and illustrating caricatures at the Annual African-American Read-In program at Laurel Woods Elementary School in Laurel, MD.
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
I recently had the pleasure to illustrate the main caricature for Sully’s Comedy Club located in Parkville, MD. The popular club was celebrating a grand re-opening.
