Troy Polamalu: The Pittsburgh Steelers caricature by Kerry G. Johnson

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.

A family’s caricature Christmas card

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.
