“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.

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.

I truly appreciate the recent write-up that was featured in the New Pittsburgh Courier. I illustrated cartoons for that historic newspaper while I lived in Pittsburgh! To bad I didn’t win, perhaps next year….
