Some people have a hard time expressing their beliefs.. some are afraid to even talk about them... but from my stand-point I personally do not.

We are all part of the ultimate statistic 10 out of 10 people die. That's not a scare-tactic, it's just the truth. The appointment comes sometimes when we least expect it.

The Holy Bible claims to know the truth of what happens after we die. So either it's correct & all the others are false or it's false & therefore doesn't matter.

But if there is a 1% that it's true, there is a standard by which God measures us on. So make sure you know what that is. Make sure you have the 1 thing you need before you leave earth... Jesus. Do your research, and if you don't believe, ask God to show you the truth. Do it with an open heart - not a presuppositioned made up mind... or else He'll never show you.

God RESISTS the PROUD & gives GRACE to the HUMBLE.

I believe the bible when it says there's only one truth & many opposing falsehoods. Go make sure you are following the truth before it's too late! :-o

*Praying for all of you!*

Here are some resources and great material for all artists. Some of these sites that include: Glen Vilpuu, Chuck Jones, Frank Thomas & Ollie Johnston amongst many others are some of my favorite artists ever! Many of these guys taught over at Disney's Feature Animation back in the day.

I'd suggest you get their books and/or dvd teachings. They are pretty incredible & will give you lots of great pointers you've never taken into consideration. The rest here include a few networks and/or tutorial type websites for the growing artist. Enjoy!

These are all artist friends I've known throughout my years and fellow colleagues too. They're NOT in any particular order from best to worse or worse to best (so if you're one of these people don't get bent out of shape) I love you just the same. :)


I've learned something from every single one of these people. Some more then others... but they all exceed in some type of wonderful talent either in Animation, Caricaturing, Sculpting, Illustrating and/or making me laugh. :D


Some are close friends from the old Disney's Feature Animation crew before everyone got layed-off. :-P


Some used to work or still work with Steve Fasen Arts at Universal Studios.


Others are buddies of mine from Caricature Connection over at the Walt Disney World in Orlando.


And last - but not least, mostly all of those who are caricaturists here, have been a part of the (NCN) National Caricaturist Network Convention or still are. That's how most of us can keep in contact.


If you are a caricature artist & you've always wanted to drench yourself in a room full of nerdy artist.. go to at least one of these! It will change the way you draw (for the better!) The link is up above in the resource section of this page.


Well, I'm glad to have met all of you and I've appreciated your friendship for as long as we've known eachother... I miss you all - since I've been living here, down-under. I won't forget you! ;) Hopefully, someday I'll be hangin' with you all again.

ANATOMY A Complete Guide for Artists

by, Joseph Sheppard

Sorry for those who see this one as a bit graphic. This was my very 1st Anatomy Book. I think I drew over each drawing about a hundred times so that I could learn & memorize the human anatomy. People used to think I was studying to become a doctor or something.

Here are some Great Art Books I highly recommend that you add to your library collection at home. There are many many more in my library.. but this would end up being such a long list.. you'd fall out of your chair. So... I'm just posting SOME of my top fav's.


If you click on them.. they will link you over to the Amazon Site if you feel you'd like to purchase them online. Sometimes they will even give you a sneak preview of the book.


I own every single one of these and get to enjoy them over and over again. If you can't afford to purchase them.. I suggest you try & look for them at your local library.


Soak yourself into these books if you want to learn to draw with an ease. These show you the underline basics of all you need to learn in much of the art world. They have been a delight to me.. and still are!

So, go enjoy & learn lots!
