Hired by companies! (Masterman's & Google)
This family cracked me up - they were making fun of each other the entire time I drew them. The matriarch - "Mom" - (red shirt) was non-stop with the wisecracks. Hilarious!
It's always fun to draw a grandfather with his grandkids. Especially when grandpa's name is "Bumpa".
Sometimes a company hires me to come in and draw the entire staff on one big board, which they later frame and hang in the lobby. It goes like this: I show up, they put me in a conference room, and one by one each employee walks in, poses for about 7 minutes, then gets back to work! (This particular drawing is of the Google staff in Cambridge, MA. I made the drawing on a thick piece of 100% rag drawing paper. I pencil in each face first, since it's a group shot. Then I ink it with an archival ink brush pen, and for color I use Prismacolor Art Sticks. Wala!)
