Daryl Dixon caricature

I finally got around to watching The Walking Dead, nothing like the captive audience of a nonstop flight from Sydney to L.A.

During my first long haul flight and international trip I had to figure out a way to keep myself entertained so I ended up watching the entire 2nd season of The Walking Dead, an awesome show with a self explanatory title. As I tried to make myself as comfortable as possible (being a little over 6  foot is not easy) I settled into a compelling show about what best to do during a zombie apocalypse (turns out arguing and splitting up is never a great option) and one character stood out for me, being motorcycle riding, crossbow toting redneck survivalist Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus.

ISCA Con 2013

My wall space at the con, my competition number 129.
Not only was it my first convention purely for caricatures, but it marked my first international trip. I figured if I was gonna go anywhere, it'd be someplace where I'd be able to get some work done too :)
Held at the Tradewinds Island Resort, I had an awesome time, made some friends and learnt a whole lot about the trade, the craft and the competition, plus some pretty invaluable tips about long haul flights too.

The view of the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico from the window of the suite.

Though this was entered as a wall piece it wasn't in the competition- I just drew it for me.
