As you can see I have been busy in my free time between posting here and commenting on your sites by doing some random caricatures of followers. The incredible gif animation is courtesy of Dunken K. Bliths (find him on his webpage and his Google Plus profile)
Since I put the following offer out to my Google Plus followers, I wanted to do the same for my loyal commenters here.
Typically after I post a random caricature I get questions as to how much it costs to get caricature/mugging from a picture done
NOTHING Just ask to get on the list….however,
1. How often I do them is work/free time dependent, so there are no guarantees as to when/if I will ever get to you.
2. The more you engage with me and share my posts on G+ and my blog, the more I tend to favor you for a mugging (whether or not you ever asked)
3. If you get mugged and want to give me something in return (completely NOT necessary though several have been very gracious) you can either:
a. Donate to one of my favorite charities Crayons 2 Computers which helps makes sure teachers and students have the necessary supplies for school. You can donate any amount at http://www.crayons2computers.org/ in honor of Bearman Cartoons.
b. Buy something at my cafepress site http://wacksack.com
If you want to guarantee a spot in line, you can commission a caricature by sending me a request. Price will vary depending on complexity needed.
Cool, but I’m not doing Google+, so I’ll pass on this. I’ve a buddy that does these and I’ve got all the goofy looking mugs of me that I’ll ever need.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Sandee anyone who comments here can get on the list too. Not just a G+ thing.
Bearman, love the caricatures (good job on the animation too, Dunken)! Seeing all the holiday commercialism and companies taking our favorite Xmas songs and rewording them into their brand kind of ruins the holidays a bit for me. This post brought a smile to my face. Knowing how busy artists can be making money this time of the year, and that you would dismiss your caricature fees and have people donate to your favorite cause brings a bit of joy back to my season. Thanks. I’m looking forward to seeing your fan toons!
Thanks Mark. That means a lot. However, it does spoil my plan to do a Holiday sing off where people change the words of famous holiday songs and in its place sing my praises.
Some great caricatures there & Dunken did an awesome job on the animating of them.
I wish my animated gifs looked as smooth. Maybe I’ll have to go to Dunken’s class (ok there is no class but…)
Interesting idea. Definitely something to think about for Christmas.
Christmas only comes once a year but christmas sales keep on giving.
It’s like the Black or white video but better.
Now I wish I would have done Michael Jackson…er I mean DRAW MJ.
Neat morphing animation, though it is a bit creepy, too.
Be creepier with a bunch of wombats.
If by creepy you mean wondrous.
That’s pretty good, B. I like that a lot.
I’ve been trying to get my Google+ on, but my workplace has it blocked. We use Google for everything from our special email to our working calendars, to certain aspects of our official website. It won’t let me switch Google ID’s and still be locked into the “work” thing. Those vicious tykes in IT have it all covered it seems. How am I supposed to run this 7 day a week comic empire if I can’t do it at work?!!! 😀
So what you are saying is that you are trying to goof off at work. You need to offset your social media work to your son.
I’d like to get in line.
You got any pics online somewhere?
I’ll send you one once I get back home next week.
Where’s my mug?
He just grabbed the ones he wanted. I didn’t choose, otherwise your mug would have been in there.
Kim Jong Loon wasn’t good enough for him huh? Hmm, let the UN see about that 🙄
He grabbed ones off the ones I posted on G+ not the ones I posted here.
I reckon a funny picture of somebody is a gift that keeps on givin’.
Just like your outhouse pic.
I got mugged once. It was right after I visited Macy’s Department Store in 1953. 🙁
Those were KIDS santa…you were supposed to get mobbed not mugged.
I mugged a cup of cocoa once.
It’s not my fault that I made this mistake. The children in New York are intimidating. I got scared. Next time I’ll send Krampus after them.
the gif is great. it’s kinda hypnotic though. i’ve been staring at it for the last 20 minutes……….i think it’s talking to me………………….
It is….it is saying…BUY T-SHIRTS, BUY T-SHIRTS from bearman.
I think it’s moving…
Ummm…we are talking about the gif right?
Hmm, a mug for Christmas. A mug on a mug for my egg nog, even better.
You know that doesn’t rhyme…haha
I just started with google plus i will have to add you. I love the character you did for me.
Found you!!! Ok well you found me.
It’s really cool how you did the fading in and out! Thanks again!
Someone else did that for me but thanks
