Ever wanted a caricature of yourself?

The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge
Helen and Kirk (from drama group)

Since Kevin Rye joined my local drama group some fifteen-plus years ago, he's used his artistic talents to create wonderful backdrops for our productions. He's also written and directed plays, as well as acted in them (and will appear as Sweeney Todd in our October production of 'Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street' by C. G. Bond).

I've often told Kevin his backdrops are so impressive, he should hire himself out to paint murals for people, but, alas, his answer is just a wry (Rye?) chuckle. I'll keep persevering though! (One day, Kevin, one day...)

Anyway, Kevin has now branched out into the art of caricatures, so if you're looking for a caricature of yourself or a family member or friend, then visit Rye Smile Caricatures to see what he can offer. His caricatures can also add fun to a live event, so look no further if you want a special memento of your wedding day, birthday party, corporate event or other celebrations.

To add to his many talents, Kevin also has impressive Ninja skills when it comes to catching bees (as witnessed at a recent drama rehearsal). So far, I'm still waiting to see his caricature of this awesome event!

Happy Independence Day to my American readers, btw! And Happy Wedding Anniversary to Kevin and Jill!  J
