Last year I drew caricatures at the Lakeville Home Expo at my friend Juston Olson’s booth for his business Vantage Window Cleaning. The caricatures were a hit, in fact there was a huge traffic jam at our location. This was my first time drawing at a trade show, and I am somewhat surprised I don’t get these requests more often. The majority of people I drew were kids, and in the 4-5 minutes it took to draw them, Justin was able to chat with their parents and pitch his business. Also, since I put each drawing into a protective plastic bag, I was able to slip a Vantage flyer and some business cards in with each drawing.
Much to my surprise, a photo of me drawing showed up on the cover of the Lakeville paper this March:
