Well its been a good few days since the last post. Whats changed!? Work. Thats what.
Fairs are kicking in and picking up on both the East Coast and in the midwest! I have been working with the awesome Jimmy V.  while Jared & Jeff have been taking on the great state of Oklahoma!

Meanwhile…no one has seen The Avengers yet. 😦

BUT, we can afford to now! Also, we can afford to be in a wee little fair called…


How did we get into this awesome fair? Well, it went a bit like this…

“Hey California, how are yea?” – Us

“Oh, I’m good…you?” – Cali

“Thanks for asking, were freaking GREAT! We heard you had some pretty big fairs…” – Us

“True that, true that…you uh, you want in one?” – Cali

“YUP!” – Us

“Alright, let me make a call or two aaaa NAAAHH just kidding! Get your ass to San Diego! You know your accepted (because you’re so awesome)!” – Cali



And thats pretty much the magic behind booking fairs. So its been an exciting week as we race to pull together the appropriate funds, but all for what will be an awesome time, and an awesome step to the west. The California Boys are finally going to California.


Cheers to that!



Now, some photos…

A good “good morning”

I started this business with a friend, of which together we had about 18 years of prior retail caricature experience. As we look ahead and work on our own operations, we try to look back at the once that we once worked for and with. Keeping in mind what worked and what did not, we strive to create the best experience for both artists and the customers even if its just a change in the chairs we use.

This is a portion of the job that I love just as much as the art itself. We’re a close group, us artist, and as we bring new ones on and meet new people, it is just fantastic to have an environment that goes beyond work and into friendships.  Even more fantastic is waking up to quotes like this on your Facebook wall…

You guys are everything I ever wanted a caricature business to be! I’m so glad I have opportunities to work with you. “…I thought it was the California Boys? That’s a girl!” Lolz. I love you all so much…! More than as artists, as people. Realest people and coolest artists I have ever met in my life. ♥ – Krystal Simmons

It’s a beautiful reminder that this is more than just a caricature company. It’s a group of great people, doing great things.
