Fine Art Portraits and Caylee Anthony Commemorative Sketch

The Captain draws fine art portraits too

A fine arts artist in his own right, Florida illustrator Captain Cartoon now unveils his studio portrait work.
The Captain can produce these types of portraits live or from photos. As compared to his economical color portrait caricatures, pencil portraits — of people and/or pets — start at $100 per face, and pastel portraits start at $200 per face.
The color angel pictures are available as 8 X 10 prints on canvas for $10.00 each.

Portrait Star Trek's Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock

Star Trek pencil portrait drawn in 1982
Produced as a character study in anticipation of drawing the Star Trek newspaper strip, Captain Cartoon presented a pencil portrait of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock to his "Trekkor" sister as a gift shortly after drawing it. He immediately forgot about it, not seeing it again until 2004.
BUT....a mystery persists. That's because the Captain has no real recollection of drawing this. It's well within his capability, and very similar in style. And that Enterprise looks a bit screwy. He knew he drew a precision pencil portrait study back then -- and gave it to his sister. In 2004 she brought the original art outside at a barbecue party, insiting this was the image given her 20 years earlier, and drawn by the Captain. So far as Captain cartoon is concerned, the jury is still out oin this. But it is a cool image. One main reason for this post is to get to the truth.
