JFK 50 years Later

John F. Kennedy Digital Sketch

Today is the 50th anniversary of JFK’s inauguration and in honor of the event I did a quick sketch of the former US president.

This was done on a Wacom Tablet with Manga Studio 4 Debut. It’s just a quickie warm-up sketch. I hope to do more of these more often and post them here, on my Deviant Art page, and my Facebook page.

The Dark Side of Librarians

Just a heads up, here… I am now posting older artwork on DeviantArt.com. My account name is Leuszler, of course. Today’s post is a Star Wars-oriented piece commissioned by employees of the Lorain Public Library.  It celebrates one of it’s librarians being promoted to management by going over to the “dark side”.

Lowest Commission Price of the Year

I am having a sale today and tomorrow at my Bonanzle booth on caricature commissions from your photos. Normally, I sell these commissions for 50 bucks, but today and tomorrow, you can get them for 15 dollars plus whatever extras you would like to add. Just read the sale description to find out more.


Holiday shopping season is coming up soon. Why not get a head start on it and save some money?

eBay Bargain for My Customers

Hey, all. I just wanted to remind you that I do the occassional ebay listing for an original caricature commission drawing, from your photos, on America’s Marketplace, ebay.

Here is the listing for this week: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190443900712#ht_1212wt_1137

The buy it now price is 25.00, which is half of what I normally ask for for this item. If you want to get ahead of the holiday crush, this is the place to go for a great gift that is very difficult to regift.

Two New Sketches

I fully intended to have these ready for Easter, but medical problems botched that. Here are both pictures in the inked stage. You’ll probably see the finished version of these next year.

One of the things I’d like to do here on the site is post some of the sketches and warm up pieces I do. Here’s the first.
