DWIGHT & me


This is my buddy Dwight. This big mazuma stands about six foot four in his climbing shoes, but appears to be much taller. I rarely do caricatures, but Dwight has always been one of my favorite models. When producing art a few years ago for "Scooby-Doo" children's books Dwight was my right hand man, handling all production and working side-by-side with me on color rendering. He's one of the best collaborators I've ever had the pleasure to have worked with. And he's a great friend.

We met ten years ago, when Dwight was hired as a Sr. Illustrator at the WB Stores. This sketch is from the time we were located in the Dalt's Building in Burbank.

Nowadays Dwight is an Illustrator at The Disney Stores, in their Pasadena offices.

this is hilarious. I met Dwight once and of course everyone dwarfs me.

Dwight's a great guy, one of my best friends.

To celebrate him I'll be posting a few more sketches- one of them with Bjorn!

It will be a "Dwight Christmas"!

As always, big thanks for the kind comments, KimZam.
