Art on Whidbey

Whidbey Island is a pretty place that inspires artists who visit or live here. One gathering spot for local artists is The Pacific Northwest Art School, formerly known as the Coupeville Art Center, where I used to work. They held their annual volunteer dinner a couple weeks ago. There were lots of familiar faces, good food, and Artists in Action. One of the Artists in Action was Cartoonist and caricature artist Milt Priggee.

In the course of about two hours he enthusiastically drew about two dozen caricatures. He seemed to capture the essence of the person quickly and with only a few marks. Do you recognize the one below? I am going to use it on my blog and web site.
Check out Milt's web site You will have fun wondering through all the cartoons he has posted there from many years of work.
