What do people do when they go to Disneyland?.....Why get a caricature done of course!
How more special for Curt to have his done by the one and only Mickey Mouse! Whoo Hoo! He is on cloud nine! …..You see today we are going to Disneyland. As I was walking down the entry I happened to see Mickey Mouse admiring his latest caricature he had hung on one of the brick buildings.
All of a sudden I realized it was of my favorite cow, Curt! AND he looks pretty good I might add. Reminds me of a caricature DH and I had done in Mexico last year. It was horrible to say the least. Even strangers who saw it commented on how bad it was. Maybe next time we should have Mickey Mouse do it, after all Curt has connections now. hehe….my card….
You know one of the hardest parts on this card today was figuring out how to spell “caricature”. When Googled, it came up character, but I knew that just couldn’t be right. So after much searching I finally got the correct spelling, at least I hope I did. hehe
Coloring was done with Bic markers and prisma pencils, and chalk pastels. Used a scor pal for the wall. Made a pink and gold frame to fit in with the Disneyland theme.
Well, off to the grocery store I go. Have a great Tuesday all!.....TFL :0)

Curt looks adorable sporting a Mickey Mouse hat! Who would have known he'd end up at Disneyland and even got to meet MM in person! And Mickey looks rather happy with the results, so everyone's a winner~

Cathy, you have taken us on a wonderful journey! I love Curt Mickey style! Mic...key...MOUSE! Funny you mention the caricature, mine is from Waikiki, and thank goodness it was pretty good! All this Mickey stuff, has me telling the DH I want to go after he retires next year. Your attention to detail is remarkable, you know, the weed in the sidewalk!
