Oh man, so I have more Stampede photos to show you, but my camera died in the middle of Superdogs, so I have to let it charge! Anyhow, we were wandering around the shopping portion of the Stampede last night, and we saw this booth that said, “YOUR CARICATURE IN FIVE MINUTES!”
People were humming and hawwing about whether they should do it and Steve just dove right in like a sneaky dude and said, “LET’S DO THIS!”
So this girl, Mei Yu will draw you into any scene you’d like (she has a book full of them), and as many people as you’d like. Obviously my comic book loving man should be drawn as Superman, and I as the leading lady. You sit and watch yourself being drawn on a camera as well, so as you’re staring ahead, you watch yourself come to life in cartoon form. SO AWESOME.
They even laminate the drawing so it stays free of stains or age spots! This is pretty much going in the living room in our new apartment.
Also, she does ANIMAL caricatures. I don’t think it gets any better than that. I mean, she lives in Burnaby, BC, so it’s destined for Winston and Zelda to have a caricature done as well.
