Heres a real selfie! writes Joel Kweskin of Caricatures by Joel, seen here in his home studio.
Im a professional caricature artist who works both live and from photos. My gigs have taken me to weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate events, community festivals, birthday parties, family reunions, anniversaries, retirements and through the realms of marketing and social media.
As I like to say about this fun art form, From the boardwalk to the board room ... and happy occasions in between.
Were sending Kweskin a $10 gift card to Brixx Pizza. Send us your selfie and you can win a gift card, too. Use your mobile device to take candid photos of yourselves at work in your business, showing off what you do in your environment. You can ask someone to take photos of you at work, too, but we dont want professional shots. Were looking for candids that capture the selfie spirit.
