How I started.

I would often go hang out at coffee shops, lunchrooms, places where you can sit and ponder, think about stuff... Because, animation can become quite stressful.

So, if I was not alone, then it was often a few of us... All of us sitting, and we would point out differences and similarities: a small nose here, a mustache there, a big forehead there... things that are fun to look at. And so -- here I was, way back in 2008... another longing hopeful artist opening up to the world!

However, I really started drawing traditional portraits. Late nights, staying up, accurately detailing faces from magazine photographs and newspapers.
I mean, an artist is an artist, you know. But that was part of my youth... well, that was part of ME...

See, I actually started drawing when I was 7... a natural habit I hear! And well, "practice makes perfect"! Although, I never thought anything I did was perfect. Something was just-- always missing. Another perfectionist habit. Even though, I still get excited like a child, whenever there's a chance to travel and draw!

It was in 2010 when I worked at Canada's Wonderland. And that was really what started this as a viable career path... And so,
after I got the experience I needed from doing all those live demonstrations - In 2012, I ventured into this art style on my own.

Now I have a company. And having the privilege to train others how to do this gives me real joy!

This is the art form known as caricatures...
It's a bit hard for some people to pronounce, and it has quite a long political history I hear!

My name is Andre (aka Dre - as in Dr. Dre, Andre the giant, you name it!) - and welcome to my gigs page. I look forward!
