Goofin’ on the Ghost Hunters Part 2 (Re-Post)

January 30, 2010

Here’s the finished black & white caricatures of the TAPS guys, and the color of 4 of them (couldn’t figure out how to figure Kris in for some reason – sorry Kris! ) spouting off trademark expressions and some funny exchanges from the ‘Ghost Hunters” show , as well as photos of the team with their pics, and of the event they were raffled off at – a fundraiser for Tourette’s in Westfield, NJ, arranged by Bruce Tango, Big Poppa to TAPS member Dave Tango. Bruce is an awesomely sweet and generous guy (and fellow New Jersey native! Okay, I’m in Philly now, but still spend lots of time there…) and went above and beyond to make Jill and I comfortable and welcome at his event, allowing us to hang with the guys and share my doodles with them (which they signed for the raffle), and for Jill to treat them to her famous chocolate chip cookies. Unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to print additional copies for the team, but promised them I’d have finished, color versions for them at the next event! (or send them copies, whichever came first…)

This is the original, painted (background) version, which I scanned in piece by piece into Photoshop, and then messed around with for the final version above – I still really like how it came out, there were just too many things I wanted to fix, and, well, Photoshop presents that opportunity all too easily, now doesn’t it?

…Me with Mr. Bruce Tango himself – who made this all possible. I am forever indebted this man’s warm-hearted kindness and generosity – THANKS AGAIN BRUCE!!!
See the next post for the stunning climax of the TAPS/Caricatoonz saga…or is it just the beginning…
