Hi guys...here are some of my latest guitar illustrated caricatures from Cartoon Guitars.com website. As you can see, this is a little more caricatured approach and a bit simplyfied process then my illustrations until now.

I plan to draw similiar caricatures with same coloring/shading technique like my previous illustrations also. I have explained how and what I will be creating in future on www.cartoon-guitars.com so if you like, check for details on my website.

Since these simplyfied guitar caricatures works very well for t-shirt's and all sort of gifts, they are also very useful for graphic and web designers and as a logo images.

A lot of people asked me to try something like this, and I finally did.

This is just another way to express my creativity and love for guitars. Hope you will like them.

Hello again M4rio,
I've been quiet for a long while so I'm sorry not to respond to your other posts. As a bass player, I love the 4003s, particularly the Jetglo. Your latest, stylized guitars just go to prove, whether it's simplified or complex, the talent shows through. I think you have terrific ability and repeat my suggestion that you ought to approach the manufacturers.

Why not do a Stingray and send it to Sterling Ball? He's the sort of guy that would appreciate the individual approach. It's just a thought.

Thanks a lot 1bassleft. I really appreciate your comment here. Stingray is a bass guitar? What is your oppinion in what way I should draw that Stingray? As my earlier illustrations, or like this simplified caricature? I mean if I will send this guitar to him. Or I even can draw a caricature, but with coloring and shading like on my previous guitar illustrations(Rickenbacker 4003). Not shure Smile

Once again, I really appreciate your thoughts here.

Hello M4rio,

Sorry to reply slowly; dinnertime for the family. The Musicman Stingray is one of the best known basses, along with the Precision, Jazz and Rics. THe Ernie Ball company is not as corporate as Fender (and Rickenbacker seem to sue anyone who even writes the letter "R") and headed by Sterling Ball (Ernie's son).

On Youtube, there is a videoed Tour of the Ernie Ball factory, worth watching. His comments about the Ball Family Reserve (BFR) instruments made me think of them as worth sending a sample of your work to.

Thanks a lot for this informations. I will try to illustrate that Musicman Stingray and possibly send some illustrations to them. Thanks a lot for encouraging me to do this.

You're welcome, I really do think your work deserves to be seen. BFR instruments are made to customer requirements, like Fender Custom Shop. Ideally, an arrangement where your artwork accompanied the finished instrument would be a nice option, but, to begin with, you just need to get people like Sterling Ball (I wrongly spelt his name Stirling in my last post) to see your work.

Keep me updated; I'd like to help if I can.

I thought maybe the caricatures would not work with colour, but I was wrong. They work very well. I'm always impressed by your illustrations.
