"Nasty Habitses!"

Dang, I hate it when people are smoking outside my window in the summer.  No more fresh air for me. Here I've got Gollum (from The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit) courteously expressing my feelings. 86 hours in Photoshop.  Click below for my process.

Garbage Day

I've been mowing half of our community lawn for most of the summer.  The clippings fill our big city trash can nearly over the top.  A few weeks ago, I stayed up too late working on an art project and woke up after the trash truck had come and gone.  I figured I'd lost my chance to have an empty trash can for the week.  As I moped and prepared some lunch to take to work, Hope came calling through the back window.  I heard the garbage truck picking up the trash of the neighbors behind us!  In a split second, Crazy Matt kicked in and made me jump into a pair of untied tennis shoes, and run out the our front door.  It was kind of challenging finding the perfect balance as I sprinted with our overloaded trash can around the block.  After I rounded two corners, the truck came into view.  I ran straight down the lane on the street and barely caught the truck before it rounded another corner.  Phwew!  I didn't hit the gym that morning, but I got a workout in anyway.  And I was pretty dang excited to tell my wife the dramatic tale of her hero:)  Click to read the story behind the art.

Matt Watts Caricatures Facebook page

I've been drawing caricatures of my friends of Facebook for a few years and I've gotten a lot of positive feedback from them.  So I started my own caricatures business and Facebook page!  Now I'm doing caricatures for hire and live events.  'Like' my Facebook page to see all the latest and hire me sometime if you'd like your very own caricature!
