Have you ever met an obscure Legend?

I have.

In fact, Gary Fasen was the man who taught me how to airbrush.

This is where I came from

I learned this trade, over ten years ago, within the trenches of a theme park caricature booth, Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, just outside Chicago.

I made this video six years ago, a labor of love and gratitude, for my great mentor and friend, Gary Fasen. In it, you'll see several of my colleagues and brethren speak about the man who changed all of our lives.

If you have 30 mins, please take a moment to meet the man that thousands of caricature artists owe a tremendous gratitude. I know I wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for him. Still not sure if that's a good or bad thing ;P

Please share this video with those who love biographical documentaries

If I tagged you in this post, it's because it's something I thought you'd be interested in.

Donald Trump’s proposed golf course…Tycoon Donald Trump at the house in Tong, on the Isle of Lewis, where his mother was brought up before she emigrated to the United States. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Monday June 09, 2008. The property tycoon has flown to his mother’s former Scottish island home as he prepares to outline the case for his proposed golf resort at a public inquiry. The plans – which were refused by Aberdeenshire councillors – include hundreds of holiday homes, a hotel, golf villas and private houses on the site near Balmedie. The public local inquiry is expected to last three weeks at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre. See PA story ENVIRONMENT Trump. Photo credit should read: Andrew Milligan/PA Wire
