Mark Winkelmans – Caricaturist
I’ve been “doodling” for as long as I can remember. I grew up with a love for comic books, especially DC & Marvel superheroes. Batman was one of my favorite characters to draw (Biff!, Bam! Oooof! Kapow!). But my doodles never seemed to materialize into much and even though I loved to draw, I didn’t want to become a “starving artist” and so I put aside any thoughts of actually trying to make a living “doodling”.
Then came the computer age and the internet. Eventually, opportunities that once seemed unobtainable now came within reach due to access of information and guidance all just a mouse click away. For some reason (I believe now it was Divine inspiration), I got the notion in my little brain to start drawing caricatures! It was an “Aha!” moment for me and I’ve been at it ever since. I hope you enjoy browsing through the gallery and perhaps gain some inspiration of your own.”The road to happiness lies in two simple principles: Find what it is that interests you and that you can do well, and when you find it put your whole soul into it-every bit of energy and ambition and natural ability that you have”. John D. Rockefeller III.
