He is a motor driver who has globe trotting on a motorbike as his profession.
On a Yamaha YZF R1 he travelled round the world in 5 years and 5 months .
This motor is a race motor.
Not the first motor you think about when you want to travel the world.
But Sjaak went everywhere , Africa, Asia , South and north America.
The whole trip was 250.000 km. You can read about it in his site http://www.sjaaklucassen.nl/
(There’s an English version too.)
During this tour he wrote his travel-story for many motor magazines.
Now back home in the Netherlands he tells his story with a PowerPoint presentation to make money for his next world tour. With photo’s and video’s and a lot of humour Sjaak entertains the audience.
During this presentation I made a caricature of him.
It was my present to Sjaak to tell him he’s doing a great job and to thank him for his story.
After his presentation I found out that my Dutch colleague Thijz joined him for the last part from France to the Netherlands. He also made a caricature of Sjaak.

Because I am lately busy for fun with watercolor paint I decided to do this challenge with this technique.
The first one I wasn't completely happy with the likeness. The second the likeness is there. And the thirth carcature I made because I didn't like the very blue background color and I wanted to make on from another angle. I am happy with the results sofar. Of course now I see the things that can be done better the next time. But that's allways .... your best work is the one you haven't made yet,but will make in future.

This is the cartoon I won the prize with. Mike told us after a day work and an evening drinking about his relationship with sheep. That night I was dreaming about where that can lead to and made a cartoon of it the next morning.
Mick Hollinworth won a lot of prizes. He made some great caricatures. He told everybody that he was a coalminer and did many jobs before he became carictusist. He is my working class hero of this convention. Check his website http://www.mickscaricatures.co.uk/
The most I was impressed by the work of Emi from Japan. She made great illustrative caricatures. Every carcature she gave another atmosphere with a lot of humor. She did one of me with my hair looks like the wings of a bird of prey. Here she makes the prize winning caricature. Congratulations Emi!
