m&m Caricatures for Mars Chocolate at NAMA

By Robert Bauer | May 5, 2011 |

Once again Goofy Faces was on-hand at the National Automatic Merchandising Association’s annual trade show held at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago drawing m&m caricatures for Mars Chocolate, North America. For 2 consecutive days, both artists kept busy drawing m&m caricatures of attendees from all over the world. Goofy Faces even got a chance to have some fun while  Messin’ with Sasquatch!

Custom Caricature for Al Kaline

By Robert Bauer | December 20, 2009 |

Last night I had the distinct pleasure of entertaining at a private party for former Detroit Tiger, Al Kaline’s 75th birthday. I spent a few hours drawing many Tigers guests as well as the Hall-of-Famer. Prior to the event,  I took the time to prepare a personal caricature of Al to give as a gift to him at the party. Mr. Kaline is a very gracious and kind gentleman who even signed an extra copy of the caricature so I could add it to my collection.  Happy Birthday, Al!

m&m Caricatures at Sam’s Club!

By Robert Bauer | October 13, 2008 |

SDC11562 IMG_0021 IMG_0024 IMG_0027For many years now, Goofy Faces has been providing artists to draw caricatures for Mars Snackfoods, the makers of m&ms. To help them tell everyone about how customers can discover their own “inner” m&m, Mars has been sending Goofy Faces artists to various Sam’s Clubs throughout America. You may have seen them in your hometown drawing shoppers as either plain or peanut m&ms. Maybe you have one already or you might get a chance the next time you head to Sam’s Club! Just look for the m&m signs and an artist camped out near your favorite hard-shelled chocolate candy!
