Glenn F - Florida Caricature Artists
Glenn comes from Fort Worth, TX, where he didn't grow up as a chicken farmer or cattle rancher, but rather as a humble artist drawing his way through hi prepubescent years, frequently winning awards and recognition for his artistic skills. He attended the University of North Texas on a small scholarship, majoring in painting and drawing specifically, and was on the Dean's list for the first two years. At the age of 21, Glenn joined up with the wonderful and talented crew at Fasen Arts, a caricature art company subcontracting artists throughout many hotel and theme park venues around the country. He started out in Six Flags over Texas, under the careful direction of Chris Galvin where many of his initial influences still flourish in his work today. After a couple of years he expanded his horizons to Las Vegas to continue to work with Fasen Arts in many of the hotel locations they have spread throughout the city, where his skills and talents grew and were influenced even more by many of the artists in the field.
After a year and a half or so more of learning about the art of caricature and it's hand in hand correlation with tourism, Glenn realized that he should move his home to Orlando, FL, the largest tourist destination of the United States, where the base operation of Fasen Arts is located. He planted his feet in Universal Studios Florida, which has to this day been the best move of his life.
It was here that Glenn continued to work as hard as he could to improve his skills, improve his dedication to hard work, and to improve his life as an artist. After three or four years in Orlando, he was assigned to be manager of caricature operations in Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Glenn continues to work with the owners Steve and Tony Fasen and a crew of about 15 to 20 artists today on a daily basis, drawing 6 days a week
Over the past few years he has stretched to expand his caricature skills to more illustrative and fine work, and in 2002 Glenn joined the National Caricature Network. At the first NCN convention he received four awards for his work. Glenn plans on continuing his work with Fasen Artist and the NCN, expanding his talents and exploring new mediums. At the ripe old age of 30, he plans on showing more of his work to eventually lead to publication and freelance work.
