Lonnie K - South Carolina Caricature Artists

Lonnie K

Lonnie earned a B.A. in Graphic Design from the University of Florida. After working for a few years as a Graphic Designer and Art Director, he returned to school in New York to get a B.F.A. in Illustration at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. I also took classes at School of Visual Arts. Lonnie free-lanced for 20 years in Boston and Orlando, doing a broad range of Illustration assignments that included Book Jacket Covers (including Agatha Christie books), Corporate (lots of work for Disney Imagineering and Animation), Advertising, Publishing, and Magazine work. In 1999 he accepted a job as an Editorial Artist with The Orlando Sentinel, where he did THOUSANDS of illustrations, primarily for Sports. It was while he was at the Sentinel that he was first encouraged to do Caricatures, and they are the most fun and fulfilling of all the kinds of art he does. Before going to the Sentinel, Lonnie taught Illustration and Computer Graphics at The University of Central Florida and Valencia Community College. After leaving the Sentinel, he became a Caricature Artist at Walt Disney World, primarily working at The Contemporary Hotel. After 6 years there it was decided that he and the wife would move to Charlotte to be near the grand kids. Now Lonnie enjoys doing caricatures at birthday parties, wedding receptions and corporate events in the greater Charlotte area.
