All one Lewisburg artist needs is a Magic Marker, and three minutes to capture the details in his subject's face that makes them who they are.
Thousands of people have sat across from Tracy Latham for a caricature. The creations aren't portraits. Instead, they're closer to slightly exaggerated cartoons. While it's nothing fancy, it sure is a lot of fun.
Latham is a magician with the marker, giving the person's face life on his canvas, and he said there is one critical key to his work.
"To find that little thing that makes it look like them," he said.
He has found it for years, satisfying customers with his caricatures at birthday parties, amusement parks and street fairs. Most folks don't want to sit for him, but once they give in, they walk away smiling with a Latham original.
He said 99 percent of the time, they love it.
"I've had someone tear one up right in front of me," Latham said. "You can't win them all, but I win most of them."
