Bettis & Bryce's Excellent Adventure

In this imaginative caricature, you see an exciting journey through the Jurassic era alongside father and son duo, Bettis and Bryce. This artwork was created for the boy’s birthday. It shows Bettis and Bryce riding atop a mighty T-Rex, symbolizing their thrilling expedition in the Jurassic period. Bryce's fascination with dinosaurs is evident, as he exudes a fierce and eager expression, fully embracing the thrill of the adventure, while the father isn't so sure about it. The two are holding hands, emphasizing the special bond between father and son.

Acknowledging the father's affinity for the Michigan Wolverines, I depicted Bettis seated on a Wolverines stadium pillow, a nod to his sports loyalty. This playful detail adds a personal touch, connecting his passion for the team to the adventurous spirit of their journey. In a delightful tribute to Bryce's love for the Detroit Tigers, the dinosaur proudly wears a Detroit Tigers cap atop its head. This small but significant detail serves as a playful homage to Bryce's favorite baseball team, strengthening the connection between the caricature and his interests.

The part of the title "Excellent Adventure" was inspired by “Beavis and Butthead: the Excellent Adventure”.  It's a play on words of a thing in society that everybody connects with. I think this title playfully captures the spirit of this shared father-son expedition. 

This caricature celebrates the spirit of adventure and serves as a testament to the father-and-son cherished relationship, while also capturing their individual passions in a vibrant and imaginative setting.
