Iraqi Caricature Artist Charms South Florida!
Salim Alrubaye recently showed off his caricature skills at a restaurant in Boynton Beach. His subject? None other than South Florida's Captain Cartoon, also a caricaturist.
South Florida's caricature artist circle grew a bit bigger this month when cartoonist Salim Alrubaye entered the fray!
Salim hails from Iraq, working as a cartoonist around the world — at one point producing cartoon animations for Egyptian television.
After showing his stuff at a Duffy's restaurant, he appeared at the German-American Club's Christmas Celebration drawing caricatures in black and white — and full color.
Salim's uniquely stylized caricature style drew a crowd at a 50th wedding anniversary celebration this week, and Salim's gearing up for more fun times.
He hasn't launched a website featuring his creative caricatures yet, however Salim can be found — and friended — on Facebook.
"Salim's genuinely talented and a nice guy," says fellow caricaturist Captain Cartoon. If you want to book Salim for your party or special event, contact us and we'll put you in touch.
