Peanut Caricature Art by Steve Casino

Steve Casino calls himself the Painter of Nuts for a good reason.  This artist does peanut caricature art.  His unusual choice of canvas came about because he was “looking for something unique to work on”.    When he came across a peanut which looked like him, he experimented with a self portrait.
