San Pedro residents and visitors now have the rare opportunity to have a personalized caricature illustrated by renowned artist Bill Yim. Yim, who hails from Hong Kong, has sketched his way around the globe and will be entertaining guests at the Rendezvous Restaurant and Winery until December14th.

The San Pedro Sun had the pleasure of meeting Yim when we attended their weekly Sunday beach BBQ last week. Yim, who is an animated character with a fu-manchu moustache, one dangling earring and a mischievous twinkle in his eye, interacts with the crowd with his witty sense of humour and confounding magic tricks. With the quick turn of his hand he can change simple pieces of paper into dollar bills, turn one length of string into two and back again, or surprise you with other tricks he has up his sleeve. Of course this is just a prelude to the fun to be had when he sits you down to draw your caricature.
