Caricature for Exxonmobil

Client's brief:-
"Hi Jit,

I am doing a farewell gift for our big boss who's leaving us after 3 years for another overseas assignment. Pls do a Caricature in colour marker with theme (with background and body)....

Pls do a really outstanding and nice one. Here are some of his characteristics :
- male, German, age 43, married with no kids; holding a very senior position in ExxonMobil as the Country HR Manager.

As you know, Germans are the opposite of Americans who keep to themselves very much. Even after 3 years of working closely with him, I can't really figure out his likes and dislikes. What I do know is that he likes Koh Samui very much to the extent of flying there once a month with his wife for the sun, sand, sea and beer.

Can I suggest having a beach (resort) background with coconut or palm trees; him lazing on a beach chair; in colourful Hawaii shirt drinking German beer. It must be German-brand beer and not Tiger, ABC, Tsingtao. He always read by the beach but I'll leave you to decide if you want a beer in one hand and a book in the other hand. However the Beer is a Must-Have in the caricature. I was also thinking of him in straw (sun) hat but may not be ideal as his face may not show as well in the picture. Anyway I leave you the expert to execute the best for me!

......Jit, some more ideas to help you create the whole picture in a real relaxing atmosphere at the beach :

- for the Hawaii shirt, pls have the first few buttons un-buttoned (ie. a bit of open-chest but absolutely NO body hairs)
- him crossing his legs (perhaps big toes to look funny?)
- as he comes from Hamburg, Germany, their signature beer iis "Holsten".
Pls have the bottle show this brand. You can google search to view the picture.
- otherwise another German brand is "Beck's" beer which will work just fine."

I put in the straw hat, since it will not cover his face.

Client's response:-
"Oh, it's very nice!"
