Spring Festival

Posted 5 days ago

Invited back to this College again. For their Spring Festival.

I took some photos of the Caricatures that I drew. I also managed to snap some photos of people's reactions to their Caricatures. Unfortunately, though, they had set up up under a Blue Tent. Unfortunate? Well, no not really. Not for me or the Students. We were gratefully comfortable. Thank You. But it was unfortunate for the Photos. I tried to 'Adjust Brightness' before posting them here, but I can still see some of the Blue Blueness that was caused by the lighting conditions under the Blue Tent.

Because

Posted 6 days ago

I drew a Group Caricature. Of a photo that I found on the Web. On a thin little 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Computer Paper. Just Because. Because I don't want to get up. That happens to me

Chocolate and Caricatures

Posted 6 days ago

I'm wondering...... I'm wondering if perhaps we keep repeating the same expressions/feelings...... Like..... Joy is joy, and Fear is fear. Because I see this girl's responses to two different Caricatures that I drew of her. Looks like she was having fun, looks like she was feeling surprised. And I see the exact same expressions on her Both Times.

I've often wondered why I have to eat a chocolate brownie Again. Like ~ I already learned the flavour the first time I ate one when I was 5 years old ~ so why would I need another one when I knew the answer already. And this girl's reactions to my Caricatures show me that she already enjoyed the first one ~ so how could it still be a surprise for the 2nd one..... Yet it Is. Every time we eat a chocolate brownie, we say "Yummm". And every time we see a good interpretation of ourselves, we feel thrilled. Again. And we Enjoy the exact same expressions/movements. It's what we like to do.

Again. And again. Over and over.
