My Own Real-Life Betty Boop

Posted Oct 2007

Still Caricaturing other Artists. It intrigues me - If I respect their Caricatures, I like to see if they respect my Caricatures. I look forward to times when I'm hanging out with other Artists.

I was particularly pleased with this little 'Betty Boop' that I designed for Artist Liesbeth Beckers:

And here's Ed Steckly:

This Artist's name is Erik:

And this one is Share Farber (lol - I'm not a professional photographer):

Artists

Posted Oct 2007

Still posting pictures I've made of other Artists. I love spending my free time with other artists.

Today I spent time with my friend Elgin today. But I didn't draw him today. Instead, he taught me about teeth - drawing them individually. And he got me thinking 3-dimensionally about face-play. And we started a new drawing game.

The game was that we took out an old speed scribble, meaning quick notes of a person done in less than a minute. Then, without looking at each other's paper, we each drew up the face that we thought was described with that scribble. It was fun to see that it usually looked like we were drawing the same person as each other - but at different moments in that person's existence. Like taking photos every second - flashflashflash.

Still, I do have plenty of pictures here of other artists that I previously drew. And when I got back to my Studio, I made an acrylic Caricature of Elgin too.

Here's the artist Steve Hartley. I drew this one in 4 minutes:

And here's artist Caroline Holroyd:

And one more that I'll post today. Mike Hasson:

Here's the full painting I made of Elgin. That was fun:

AT&T

Posted Oct 2007

I think my hobby must be calling places to fix my technology. Because I've been spending a lot of time doing that. Today it was the cellphone. Taking to people all over the country. Maybe even all over the world.

I own an LG400 phone from AT&T. That's the thing I've been taking those crummy pictures with. Well, I currently have 149 pictures on it - but I have been totally unable to send them to my computer to see if any of them are useable. (Really hoping - I photographed some good pictures that I made.)

Anyway, can't email them to myself. Can't use a wire and software to put it directly onto my computer. The best 'help' I could find would involve deleting all 149 pictures. Oh Woe.

Anyway, while I was on the phone (you know how long that could be), I drew the following pictures from photos. At least I'm happy with that! Been working on the 3/4-view, and I think I'm getting better at the 3/4-view noses.

*Note: There is still hope of seeing those cell-phone pictures. They said that a Supervisor will call me tomorrow. We never know what the future might bring. Let's hope it will be real good.
