Body Shape

Posted Jan 2008

Why is it that sometimes we can do things so well, yet other times we can't do that very same thing?

Why is it that sometimes when we do things real well, we can't recognize it. And we think it's no good.

You know I've been struggling lately with my tentative efforts towards solidifying the form of the human body. Yet here's one of my pictures that I found while cleaning up my end-table (Apparently I haven't cleaned that for several years).

Such graceful form. I'm posting it here so I'll remember it and be inspired by it:

In My Car

Posted Jan 2008

So busy. Worked on a Studio Caricature all week. Caricature gig on Friday. Face Painting gig on Saturday, and another Face Painting gig today. My house is falling apart. It's tax season. And I think I've discovered the answers to life - if only I had time to work on them.

But what I did do is listen to the Arkhams new cd on my way home from tonight's gig. It was really soothing because a friend disappointed me. I loved it all so much that I blasted the volume for the last 20 minutes of my ride. Whoops. It was fun, but now I need some

silence.

Glad the house was quiet when I got home. Came up here and recaricatured one of the most recent pictures that I drew here:

            

And how about this one:

Chemistry Teacher

Posted Jan 2008

My Studio Clients usually have lots of ideas about all sorts of details they want in the Picture. So instead of doing a lot of facial exaggerations, I end up working like an illustrator - putting together all those things to tell a story. Here's one I recently did for a woman who just got her first job as a Chemistry Teacher in a High School:
