Posted Aug 2007

I had a couple of pictures here on the desk for a few days. They're old pictures, but I was planning on posting them - just so the blog would open with Caricatures again. Finally got up to it:

Calligraphy

Yesterday I did Street Caricatures in NYC. You end up meeting people from all over the world when you do that. My pictures go to Israel, Australia, Germany, Italy, England, Korea, Japan, France, Ireland, Switzerland......

Here are the 2 pictures he drew out for me. I understand that he was taken by surprise - hadn't done this sort of thing for a long time, and here he was, asked to perform Now.

Pretty good. So later, waiting for the train, I tried my hand at his style. Here's what I came up with:

And then, then I exaggerated the picture I had drawn in Starbucks - even more:

When I tried to neaten it up, though, I lost something:

So I went back to the first 'musical instrument' and I brought more attention to the lips. Thinking I should darken it elsewhere, now. But I just gotta get some Sleep ~

Starbucks

Went to Starbucks today. Drew a plain likeness of a girl there:

When I got home, I tried to exaggerate it more:

Exaggerated again. I think I took it too far?
