I Caught a Bird

Posted Nov 2008

This man sat next to me in a diner. I drew him with no predraw.. Snapped a photo afterwards to show it here.. Because it's such a good Caricature.. My associate was with me, and she laughed and laughed.. (I guess she's not as used to it as I am.)

That Aha Moment

Posted Nov 2008

Can you understand ?? This picture is okay, not the greatest, but I'm all excited with it. It's a very important piece. It marks a turning point in my development as a Caricaturist, as a real Artist who doesn't just copy the world.

It's a picture of Klaas OpDeBeek, an Artist from Belgium. The first photo shows him holding the picture that I drew. It's okay:

Then the picture was hanging around on my floor before mailing it to him. And one day, not trying, no effort, an Idea (Eureka!) came to me. Those narrow cheeks with that big noticeable mouth -- I COULD TUCK THE CHEEKS INTO A BOWL OF THE MOUTH ! I was thinking outside of the box. Hadn't seen that done anywhere else (That's the picture that I posted here on 11/15/08):

Picture 2 (above) was the big turning point. But here's another rendition where I tried a different way to portray my idea. Now I'm just fiddling around with it:

Eureka! I'm a Real Artist, a CREATOR !

Photos

Posted Nov 2008

On 11/15/08, I wrote that I would post photos of the Artists that I had just drawn. I found some of their photos here. So many wonderful pictures. My life is so full of wonder. We're living in 'the future'.

I drew Artist Scott Hamilton:

 

 

I drew Artist Brian Vasilik:

 

 

I drew Artist Mike Giblin. BTW, he referred to this picture as "a real belter"!

 

 

I drew Artist 2-handed Mikey:

 

 

I drew Artist Matt Zitman:

 

 

I drew Artist Yuri Kato:

 

 

I drew Artist Mary Thompson. And here's what she had to say about it: "I think your work is fantastic - a real inspiration. The line work is calligraphic. The coloring is delightful. Composition is dynamic. The subject is recognizable but you have taken the image way beyond. Magic! "When I teach I will be showing your work as an example of the best in caricature today." So I have to say "Thank You Mary!" Could it be that I will be written into those Archival Art History Books some day??? I have arrived!

 

 

And I drew Artist Gwenda Saunders. Here's what she said about it, Gwenda Saunders from New Zealand - "I absoluted LOVE it. Getting it put in a frame to hang on the wall!":
