Why am I spending my morning just drawing pictures of people who post their photos on the web? I don't know?

Well, it started like this. First, I wanted to practice my 3/4 views - so I looked for faces. But on the page that showed an angular man in a 3/4 view, there was a more interesting photo of a front-view man who was bubbled out with strong glasses, and.....

Okay. So now I'm going to get to sending out literature, taxes, laundry, yoga.....

It's all good.

An Unusual Bar Mitzvah

Posted Apr 2008

Imagine my surprise when I walked into a Bar Mitzvah last weekend and everybody (except me) was wearing sweats and jeans. The nightime celebrations were at a local Y - 'til midnight! The guests swam and played baseball in between eating and getting drawn.

It was a whirlwind for me. Not only because I expected it to be a dress-up occasion. But also because, surprise again, I didn't know ahead of time that they expected body/hobby. No time to 'learn my lines'.

Let's see what came out of me under those circumstances. It's so interesting to me that this is real art. That my performance is affected by circumstances and emotions. Well, surprised, didn't know what I drew until 'the morning after' (when I saw these photos), and we all had a good time:

CHATEAU BRIAND IN GARDEN CITY and GARGIUOLS IN CONEY ISLAND

Posted Apr 2008

Here are some pictures that I did 2 weeks ago, The graphics card on my camera-phone was full when I was doing this week's jobs. (St Patty's Day was a hoot! I was really on.)

I see so many people, draw so many pictures. And each one is special. Each one unique. I wish I had photos of them all, but my grahics card was full. Here's all I got for now - from parties I worked 2 weeks ago. Anybody feel like writing a poem about that for me?

13WHAM TV

Posted Mar 2008

My friend Bippy (Caricaturist from Rochester) was interviewed this morning:

www.13wham.com

When you get to the website, click on the word "Video" in the rectangle near the top of the page. Then do Control F(ind), type in the word Caricature, and you can see it.

He has a way of making me feel good about what I do. While being acknowledged for the Flattering Caricatures he draws, he mentioned Kruger's Wild Caricatures. Mine are somewhere in the middle - between Bippy's and Kruger's. By seeing those 2 successful extremes juxtaposed with each other, it's clear that there isn't only one 'right way' to do this.

And here's some pictures that I drew of the Artist Bippy:
