Art - a struggle? Why? It can be fun.

I simplified how to draw hats. Voila! I'm happy. When you know the answers, it's no more struggle:

So tonight I tested it out. I drew the following hats that I found by surfing the web:

I'm just tired of looking at the same first msge here. So I'm posting something that I quickly drew in my car today. It was based on the woman who was in the car behind me. I like how I got her very dark eyelashes.

Grafitti

Posted Feb 2008

Yesterday I was driving through Canarsie on my way to Park Slope. Took a break next to a vacant lot that had this wall around it. I was inspired by the real graffiti there:

I tried to make sense out of it - Just what did this kid do? I decided that he squashed the drunken-styled letters together, and added 'graffiti-stuff'. I wish I had some photos of the big graffiti productions here to show you. I tried to turn this graffiti study into a production-type image:

Good - especially the Wesley one. But it was too tedious to help me represent this attitude (when appropriate) at Caricature Parties. So I went back to the original reference, copied it, and tried to apply That:

Maybe I'm just making up stories, but I wonder if Grafitti might be 'ghetto'-art. Crowded conditions, not enough supplies so they had to squash their letters together on the paper....

It worked! Yesterday's studying worked!

Here are some photos from last night. I applied yesterday's studying - the couples were done with the amorphic shape principle. I also like the dark outline that I used to bring the two people together as 'one' shape:

We can compare them with some other pictures that I created recently - just about a week ago. I like these pictures too, but I prefer the new stuff that I did with amorphic shapes for couples. Here are last the pictures that I made before yesterday's studying:
