Neon Colors

Posted Dec 2008

I photographed that picture that I was writing about again - the one that didn't pick up the neon-orange in my blog entry of November 20, 2008. This time I used my digital camera - something extra that I don't usually carry around with me. Still didn't pick up the brightness of the color, but at least it's orange:

Summer Catch

Posted Dec 2008

How I ended up watching this movie - Summer Catch - don't ask. But there I was......What to do? I know! I'll draw some pictures!

Actually, I did pick up one good line form this movie. I don't remember exactly how they said it, but it was something like - The reason the Indian Rain Dance worked is that they didn't stop dancing until it rained.

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 !
