Liquify

Posted Nov 2011

Oh boy ~ I really gotta get into Digital Caricatures. Here's a picture, originally drawn at a Party, which I scanned into PhotoShop and played with the Liquify button. I can imagine spending hours (weeks? years?) just liquifying everything if I was a kid. This is fun.

I recently put the Art Studio app onto my iphone. At least that's a step towards drawing digitally at Parties. If I like it, ummmm, perhaps I'll get an ipad. And then. And then..

Street Art

Posted Sep 2011

Culling through the photos photos photos that I take here. And I came upon these. Why did I take these?

I remember. Driving along Manhattan. What life is like from a city perspective.

I thought how much excellent Artwork there is all around us. How they had an Artist working at this store - creating This for us - while some people think they have to go to a museum or gallery to find Real art.

This is it. This is an Artist's statement. Whether it be a Caricature Artist or a 'Real' Artist or someone who makes Storefront Displays, if the Artist is making a Statement, creating something to express her interpretation, her response to what s/he sees (visual artist), then it is Art.

Want to be a Connoisseur of the Arts? Then you have to learn how to see. How to understand what a Real Artist is Doing.

I felt that this Artist was making a Statement about people's separate hearts yearning for each other - something like that. It's hard to put it into words because it needed a picture. It needed This display. I couldn't just go right by without hearing the Artist's lonely(?) voice.

Interpretation

Posted Aug 2011

Line-work. Interpretation.

I was warming-up in the car before going in to a gig. Drew the following two pictures based on the same photo. Intrigued me that the same picture, which could be described as:

wide close-set eyes big long nose long chin prominent cheeks long eye-lashes

could each look so different.

I hope I remember this when I look at MySelf in the mirror.
