Small Pictures

Posted Mar 2009

I finally figured out how very small I'd have to start my drawing in order to exaggerate consistently on the Small-Size Option. Some of the really good photos from this party came out too fuzzy. Still, I'm glad I got plenty to show:

The Bitter End

Posted Mar 2009

I'm getting so good at this Career. Drawing, Getting around...... I even thought the drive all the way down NYC was okay on the day that I took these photos. I had driven from my Caricature gig in the Bronx all the way down to the Bitter End in Soho - just to see the Arkhams. I barely noticed the NYC traffic.

The Bitter End - It's been around for a long time - Since the days of Light Shows. But how did this happen - When I tried to photograph the Arkhams with my new iphone, it still came out looking like a Light Show. Even though there wasn't a Light Show going on. And I certinaly don't have special speeds on the little iphone camera:

You would have thought that I had had enough drawing - just having worked a 3-hour party. The Arkhams energetic music managed to hold my interest. But I drifted off into just looking at some of the other bands that played that night. Here's a picture of a girl I drew:

And here's a picture of a bass that really held my interest. It was sooooo horizontal. And the strings were so noticeable:

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 !
