It's a Caricature World

Posted Mar 2013

Got to my event early. Took a walk. I like to do that ~ my work brings me to all different neighborhoods. Keeps the walks interesting.

Whoa ~ Look at That! Looks like the house-and-car have already been Caricatured. It's the extreme contrast of sizes. But this is a real photo. There really was this litl car parked at this Big House:

This is Real also

Posted Oct 2012

I felt inspired to develop yesterday's post a bit more. I liked the experience of drawing with a pattern. Of eyes, nose, mouth. I had thought that it would be ridiculously easy to draw a Basic Plain Face. As unartistic as washing dishes. But it turned out that it wasn't boring at all. This is surely Caricature. Just as much as the ones I usually draw.

My usual style involves being overwhelmed by some aspect(s) of the person, then using That to guide my drawing. So I don't have anything I can count on. Each face is a unique experience..... I don't know what I will be doing any more than my audience knows. I am letting them see me ' naked ' (poetically speaking).

This new approach that I embraced today is first based on a traditional approach to Portraiture. After predrawing the basic 'oval' with the standard cross-lines indicating proportions, I went to 'fill in the blanks' of eyes, nose, mouth. And I was pleasantly Wowed. Because the only way to 'fill in the blanks' well was to feel the Caricature. Still. Just like what I do when I do my Fun Party Style.

This quieter style is still Very Much Real Art. But it looks different, and it feels different. My usual style feels like I'm running a marathon with my eyes. This quieter style feels like I'm deep into meditation.
