What is Art For ?

Posted Sep 2011

Art is for Fun. Party Whoop-de-doo Fun.

Caricatures are not like looking into a mirror. Not like tracing a photograph and modeling the forms based on highlight/shadow the way we do for a Portrait. Not the same pretty face for everyone with different hair. A Real Caricature Artist will be making a statement on what she sees. And it has to be quick. First impression, no editing. Because we draw one person after the next. "How many faces can you draw per hour?" is frequently asked by my clients. (BTW, I recommend estimating ten faces per hour.)

A Real Caricature is an Exaggeration. Here are some Samples from a 12-year-old girl's Party:

So get drawn. Have fun. Laugh. See yourself as a Cartoon.

Rushing Through Life

Posted Nov 2009

We have so much Fun. One of the best things is watching the Reactions to my Pictures. But it's unusual that I can get it on Camera.

And it's unfortunate that I can't play it up and really give Time to the Reactions. When people hire me, they're usually so focused on 'How Many Can You Do Per Hour', that I think they not only limit My fun, but it also limits their Guests fun. "Ok - we like that one. Next!"

We live in such a fast-paced world. Running from one activity to the next. We party fast. We eat fast. We run the course of our relationships fast. Life goes by like a blur.

A blur! I guess my 'bad photography' is quite good afterall. It records the moment quite poetically.

Back to the Drawing Broad

Gotta get some photos up here right away. Too many words. I drew these at a College Event:

One of the things Artwork can do is to get our attention off the chatter in our mind.
