Playtime

Posted Mar 2018

I had Company at the house today. I Enjoyed sharing my Drawing Time with my Friend. But it felt more like the way I already Know what I'm doing when I'm at a Party than it felt like my Self-Development Drawing Time ~ which is what I set out to do each day.

We just did the No-predraw, No-fuss Drawings that I did here a couple of days ago. Now I wish I let my Friend lead instead ~ so I could experienced something that wasn't already in my own head.

Breaking Free !

Posted Mar 2018

Tonight, I took some time off for my own Personal Drawing Time. I used a Photo from my previous post as a Reference ~ http://caricatureexpress.com/connecting

I drew freely. No predraw. No preplan. It felt aaaaahhh good.

I feel like I am breaking out of the Self-Imposed Prison that I create every once in a while with the intention of improving my Artwork. This is the real thing.

I was Interviewed!

Posted Mar 2018

How and when did you get introduced to the wonderful world of caricature? Back when I started my career as a CARICATURE ARTIST ~ before Y2K if you know what I mean ~ I had no connections to other CARICATURISTS. I tried networking when I would find a CARICATURIST at a Street Fair, but not much came of it. A few Artist friends, yes, but no one even told me that it was called CARICATURE. I coined the term CARTOONICATURE, and I went out there with my PORTRAIT skills. Lol ~ actually holding my thumb up to measure sizes and angles while drawing CARICATURES at Parties.

If you could make 3 wishes come true what would they be? I wish that people didn't judge others based on how they look. I wish that people weren't afraid to look however they turn out. I wish that people didn't buy in to some 'Hollywood' norm that they want to look like. I wish that people treated Everyone with respect. I wish that people would accept all sorts of personalities ~ acknowledging all the parts of themselves as well as of others.

Tell us a funny story relating to caricature... Lol ~ That's a funny question! Since I feel like funny is all CARICATURE should be about! Playing and laughing.

What are your interests? Strokes ~ made with Markers or Colorsticks, Pencils, Brushes..... Strokes ~ made with Hands or Arms, Feet..... How my body works ~ Weight-lifting and Jogging.... People, TV, Movies, Music, Meditation..... Yes! Meditation ~ That is my approach to All my other interests ~ choosing my Focus. So many different things we can choose to focus on when we are doing any thing

What is one thing that cheers you up? Meditation

What does being a caricature artist mean to you? Being a CARICATURE ARTIST is to know how to really do IT. To understand that Real Art happens only when we are Really in the Zone. Pure Unconcontrolled Experience. Drawing CARICATURES is a time when I can practice that ~ so I will know how to do it when I'm Dancing, Loving, Eating, Talking, playingscrabblecleaningthebathroomsweepingthefloorsitting, answering these Interview Questions ~ Yes I want to leave my answer with that long runtogether word. I feel like it expresses what I'm talking about.

Who or what inspires you as an artist? I look at the Artwork by other Great Artists for Inspiration. Including Peter Maxx, John Lennon, Joe Bluhm, George W Bush, Daniel Greene, Kira Layli,, Charles Sovek, Andy Warhol, Angie Jordan, Keith Haring,

What is your favorite movie OR music? My favorite music is The Arkhams ~ I use it to jog. My favorite movie is Into The Woods.

What was your favorite toy as a child, .....or now? My IPad Pro ~ It's what I've always been waiting for! It's here! It actually exists!

What would you like to tell other Artists? Lighten up. We are just Drawing Pictures
