This year I have been looking to try a few new things in my caricature work. I love doing live caricatures, but in the past I haven't done a lot of studio work. So with the inspiration of other caricature artists and the organizers of a #caricatureresolution2017, a month long challenge to create an image of pre-determined celebrities, I am proud to say I've committed to growing in this art form, January and beyond.
In the caricature community there is a debate on the use of technology for producing our artwork. In researching some of my art peers I found this quote, "Digital caricatures take about 6 minutes per person. While this is less per hour than traditional caricatures, it’s a lot of fun to watch the drawing unfold and it’s a great “show” in itself." I believe this showcases the relative oddness in the belief that digital is faster or better.
