1) Today's caricature is one from the Archives: George C. Scott. This
picture is about 13 years old and done in the days of timed drawings (where
I was doing drawings with a timer: starting at 20 minutes per drawing
lowering that to about 5 minutes over a 6-8 week period. (I think that's how
long it was...my memory's going!) Does the drawing work? Kind of I think.
(But I'll let you be the judge).
If you look close you can see texture in the paper - this was drawn
on heavy paper made for charcoal drawing. It's a different touch - the texture
that is. If you work too small it gets in the way. If you work on a slightly
larger scale it really adds "tooth" to pictures.
2) On a different note, the new web site is finally up! It's still at the
You Can Draw address (http://www.youcandraw.com). Go check it out and let me
know what you think. The link to go to the Insider's loft is in the left
hand column - last entry. You'll also see we're on CD-ROM now too. (I'll be
offering all of you an opportunity to get it at a discount - so watch your
I'm going to try to get one more communique out before the Christmas break -
I'll be going to Minneapolis for one week (that's home) and I'll be back in
LA after the New Years. I know things have been sporadic lately - there's
been a great deal going on behind the scenes (like broken motherboards,
CD-ROM burners, ill-working networks, dysfunctional merchant accounts - I
won't bore you !! :-) But we're getting back up to speed and everything's in
place for 2001. I'm most excited because I think I can finally get back to
diving in to the in-depth caricatures.
So to all a blessed Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Ramadan...Holiday season.
Talk to you one more time this year...
