Art Inspiration: Staff Cartoons The Dream Team: Xena Warrior Princess


StaffCartoons01

I have been told in the past and in recent days, that I have been an inspiration to the children at school and to other people in general.  I have always found this interesting because I feel that these people and the children inspire me to create art and images instead of the other way around.

One example is when I drew the staff at my school as cartoon characters.  It started one year around Christmas when we have our Christmas concert and staff dinner.  Always after the concert, we go out for dinner and we exchange gifts, such as a Chris Kringle.  I wanted to liven things up and instead of giving Christmas cards, I decided to create my own with the staff members as a character from a movie.  The staff members were surprised to say the least and they loved it, with a couple of exceptions on some humorous levels. 

The next character is modeled after Lucy Lawless and her portrayal of Xena: Warrior Princess from the television series called Xena, airing from 1995 – 2001.  The character a fictional character set in the ancient Greek world, a spinoff of the Hercules series.  She is an infamous warrior that is looking for redemption.  Therefore she is traveling the ancient world using her great warrior skills righting wrongs and helps those who cannot help themselves.

 The staff member is somewhat similar to the character I modeled her after.  Not the infamous warrior but a warrior in her own right.  Being a mother of girls it sometimes feels that you are fighting the good fight, righting the wrongs of the world.  This staff member also reminded me of Xena.  It does not hurt that she is a tall woman and she kind of looks like a warrior character.  

The character is a very strong role model for girls and women.  It illustrates that women can be strong and fierce individuals, but still have a feminine side.  The staff member has all these traits and more.  She is a great mother and strong woman to boot.  If you ever want someone on your side she is the one you can count on.

She really enjoyed the caricature and the inspiration behind it, as did the staff and her family.  I hope you enjoy Xena, Warrior Princess.
