Art Inspiration: Staff Cartoons In A League of Their Own: Left Fielder


 

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

A prime example is when I draw 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 caricature.

This was the year I went to New York and saw my Beloved Yankees play at Yankee Stadium and then make a side trip to Cooperstown, NY to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame.  To say that the trip inspired the caricatures this year would be stating the obvious.  The staff members were expecting something along the lines of the previous years caricatures but were still surprised by the finished product.

The staff loved the cards and caricatures and in the next few weeks I will be posting a few of the characters from the cards because these people inspired me to create these characters.  Hopefully they can inspire others. 

The first caricature is a staff member that was new to the school.  She had long blonde hair and I wanted to exaggerate this.  From my previous experience I learned that you could never make the caricature too thin.  Therefore I made all the characters thin.  But the other area I exaggerated were the breasts in this series of caricatures.  You will see that all the women had large breasts.  Once I presented the cards to the staff with the images they all noticed the thin waists and larger breasts even though many did not have large breasts. 

They all enjoyed the caricature of the staff member, as did she.  I hope you enjoy the first caricature of the left fielder from “In A League of Their Own”.
