Art Inspiration: Staff Cartoons A Pirate’s Life For Me: Female Pirate Crew 05


Inspiration. Something every artist needs and is illusive as the Lock Ness Monster. Many people have told me that I inspire the children and people in general with what I do. Whether creating art, playing baseball or trying to improve my life people say that I have inspired others to try new things and look inside themselves. I have always found this interesting because I get my inspiration from these very people. Whether it be a child asking me about Mythology or adults asking me about their children or even just talking to people about anything, they have inspire me to create and use my imagination to bring the impossible possible.

A prime example is when I draw the staff at my school as cartoon characters or caricatures. 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 year the inspiration for the caricatures came from the children’s concert. We were doing a Pirates Christmas and at the same time Pirates of the Caribbean was out. Also for Halloween I dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow and everyone loved the costume. It made me imagine, what would it be like if the staff where all pirates? From these simple beginnings I decided to draw all the staff as pirate caricatures.

Well 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 spur imagination and inspire others.

The next caricature is a staff member that was new to the school. I did not know how she would react to this caricatures I usually draw, therefore I tried to keep it a little conservative. The other side is that she was a quiet person and only started a few weeks before I usually start drawing the caricatures for the Chris Kringle.

With her caricature I really did not want top do anything to over the top, so I basically drew her with a very simple pirate costume. She is also a Latina so thought of Penelope Cruz when I drew her. The fourth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean was out so I thought this character was perfect fit.

I drew her with a simple puffy top that showed some cleavage, with a simple vest and skirt. To finish the look I drew in the typical pirate hat and sabre and there you have a female pirate.

This caricature was not that riské, but it did show a bit of cleavage and some skin but many said that it was cute. Interesting that with certain staff I could go riské when drawing their caricature but others I did not feel I should. Well she truly enjoyed the caricature and that was what I was hoping for.

I hope you too will enjoy the fifth pirate caricature from “A Pirate’s Life For Me.”
