Art Inspiration: Imagine The Impossible: Steampunk Woman 13


‘The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.’ Aristotle

‘Imagination is more important than knowledge.’ Albert Einstein

Inspiration and Imagination, something every artist needs and is elusive as an island of tranquility in a sea of chaos. 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.

A prime example is when I drew the staff at my school as cartoon characters or caricatures for their Christmas Cards. It took quit a while to create the caricatures but once the staff received them they loved the cards and caricatures. 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 thirteenth caricature is a wonderful teacher who is a good person through and through. She is a quiet soul and will always help you whenever asked. I have always thought of her as resembling Ariel from the Little Mermaid, therefore I decided to draw her caricature with this theme in mine. I began with a corset and then instead of a frilly dress, I drew a skin-tight dress along the thighs and then it would frill out at the knees to represent a mermaid’s tail. I added a blouse that showed some cleavage and a belt and feather hairpin. I added the navigational instruments of a compass, eyeglass and pocket watch to finish the look.

She really enjoyed her caricature especially the dress. She and many noticed the mermaid reference right away. I hope you enjoy the thirteenth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”
