Art Inspiration: Imagine The Impossible: Steampunk Woman 16


‘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 sixteenth caricature is a wonderful teacher whom I have worked with on many occasions. She is a force to be reckoned with, and I wanted to show this with her caricature. I began with a corset and I drew it with extra leather straps/belts on it. But I wanted it to be part of a vest combo so I drew in the top part of the vest with collars. I then added an over sized white shirt similar to a pirate shirt. I wanted to show that she was a rebel therefore I drew her wearing pants and a large shotgun style rifle on a leg holster held there with a bullet belt. I then added a smaller side arm on the other side, leather boots and goggles in her hair.

She loved her caricature, as did the others. I hope you enjoy the sixteenth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

Comic Strips: The Fine Print


 

This month’s latest instalment of, The Craziest Things is coming out on Valentine’s Day since, as you may have guessed, it is Valentine themed. In this comic I explore the growing trend towards a more litigious society and with what is happening in the world when it comes to relationships.

Many of us have seen when someone says something it may be taken in the wrong way or come back and bit them in the behind. More and more we as a society are falling onto the law to help protect or prosecute many things.

I thought what would happen if the above trend was translated into the innocent world of giving Valentine cards. So many of us have given and received Valentine cards in our childhood. It was a time of innocent fun and an opportunity to say thank you to your classmates and friends for being your friend. Yet what if someone took it too far and wanted to protect them-selves for fear of some future scrutiny. When does it go to far?

I guess we should heed Winston Churchill’s warning…

‘If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law.’ Winston Churchill

With this in mind, I hope you enjoy the latest instalment of, The Craziest Things; The Fine Print.

Steampunk Woman 15

The fifteenth caricature is a wonderful teacher who loves the children and has a personal favourite activity that I too enjoy, baseball. Her outfit is not really in the steampunk style but I did try to draw her caricature close to her personality and to the time period of steampunk. I began with her stance as if she is about to go up to bat or take down someone. I drew her uniform very close to the style of the women’s baseball league you may have seen in the movie A League Of Their Own, based the true woman’s league. Also I remember her wearing one very similar this one for Halloween. I then added thigh high stockings; a baseball cap and a baseball bat to give her that “I’m sweet but don’t mess with me” look.  

She truly enjoyed her caricature. She loved the uniform and mentioned that she has one like the one I drew. I told her I do remember but also that sometimes my caricatures come from the person’s own style too. I hope you enjoy the fifteenth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

The fourteenth caricature is a wonderful teacher who loves the children and to have fun while working with them. She is kind and gentle and I thought lets add a little naughty side to her persona. Therefore I began with a corset and white shirt then a short skirt to show off her long legs. She is a tall woman and I wanted to show this with the clothes she would wear. I drew the caricature with stockings and long knee-high boots to accentuate her height. I then added a top hat and goggles to show her long flowing hair. It is also something I know she would wear. The to finish off the look I gave her the biggest steampunked rifle I drew to show that she may be a nice sweet person but she is also a badass.

She really enjoyed her caricature especially her badass gun. She mentioned that she has boot like the ones I drew and I said I know I saw her wearing them once. Sometimes my caricatures come from the person’s own style too. I hope you enjoy the fourteenth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

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.”

The twelfth caricature is a wonderful teacher who always wears a smile and is a sweet heart to the core. She always has a nice thing to say and is the gentlest person I know. Therefore I wanted her caricature be a badass and show a different side of her then she wouldn’t normally show. I began with a corset-vest combination and then added a rolled up shirt that showed some cleavage. Instead of pants or a long skirt I drew her with a mini-skirt that showed a lot of leg. I then added the leather boots and two belts, one with bullets. Her hair comes down past her shoulders and then I put in goggles for an extra touch. However, instead of drawing her holding a gun or a rife I thought she would look tougher with a kick ass sword. I draw her with a sword that was more of a cross between a sword and an axe. The results were pretty badass.

She really enjoyed her caricature especially the tough look of the caricature and she loved the sword. I hope you enjoy the twelfth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

The eleventh caricature is a wonderful teacher and a lovely person that thinks of the students in everything she does. She is a bit quiet but she is always there to lend a helping hand. I wanted to draw her caricature a little riské, therefore I began with a corset and instead of a blouse I added a sheer top to show off a little cleavage. I then added a short skirt that allowed the caricature to show off her stockings and garters. Then I drew in the knee-high leather boots and a side pack. I had her hair come down onto her shoulders but I added a lady’s hat with feathers for that elegant look. The one thing that was different then the other caricatures is that everyone had either a necklace or earrings that had one gear as a piece of jewelry. Yet with this caricature I drew in three on her necklace. This is because she was my secret Santa and it was part of a game I did when I game everyone the final portrait with everyone on it.

She really enjoyed her caricature especially the stockings; as did everyone else. I hope you enjoy the eleventh steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”
