Art Inspiration: Imagine The Impossible: Steampunk Woman 12  


    

‘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 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 eighth caricature is a great teacher and friend. I’ve known this person some years and she is as tough as they get and for that reason I wanted her caricature to reflect it. I began be drawing her wearing pants, something women did not do during the Victorian era. I then added knee-high boots and a leather corset with a beige shirt underneath it. Her hair is usually up therefore I drew the caricature with this in mind but I also added the goggles. I added a couple of side bags and gave her a modified rifle with a scope to finish it off.

She really enjoyed her caricature, as did many of the other staff. I hope you enjoy the eighth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

The sixth caricature is a great mom, teacher and friend. I’ve known this person for many years and I wanted to show that she is not someone to mess with. I started with a short sleeve shirt with a corset but then I added the dagger on the sleeve. I had her in a pair of pants to show that she doesn’t conform to what society says to do. I drew in a pair of repeating pistols that are very similar to Han Solo’s gun from Star Wars. I then drew in the gun belt, goggles and pouch but the big thing was her hair. She once had dreadlocks and I wanted to draw her with dreads. It was a bit of a challenge but in the end I liked the end result.

She really enjoyed her caricature, especially the dreadlocks, as did many of the other staff. I hope you enjoy the sixth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

The fifth caricature is a person who can be best described as stead and reliable. I wanted to show that person could have an adventurous side but also be humble with what she does. I began with a short dress it would have a train so to show some leg. I added the corset with a stylish bra and a bow to match. I added the elbow length gloves for a touch of style and then to finish the outfit I drew in the small top hat with the feathers.

She really enjoyed her caricature, especially the stockings, as did many of the other staff. I hope you enjoy the fifth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

The fourth caricature is a person who is always ready to lend a helping hand but also adventurous. I wanted to show that adventurous side but also her independence; therefore I drew her wearing pants, which was unthinkable during Victorian times. I drew here with a corset but no shirt for some added daring. I was thinking alone the lines of an aeronaut / pilot of a dirigible so I added the aviator cap with goggles. I added the bag and sidearm to finish the look.

She really enjoyed her caricature, as did many of the other staff. I hope you enjoy the fourth steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

The second caricature is a person who is one that would help anyone if they asked for it. I wanted to show this person with more of a rebellious side; hence I began drawing her wearing a corset and short skirt or slip with the dress frame on the outside. However, I took this one step further by drawing the caricature showing a lot leg that showed off garter stockings. I then added a tight shirt that showed off a bit of cleavage. I finished off the caricature by adding a pair of steampunk binoculars and a flintlock pistol, for that “don’t mess with me” look.

She enjoyed the caricature, especially the garter stockings, as did many of the other staff. I hope you enjoy the second steampunk caricature from “Imagine the Impossible.”

Friday Two Cents: Visiting Local Communities in Ontario Part 5


twoCentsOldNew

  A couple of weeks ago I posted about going to Niagara-on-the-lake. At the time I went with my family and I could not visit any wineries. But the second time I went with friends and this time we visited a couple of wineries on top of Niagara-on-the-lake, Niagara Falls and the casino.  

  We began our excursion into the world of wines at Hillebrand Winery. There we enjoyed a wonderful tour of the winery and we learned a bit about the winery and at that they make sparkling wine in the French style.   We all know it as Champaign but because we are not in the region of Champaign, France you cannot call it that, so they call it sparkling wine. They motioned that they make thousands of bottles of sparkling wine there and we were shown the wine cellar where there must have been tens of thousands of sparkling wine bottles.

Wine Tasting

  After we had a structured wine tasting with a white, red and an ice wine. The tour and wine tasting was very well done but of course I enjoyed the tasting the most. Following the tasting we went into the wine store where they had a vast selection of wines from the winery. These wines are not sold in the LCBO but just at the winery or their specialty wine stores around the province.

  With some wine bought and our stomachs reminding us that lunch was here, we made our way down to Niagara-on-the-lake. There we were able to find a parking spot near the park by the lake and enjoy a wonderful picnic. After the meal we did enjoy the town but did not stay long because we wanted to visit one more winery.

  Peller Estates Winery was our next stop. We had another tour and wine tasting but we also enjoyed a great winery experience. Their wine was amazing as was the ice wine but learning about the history of wine region and tasting different wines that I normally would not drink was worth the trip. Not to mention I got a great bottle of Riesling Ice Wine from there, added to my experience (I did promise to share the wine with my friend though).

  With evening fast approving we got into the car and made our way to Niagara Falls. A trip to the region is incomplete without a trip to the Falls and this was not exception. I have been going the Falls from when I was a young boy and yet they continue to bring joy to my world. I guess knowing that I have this beautiful natural wonder right at my door step makes me feel that all is right in the world.

  In recent years they have added a casino to the Niagara Falls landscape. I am not much of a gambler and neither were my friends but I did mention that they do have a wonderful buffet in the casino. So naturally after we visited the Falls we made our way to the casino and the buffet. While I was sitting in the restaurant finishing my desert (Coconut cream pie, Yum) I had to reflect on the day. We had beautiful weather, two wine tours and tastings, a picnic by the lake, a walk by Niagara Falls, a good dinner at the casino all with the company of friends. All of this only an hour and a half from home. Who needs to go away on vacation when you have all this within driving distance.
