Words Of The Wisdomless Winners

Posted Sep 12 2009 12:00am

The “Words Of The Wisdomless” August winners got to see their caricatures this week.  On the 7th, I sat down for a few hours and drew out and inked them.  I ended up drawing 5 people.  2 winners and 3 others for someone from Entrecard who ordered them months ago.

The whole process takes about 3 hours for each caricature.  Most of the time spent coloring it.  I guess if I had the right training, I could cut that time in half.  For the most part, it’s all trial an error.  That is what makes it a little more special when people realize the time that goes into it.   I’m taking that time away from my life just to draw them…

I’m happy that I can do the caricatures with the Wisdom quote commenter.  I do get a little anxious when I draw them.  Since most of the time, I feel like I’m guessing on how to do them…  That is not too far from the truth since I’ve only had one 2 hour classes on how to draw them.    It’s just like the cartoon-a-thon cartoons.  I look at it as art therapy.  Unlike the cartoons that are meant for everybody, the caricatures are personal between me and my subject.

Here are this month’s winners:

KKristiristi is a Peer Support Specialist and co-founded of DBSA Northeast Louisiana.  Living with Bipolar Disorder for 18 years, she knows all the ups and downs with it.  She is a great volunteer and will be able to help more of her peers with the degree in Psychology/Criminal Justice she’s working on at Ashford University.
