There isn’t so much I could say about myself. Just only that my life was a mess before I started to do cartoon drawings. Now I know that before you try something, you never know if this is what you should do.
What a wonderful feeling it is – to draw a cartoon character. First, you look at the portrait photo and smile to the person. Mentally you introduce yourself: “Hey there! You look nice today. Let’s see what distinguishes you from the 7 billion mass of people.” It is also a challenge. Sometimes I spend an hour just looking at people’s faces before gathering my drawing ideas, trying to find their unique features, to guess their temper, to make up their story. All this stuff helps me to feel like they are my good friends because this is what brings something, call it spirit or soul, to those lines and spots.
After the work is done, I look at it again: “Hello, my little creation! So do I recognize my friend from that photo?”. I always give positivity to my funny drawings, because this is what it’s all about.
P.S. The most important part – I’m only interested in creating real-life people’s caricatures, not existing The Simpsons characters, which are objects of copyright.
