Siouxsie Sioux Caricature: sometimes you have these tongue-twistery things rattling around in your head and the only way to exorcise them is to draw them. Siouxsie Sioux Sushi Sous. Siouxsie Sioux Sushi Sous. Siouxsie Sioux Sushi Sous…
Tobe Nwigwe is one of the most consistently creative artists working today, with a singular artistic vision only matched by the prolificacy of his output. He, Fat and Nell (and the kids!) have this unified aesthetic from furniture to clothing, and the Pandemic Project was an uplifting event at a time when everything was bleak. The whole family-centred approach to music and video creation is radically wholesome and is really inspirational, but there’s room for brooding and darkness in there too. I’m a bit of a fan. It’s utterly jaw-dropping how much music he’s put out in the last year. Did I mention I’m a bit of a fan?
This is a caricture portrait of Tobe Nwigwe and Fat created in Procreate for the iPad. I intend to do a series of caricature portraits to hone my digital painting. I’m quite late to the digital game so the learning curve is somewhere between a really large hoola-hoop and one of the rings of Saturn. I’m finding it a curse and a blessing, there’s huge time savings to be had but an amazing gulf conceptually between drawing on paper and drawing and painting digitally. It’s the long way to Carnagie Hall for the next while.
Personalised Caricature for 30th Birthday: there’s been a lot of birthdays celebrated in absentia in the last 10 months and looks like we’ll be continuing that way for a while yet. *HOWEVER* you can still reach out to that loved one on their birthday with one of my contactless digital caricatures! This one was to celebrate the 30th birthday of the subject and was a gift from one of her close friends. It features many personalised references including fitness, sport, race medals, music, favourite drinks and favourite fashions! I had a strange craving for coffee while drawing this… 🤣☕
