I LOVE TO DRAW A GOOFY LOOKING GIRL By Elgin Bolling
My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable, unphotographable
Yet you're my favorite work of art
Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak, are you smart?
But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay
Each day ON THE SUBWAY is Valentine's Day
I Recently posted this on the ART JUMBLE Blog. The Subject this week was "GIRLS" and while most of the artists displayed the usual bevy of curvaceous big booty cuties with bodacious breasts, as usual, I saw things through the fun house mirror of my own caricature lens.
I can think of nothing more boring than drawing a ugh.. so called, "Beautiful Girl" at least as dictated by Madison Ave standards. As a caricature artist I truly find beauty in the off beat and out of the ordinary. When I ride the Subway trains of this great metropolitan city we call the BIG APPLE I never cease to be mesmerized by the endless varieties of faces, the odd conflagrations, the physical proof of unlikely pairing of Male Female union that produces the outstanding faces that continue to appear on my sketchpad, and live in my imagination.
Give me a Goofy Gurl to draw ANY DAY on the SUBWAY! I consider THAT a FUNDAY!! Draw a "pretty girl/" NO WAY!
