I am not political at all - in the matter of fact I don't know a person who know less about politics than me, so you might be suprised...
Visual Studies tutor asked us to respond to the theme "Crisis in the Credit System". It's our project now. I'm making a political caricature...
i came across an article in a newspaper and saw this picture, I decided to try and make a caricature (don't laugh it's the first time I've done that:) ok you can laugh:)
the scanned copy is not of good quality (women says: "Credit Crisis? - Let's go shopping, when we come back it should all be over."). More visible on my flickr.
I got some books from library ("Masters of Caricature from Hogarth and Gillray to Scarfe and Levine" and "Celebrity Caricature in America") today and really liked caricature byGeorge Benjamin Luks (1867-1933), so I copied a part of it:
it's amazing what you can learn from the masters!!!
Now I have to go and read upon it...Credit Crisis, figures just make it all so difficult...or maybe it's just more convinient and easy to stay away from all of these things...although lack of knowledge doesn't mean that problem doesn't exist.
