Coffee Mugs

"The Dipping Bird" possibly originated in China, early in the 20th century.  By mid century, in the US, they seemed to have found their way onto innumerable CEO office desks and upper middle-class living rooms and dens.
If you look hard enough, you can still find them around.

Some physiognomies are to be tasted, others to be swallowed and some few to be chewed and digested.

Coffee Mugs

Everyone has their bag of hammers to deal with.
For some it's more of a mallet, for others it's akin to a gavel.
and many just deal with the extra pounds.

Coffee Mugs

The geometry of the form does well to parallel the inclination of the personality of the subject in question...
Isosceles for the isolated.
Pythagorean for the pithy.
Ratios for the rational.
Trajectories for the tragic.
and Manifolds for the wrinkly of hands.

Coffee Mugs

There is often more that can be said with body posture and mannerisms than is said with the face and expression.  It embodies more subtlety and portends more accusations than one might expect.  ~~it's a complex sentence from a nineteenth century novel; the face is pop art.

As simple as it sounds, it is imperative to remember that it's the understructure that defines the visible form.

Coffee Mugs

A few people have recently inquired about the media I use for these caricatures; I use a roller ball pen, usually Uni-ball --and I have three varied weights:  fine, micro and ultra micro. ...sometimes I use a bit of brush-pen (Pigma brush).  The paper is from a regular Canson hardbound sketchbook (5.5 in x 8.5in).  
There is no pencil line, I go direct with ink.

Coffee Mugs

I find it rather delightful to capture parallel pauses; there typically tends to be an echo from one body part to another with only a slight difference in energy.  Lips to hand, brows to mouth, ear to teeth, inhale to gravity.
