Amelia - La Liberté Guidant le Peuple

After this semester's schoolwork I have completed an astonishing caricature for Amelia. She is depicted as Marianne, the embodiment of French Republicanism, in the pose of La Liberté from the painting Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix. In her right arm (left) Amelia clutches the coat of the French Existentialist novelist Albert Camus. In her left hand (right) Amelia hoists a silver candlestick, which glows with masonic imagery, stolen from the altar at the rear. The setting is the Cathedral of Lyon where the Bishop Myriel, a character in Victor Hugo's novel Les Misérables, generously offers Amelia this silver candlestick in exchange for a promise a moral and honest life. Pink, blue and gold light streams through the brilliant Gothic stained glass windows, as medievalism is allegorically synthesized with modern French Republicanism in a stupendous exhibition of Amelia's charm, literary interests, and personal brilliance.

Restoration of James's Caricature

After learning how to use Adobe Photoshop, I have spent the past week restoring and correcting the mistakes of a poorly scanned image of James's caricature. I will give James a new print of it on his 23rd Birthday.

Teresa the Internet Fox

Teresa is a philosophy student at UT Austin. She is a wily young woman with fiery red hair, whose whose identity is fragmented into a medley of cyberspace personas. In this caricature I aimed to accentuate her pointed nose, large ear, chin, black-rimmed glasses and wry smile. I depicted her as a red fox to better match her hair, and with her laptop to her side with which she is simultaneously in and out of cyberspace.
