Okie Artist

Ok, I love caricatures. Always have. I love having them done of me, and I enjoy watching artists create them. There's just something about pinpointing an individual's dominant features, then over-emphasizing them, that fascinates me. Besides the artistic talent, that seems to me to be a whole other grand ability altogether.

Why do I mention this? Because I found a site that I think people should see - that of a caricature artist residing in Oklahoma. Check out Okie Artist, and take a gander at Teresa Farrington's work. There's GOBS of it on the site, alone.

Due to her amazing pencil, ink and airbrush work, she has been named the "official Oklahoma State Caricature Artist as designated by Oklahoma Congress in March of 2005." (From her website.) That's quite a distinction, folks, and worthy of some attention.

So, what are you waiting for? Go there, already!
