Baseball coach

I had a repeat job from a client I did of a base ball player where he was wearing a double hat ( I tried to find it but could not find it) It is fun to working on high quality water color paper, and really like how I am able to achieve really effective values and textures.
This week I have a Trade show at the Tampa Bay Convention center for DST output. Will share more soon! Good night

Here is my brain storm on the class:

Name: “Start your week out learning Art-Tainment (Caricatures) with Lars”
Short Description:

Week 1: First thing I will be all set up for a retail style Caricature booth with display and all. I would then draw a demonstration off a photo reference received from other fellow artist. I will have the drawing recorded and to be projected on a screen projector. They can observe the 5-7 quick Caricature in Black and white, and then another 5- minutes to add the color. I will then ask them to draw each other on the spot, get to know each other, and also so I can see the level of the students. The rest of the day talk history, foundations, and other links to references. Assignment is to do a value chart, draw shapes with shading in a medium of choice

week2: Have all your own sketch book to take notes, and sketch in to share with teacher. Importance of seeing shapes, squinting, sketching  from a photographs or the fellow student in front of you, critiques will be done with trace over lays by Lars.

week3: Demonstrate Traditional mediums, digital medium Caricatures and tricks in photshop for studio Caricatures. Home work continue to work on studio Caricature off a photo of a famous person or from photos supplied of my choosing. I will also be working a studio piece that you will be able to follow as the students work on there own work. Your final art work will be due at end of the month for grading.
week 4: I will continue to share news about the feild, share personal stories, work on private commissions right in the class that you will be able to along with, ask questions, while following my steps. You will be working on your final assignment in class, followed by me critiquing the Caricature art with a trace over lay or in photoshop showing pointers on how to improve. I encourage all my students to continue to keep me in the loop of your progress even after the class is over, but the further along you take the class with me the more advanced and harder the courses will be!

Old School Hip-Hop Reunion Illustrations

I am sure most of you know that my history is based out of the Hip-Hop Culture where I became very involved in the culture in Gothenburg Sweden. I lived there with my mother from 1979-1989, and I had to leave the country when I was 18 years old, because I got caught for vandalizing graffiti art, crime, and drugs. My mother freak out and sent me to live with my Father and his new family in Tampabay Area in Florida, USA. I still live here with my wonderful wife of 18 years and my son Sean 13 years Old, and my two goldens Jack and Jill. I am planning on going back to visit Sweden this Summer and looking forward to it. I was commissioned to paint some b-boy type Caricatures of the main Dj’s, Mc’s, Breakers at an up comig re-union event in Gothenburg Sweden on November 23rd.Follow the OlSchoolGbg page on Facebook for more info. Flyer is being put together and will be shared on here soon.

Here is the poster I worked on the Illustrations, it is nice to be recognized by other older friends from my past! If any one is In Sweden Gothenburg on November 23, you will have to go to STORAN “lilla Klubbscenen” from 11pm-3am. Price 100kr=$14.93 only 24 years and older! “Back To The Planet Rock”

Ken doctor/chef portrait

I was really close recently to go back to Sweden Gothenburg where I grew up, but for financial reason again I was not able to. I will have to just trust that my lord and savior will provide one day an opportunity to go back after almost 21 years. Here is a recent commission I just did for a family that wanted to give it as a gift. I am in the middle of now painting my new Bathroom so I better get back! See ya all later and as usual comments are always welcomed 🙂

Tom Waits Caricature Portrait

Here is a current Caricature Portrait done of Tom Waits for the Caricaturama Showdown group on Facebook. I had fun painting with Acrylics and tried to create a mood that is similar to his blues music. The original is 5-7″ on Canvas. I should have really tried to exaggerated alittle more to be recognized on this group, but maybe I wanted to do more of a portrait this time because I needed more for my portfolio. I hope everyone is doing good, and I always like to keep in touch.

Studio Caricatures

Studio caricatures are done at my home studio, and often involve me looking at several photos for inspiration, integrating the personality and hobbies or occupation of the model, and are more detailed. I enjoy doing these so much, as they are often surprises for a special birthday or that special boss. I love to see photos of the presentation and hear about the reaction. Also when you go to send the references on the quote page (to many photos just e-mail them separate at larserarts@gmail.com), please have the faces in several different angles, and close up. If you want body situations please either help describe or send a picture of that pose. Other details such as landmarks or other objects include them as well. Ask me about a studio caricature.
