A Note of Thanks :-)

Before I make my big blog-announcement (I know…I know – I get excited about small things, forget all about perspectives and vanishing points, and perceive an absolutely normal everyday event (?!) as something special, but then that’s me,) I want to say thanks to everyone who’s ever visited my blog, read the “How to Draw Caricatures book – The Evolution of a Caricaturist“, participated in the “Story-in-the-Caricature Blog Carnival“, left a comment, written me an email, or offered me a drawing assignment 🙂

I made many wonderful friends in the blogosphere, but I’d like to make a special mention of the following bloggers as my days became better and brighter because of them.

Thank you for your visits, friendship, help, and guidance:) Thank you for bringing me smiles and laughter:)

Coming up shortly is the Announcement Post – It’s going to be colorful, and I hope that you’ll all enjoy it:)

Best Regards,
Shafali

Thank You Nancy! Coming up soon…the Polymer Clay Caricature of the Horned Devil:-)

This week I received a fabulous surprise, which swept me off my feet. From a land far far away came a box….and in that box were two Clay Sculpting Tool-sets  and many other beautiful inspirations in the form of clay dogs.  I’d like to thank Nancy Johanson (Dewey‘s Gram) for everything that I’ve ever done with clay (which isn’t really much so far – about 2.5 clay caricatures) and everything that I’ll ever do. I would never have discovered this beautiful medium – I’d never have thought that the little clay packets that they sold in those stationery stores with those not-so-inspirational clay model pictures on their boxes held such potential.

Nancy, whatever I do with clay – ever in my life, would be because of you. You are my inspiration…and I hope that one day I’ll make you proud. Thank you for the tools. I am so happy to have a tool for sculpting every little idea that pops into my head.

THANK YOU NANCY 🙂

The eyebrow tweezers and the screwdrivers are no match to even a single tool in this fabulous collection. I hope that you’ll all see a marked improvement in the level of detail and the overall quality of my clay caricatures.

The sculpture of the Horned Devil, my first attempt to create a Polymer Clay Sculpture with the tools, is done – but it has to be painted before it can debut on the blog:)  I shall complete it soon and post it for your viewing pleasure.
