I posted this today after making up my mind that I want to get back to the three cartoons a week scheme that I was following religiously in Alicante. I posted this on Facebook and Instagram, but made the mistake of not putting my main tag line into it, which was 'trick or trick?' Instead I put Happy Halloween and I think it pretty much reduced the overall impact of the cartoon. Oh well, time constraints are good for somethings but bad for others. But overall I say they bing more good. This election is coming up in a few days and I can't believe that this is the choice that the American people have. Who would have thought? After such a historic even such as the first black president we would have this kind of a match up? Well its in eight days, and I think most of the world is hoping for one results. But with the recent Brexit, and then the FARC truce vote, you never really know...
This is an ink wash commission that I did for a Psychologist Client who runs her practice in Halifax, Canada. Was a lot of fun to do, as it involved researching famous psychologists, mainly during the same period, and what their theories were. The challenge was to create a setting, which was telling of what each one was famous for. Starting from the left corner and going clockwise, we have Hermann Rorschach who was famous for the ink blot test. There there was Ivan Pavlov who was famous for his work in classical conditioning where he conditioned dogs to associate a bell ring with food. Everytime he introduced food to the dog, they would salivate, and at the same time he would play a bell. Eventually, the dog would just salivate to the sound of the bell! (association). Then there is Jean Piaget, famous for his work on Child Development. Next is Aaron T. Beck who is famous for Cognitive Therapy and studying depression. Next is Sigmund Freud, famous for psychoanalysis, and behind him is his disciple who later turned away from him, Carl Jung. Lastly, sitting on the floor is B. F. Skinner who is famous for Operant Conditioning used to study animal behaviour.
I have put an end to my old blog http://daneshdailies.blogspot.com as I felt that I wanted a fresh start and also wanted to have all my stuff under one roof. The above is a sketch for Saba and Zafar's wedding in New Delhi in late October, and this is them watching a Qawali band playing. As always, I love drawing with music as I feel the rhythm naturally infuses into the lines and some how expresses the music visually.... at least I would hope so!
