Senegalese Caricatures of My Aunt and Uncle
On a recent visit with my Aunt Lorsie (Dolores
), she brought out and showed me these amazing caricature drawings that a friend of hers in Dakar, Senegal, did of herself and Uncle Charlie while they lived there working with New Tribes Mission. The drawings are done on the backs of scrap cardboard, discarded printing proofs of pharmaceutical packaging. I love the “grotesque” nature of his drawings, and its very assured line work.
