Why Caricatures Are Great for the Holiday Season

The fall foliage is here and it will soon be replaced by snow depending on where you live in the country of course. Clearly, we have entered the holiday season, so get ready. Now for many in the country, this is an exciting time. For starters, you get the chance to hang with friends and family, but for others, it’s a stressful time where the daily grind cranks up to eleven and roughs us up seemingly every second. It is a time where some of us feel stretched out as if one hand is touching the sky and the other hand is cuffed to piping in the basement. It’s tough to feel the enjoyment of that holiday cheer when it feels like we’re propped up on the autopsy table.

Here’s a suggestion to make this season a little less stressful: embrace art, your creative pursuits, and caricature in particular. Remember that art can lift us up out of the abyss and into a brand new day. There’s no greater purpose of art than that and it can play a huge role in getting us through the holidays unscathed and healthy.

Art Relieves StressThe problem when we are weighed down by the season is that we lose touch with ourselves. Despite there being a plethora of parties we frequent, it’s as if we’re on another planet, as if we’re not ourselves. How can we possibly enjoy the season when it’s as if a stranger is living inside our bodies? Imagine a caricaturist at those parties sketching your true self. That might just be the best gift of them all.

With Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and other important days coming in the next couple of months, it is safe to say the holiday season is almost upon us.
