Karen Caldicott has been busy since we visited her in July. The illustrator’s plasticine heads now grace the pages of Crafts magazine (UK), where two columnist portraits appear in each issue, and her clay rendition of Palin and McCain made the September cover of The Nation (she even crafted a clever winking Palin animation for the magazine).
Last month Caldicott started a blog where she posts “out takes, mistakes, bits and other hopefully interesting bobs that I find along the way”. A recent post included this video of a head in progress (the subject is Grant, an editor for the UK magazine Crafts). Love the time-lapse.
Here is Grant’s finished head:
Next up? A profile of Caldicott is due out soon in the upcoming issue of Crafts and the New York transplant will also be joining the German illustration agency Margarethe Hubauer, with more work to come in Europe. Busy, I tell you, busy.
By the way, her ‘bobs’ are worth exploring…cool links.
