About the Piece


I.   Lethargic

II.  Quirky

III. Unkempt

IV. Exuberant

V.  Snarky

VI. The New One

Caricatures is a piece comprised of four miniature movements that are centered around people I know, all of whom share two things in common:  they were or are a roommate of mine and our first meeting was via Craig’s List.  These portrayals focus on one particular personality trait that is possibly quite overblown.  So thanks, AW, JH, KL and KM for the inspiration!
