Caricatures and Folk Art

How To Get A Caricature …

We’re coming soon to a conference or retreat near you, and we’ll be doing caricatures … LIVE … and FREE! But if you can’t get there, we’ll also be taking orders online, beginning in early August.

The online caricatures won’t be live, of course, and they can’t be free (we need to charge about $25 to cover our costs), but they’ll still be wonderful fun — and thought provoking too!

Watch our website here on Catholic Roads for more information.

What About The Folk Art? …

Folk art is a cultural phenomenon that emerges naturally when untrained people with raw passion create art. It’s not always conventional, but this simple approach to reflecting life can be quaint and friendly.

Folk art is important to us, especially when stories are part of the fare. We’re storytellers in the tradition of Papa Joe Cook and Guppy Willis. If you live near a big city, chances are, you’ve never heard of either man. But if you ever sat on a front porch with one of them, sipping sweet tea and listening to an incredible-but-absolutely-true-story-as-the-mid-summer-sun-finally-set-behind-the-neighbor’s-trees (Whew! That was a mouthful), you would agree that both of them are unforgettable.

We like to describe front porch stories as “… timeout from the Holy Highway to make sense of yesterday and tomorrow.” Keep a lookout here online for an invitation to sit on the front porch with us soon!

Looking Forward …

While folk art and caricature don’t have that much in common, they do integrate with intriguing results. So let’s get together for a few caricatures and maybe swap some stories too as we travel God’s Holy Highway together.

That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. It’s cool to be Catholic. COOL2B!

In Christ!
