Art Tip File: Visual Jokes in Art

The Importance of Humor

An art tip from Dana Hawk


“When I first started painting, I felt I had to follow the curriculum—still life, figure, landscape and so on—but I got bored. I’d feel I was ‘so done with it’ before I actually finished. Working on a picture that’s funny, that contains a visual joke, keeps me motivated.” ~ Dana Hawk from the June 2012 issue (“Dog Daze”)
