The Expressive Face

How did artists like Norman Rockwell, Austin Briggs, Jon Whitcomb, and others create the believable unique faces that can tell a whole story by themselves? In a magazine cover, like those by Rockwell and Stevan Dohanos, the image, with its setting and, most of all, its characters, must convey an anecdote without any help from words. So each face must be carefully crafted to do its part in creating the drama⸺or comedy.

A number of pueblo artists have drawn elaborate mythological birds. Almost all the early pueblo artists, including Julian Martinez, Awa Tsireh, Ma Pe Wi, Richard Martinez and others, have done so. Pablita Velarde was no exception. The general concept was to elaborately color the bird. It does not necessarily have any relation to reality, but is highly mythological.
