SKETCHIN’ & SKATIN’
The Caricature Art of Hector Lopez
You probably don’t know who Hector Lopez is, but perhaps you have seen his art. He is an illustrator, cartoonist and the Official Oklahoma City Thunder Caricature Artist. By day he loves to spend time on his skateboard. But when the Thunder plays at home you can always find Hector in the hallway of Section 302 of the Chesapeake Arena doing what he does best, sketching caricatures of Thunder Fans; a skill he calls “Fast Food Art.” With a quick glance and a confident stroke of the pen, Hector effortlessly captures the essence of his subjects’ in less than three minutes. “When people ask me if drawing caricatures is my profession, I say it’s more like my anti-profession; because I arrived at it by being unprofessional and doodling all the time.” Join, Gallery as we spend time with this one-of-a-kind artist for a little Sketchin’ & Skatin’.

Ten years ago a secretary at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City felt drawn to do something to help her community. Since St. Luke’s is located near the city’s urban area, that “something” quickly focused on children in need. Today, that church secretary, Julie Robinson, is now the founder and executive director of Studio 222. The Studio, as it is called, brings in professional artists to expose at-risk children to lessons in creativity they may not otherwise experience, but art is just the main course. The children are fed a full meal. They are mentored. They hear guest lectures on everything from business to etiquette. Studio children go on field trips every week and, in a practical move, they also get free transportation to the program and home in the evening. Join Gallery in May as we visit Studio 222 and meet the hosts of artists and volunteers who join forces every day to give children a chance to shine.
