Summer Teeth – Some teeth here, some teeth there
As an entertainer I look for the unique qualities that make people and objects standout in the crowd. Many times it is a color combination that I study, but recently I have become fixated on a shingles commercial with Dennis Grogan, a retired firefighter.
Every time I see the commercial I cannot help but notice his teeth. I have become accustomed to seeing newscaster and celebrities with bleached whiten teeth. I forget how interesting crooked teeth are and how it defines the character.
I’m sure the ad has a targeted market group and Grogan fits the profile.
Yet, his crooked teeth I find interesting. I like using realistic character traits when I drawn on a balloon because it adds a visual impact that is memorable, thus creating a “wow factor”.
Depending on how you configure the mouth you can change the personality and doing this gives the capability to make it a whimsical instead of menacing face.
