Thank You for The #Techies

September 15th, 2014

Techies ~ is that the proper way to refer to people who do what you do?

Techies ~ is that what they call them? Those fantastic people who keep our Computers running?

I was just saved (once again) by my own guy. He was in Texas, but a quick email, and I had the answer of how to get rid of a program that wouldn’t stop popping up on my Computer. I had thought of him when I drew this Caricature of A DIFFERENT TECHIE at a recent NYC event. (My guy is in Texas)

I was drawing for a Big Company right near Penn Station. They hired me to draw at their ‘Health Fair’ event. One of the adorable employees that sat down for his Caricature, had a slight interruption. He quickly gave his associate the solution. When he apologized for the interruption, he said that he’s always working. He said that they always need help with something.
Even though this was a time-off event.

I asked him what he did. He explained something much like my own Computer guy (the one that helped me this morning even though he was in Texas today) does. Something like “I keep their Computer programs working.” He said that it’s crazy-busy because he is THE ONLY ONE that handles all their big offices here in NYC, Chicago, and a few other places all over the country. Wow. Amazing how much we need those guys. Big Companies, Banks, and Governments rely on these overworked Geniuses as much as I do. As most people with Computers do.

I’m so fortunate to have a Professional Techie of my own. I feel so grateful that I just wanted to take this opportunity to say “Let’s Hear It For the Techies! Let’s Show Them Our Appreciation!”

Purple Paper

September 15th, 2014

Back again talking on the phone with my Dear Brother.

This time I was doodling on a paper that had been leftover from an event in which my client ordered preprinted papers. I make extras when I do this ~ so I wouldn’t run out during the event. But then I can only use the paper for my own doodling. I particularly love the way the Colors show up on the Purple Paper:

Dear Keni

My Loving Brother is dealing with some very difficult issues right now. He seriously needs to make some money. If only people would buy his music at dspacer.com ~ It feels like a life and death situation for him already. Seriously.

My pen was doodling while we were just talking on the phone.
Here’s what I drew:

I Think I Did a Good Job ~

September 8th, 2014

I Think I Did a Good Job ~
But how am I to know? Especially when the guests come to me already Face-Painted (by someone else), and I have to try to figure out what they look like underneath it.

I do Face Painting as well as Caricatures, but THIS IS NOT MY FACE PAINTING.
IT’S ONLY MY CARICATURES. If I had been intrigued by the other Artist’s face painting, I might have chosen to incorporate it into my Caricature. But since this is so not my style of face-painting, I tried to see through it. You can see Samples of My Face Painting at facepaintingexpress.blogspot.com

This one is a Fashion Sketch that I drew at a previous event.
Posting it for my friend who wanted to see what I was talking about.
The elongation that is usually used in a Fashion Sketch.
