If the Artwork doesn't please the Artist

Posted 2 days ago

Just messing around here while watching YouTubes. Drawing Caricatures as usual. Both of them drawn withOut a predraw, but one of them didn't come out looking Professional at all.

Hmmmm. What could I do if something like this ever happened at a Gig? I tried going back into it ~ to turn it into a Picture. I only used Marker and a Little Spot of Color ~ like in the Good Caricature that I drew today. Ummmm.... Nope. So I just added Lines ~ that made it look Scary.

I gave up on that Picture. I gave up on that piece of Paper. And I Quickly drew the last Caricature that I'm posting here today. I allowed myself a Little Bit of a Predraw. Aaaah. That's good. I like that Picture. I like that Experience

Purim

Posted 3 days ago

I'm prepared to draw some Graffiti/Calligraphy Names at a Purim Party. That's when the Guest tells me his/her name as well as which Purim Character Style they want.

Here are my Samples. Can you tell which one is Queen Esther? Which one is Mordechai? King Achashverot? Vashti? Haman?

Downtime

Posted 7 days ago

During this Party, the Guest's attention was turned to the Video Presentation while I was still supposed to be drawing Caricatures. That's not an unusual thing to happen ~ so many important things go on during a Party. But I'm there to Draw.

Some of that other stuff can slow me down, but I keep on keepin on. Even like this time, when the room suddenly got dark. It's a good chance to draw some candid expressions.

Parties Feel Different

Posted 28 days ago

I still do get some in-person Party work these days. I arrive with my regular Party spirit. Energy. Ready for a Party! But the Parties feel different. The People aren't sure about what they can do. Because of the Corona Virus situation.

We had a great time ~ As usual, I get some great reactions to my Party Caricatures. But sometimes it feels like a swimming pool in a desert. What's happening to people? I wonder most about the people who don't even get out to these small Parties. What will happen to them? Will they remember how to Celebrate? Will they remember this type of Shared Fun?
