Staff Party

September 1st, 2014

I felt like these people really liked being at work. Apparently, it is good for companies to foster employee inclusion for everyone who works there.

What was That?

August 27th, 2014

He flashed by me so quickly. A happy little boy all excited with the Big Party. Dark Room. Flashing Lights. And his Parents wanted all 3 to be in one picture.

I can only do what I can do. If I barely see the boy, I can only guess at what he looked like. Now that I can see the pictures “morning after” I feel like I did pretty well with my guess.

That’s the satisfaction of being a Party Artist. It’s more than drawing good pictures. It’s drawing them out in the world in Real Life Situations.

Family Harmony

August 26th, 2014

Look at the unique Reaction that this Family had when they saw the Caricature that I drew. Most intriguing ~ It felt like they were Dancing without Music. Perfectly in sync with each other.

I caught it a little bit in these Photos. You can see how their arms are In at the same moment, and their arms spread Out at the same moment. Done naturally. As though there was one brain affecting both sets of arms

A Caricature Artist Designs Fun Murals

August 26th, 2014

What a fun lady. She just got married, just got her first little apartment, and wanted to have murals painted all over the place so they could really ‘own’ their own space. We discussed her specific ideas, and I tried out the acrylic paints that I like to use ~ so we would feel sure that it would work ~ before I got started on my client’s huge projects.

I was just going to make a little mark in an out-of-the-way corner of the room, but my client gave me the go-ahead when I said that it’s fun to play with the paint strokes. So I freely let the paint flow-and-move as I made this little sample in the corner of the room. My client even titled it. She called it “The Corner of my Eye”. Isn’t that cute?

I especially like when I’m surprised by my reflection in a photo.

They poured Ice Water on their Heads in support of ALS !

August 21st, 2014

I don’t know how this got started, but people have been pouring Ice Water on their heads to raise awareness or funds for fighting ALS, a very serious disease.

So here I was, hired to draw Caricatures at this Block Party, when they started doing that right behind me. It was all I could do to keep my attention on my drawings (I set up my area in such a way that our Guests could see the Ice-Water activity. That means that my back was to it. So I could see the person I was drawing.)

Exciting. I imagine it’s quite an experience.

A Special Day, here are some of the pictures that I drew:
