Childhood is Not easy

Posted 2 days ago

Pleased with the Caricature that I drew tonight. I applied what I was focusing on last night.

Picture of a beautiful young girl ~ reminds me Not to romanticize Childhood. Not that you can really tell Anything about a person's personality based on what s/he looks like, but just playing around here alone in my studio tonight. This picture reminded me of some of my own Summercamp Experiences. It was Not easy to be a child.

Note to Self

Posted 2 days ago

Good idea to shade eyeballs.

Sometimes it's appropriate to use more than one Color for skintone. Sometimes it's appropriate to use different pressures of only One Colorstick for skintone.

3 Good Events

Posted 3 days ago

So far, I have 3 Events booked for this week. None of them have extra things involved to complicate my Artwork. Just hired to 'Draw Caricatures'. Aaaahh.

One of them is a Wedding. One is an eleven-year-old-Girl's Dinner Party. One is for the Staff of a Bar.

To warm up, I drew one of each ~ from random photos that I found online. It was fun

Control Artwork?

Posted 7 days ago

In some ways, drawing Tame Caricatures at today's Event (as requested by my Client) was easier than having carte blanche. But in some ways, it was harder.

Even without my Client's instructions, sometimes I draw like this anyway. But it's hard to Force it. Hard to Control the Artwork.

A lot happens in 3 Hours. Here's one of the pictures that I drew. Along with this Guest's Reaction. Sometimes I would feel 'egged on' to draw Exaggerated Caricatures when my Audience started getting in to the small exaggerations that I was allowing into my Tame Caricatures. So I would feel conflicted ~ two different messages in my brain ~ I feel like it's more sure that I can easily get great pictures if I just let it happen. But I also feel thrilled that I was able to please my Client and his Guests
