Eureka

Posted May 2008

You're probably not going to think much of these 3 pictures that I want to post today - so I can remember them. But they are pivotal.

I had grabbed some scrap paper and quickly drew against some bumpy furniture (hence the horrible line-quality) just so I could remember what I had just thought of. It's The Answer to quicksketch 3/4-view Caricatures. It just bcame So Clear to me for that moment:

Mark Simon's Expressions Book

Posted May 2008

Beautiful weather today. Nice easy day for me - Face Painting in Central Park. Then I came home to this! I knew I gave Mark Simon permission to use the Artwork that I sent to him OVER A YEAR AGO, but I didn't know that I was going to see his fabulous book TODAY.

I found 3 of my pictures in it - between the pages of 114 and 117. It's so funny - He so protected MY copyright that even I couldn't lift the pictures from his book to put them here on my blog. And I'm too busy to start looking through a year's worth of pictures to find the originals here.

Here's some quotes telling about his book.

Quote: Facial Expressions - E-Book

I have been asked by artists around the world to sell a digital version of Facial Expressions that they can load onto their computers. Now it's here.

Facial Expressions Companion E-Book Volume 3 contains over 1,000 all new images, including over 60 works of art.

The first Facial Expressions book has been a best-seller since it came out two years ago. There is no better photo reference book on the market.

Facial Expressions Models

This edition also features a great new gallery, Age Progression. Now you can see how a face ages from being a baby and growing into an adult.

Galleries include:

Skull Gallery Expressions Gallery Age Progression Gallery Phonemes Gallery Hats & Headgear Gallery Leaning Gallery Pointing Gallery Extreme Close-Up Gallery Art Gallery

Happy Day. It's Fun to be an Artist.

Fashion Sketches for Prom

Posted May 2008

Fashion Sketches for Prom. Sweet 16. Corporate Event. Fashion Sketches for After-Prom. Store Event. Wedding. I feel so appreciated when I am drawing Fashion Sketches. The people are so pleasantly surprised. A new type of Party Activity which really focuses on the people at the Party. They got all dressed up. They want their Fashions to be noticed.

Here are 3 practice pieces that I just drew at the Airport. Getting ready because I'll be running to a Prom job as soon as I get back from this trip. Straight from the airport!

And here are some Samples that I drew a while back - when I designed this style:

And here are the original sketches from a long time ago when I was feeling my way for what would I draw for Fashion Sketches at an Event. It turned out to be such a good idea.

Too Heavy

Posted May 2008

I booked a last-minute gig for tomorrow. In the city.

So here I am, midl of the night, and doing prepwork. I use a different backpack when I travel by train than when I travel by car. So much to bring - it can get soooo heavy.

I just went through the time-off folder that I keep in the NYC gig-backpack. Taking out some pictures to make the backpack lighter for tomorrow. So many people I see. So many ideas I draw. But what to do with them all?

I love the web. I just picked a few - I can display them here:
