through rain or snow or sleet or hail

Posted Feb 2011

I had to take some photos of the snow as I went to my gig last Saturday. First, umm, do I leave my house? I photographed the house before I went away:

Then, took some photos on the long ride out to the Hamptons. I hope I get a chance to post the photos of the great pictures I drew at the 9-year-old's party.

I'm so glad I got myself out there, so glad I don't use weather as an excuse to miss out on my life. Such interesting people. And it was in the coziest house - felt almost country out there, but classier of course.

Happy Customer

Posted Feb 2011

I really appreciate my clients. They make me feel so appreciated - giving me tips at their parties, calling with sincere appreciation....

This lovely woman made the effort to photograph the Studio Caricature I had mailed to her. The photo came out a little blurry, but I was still so happy to get it. They seem more 'alive' to me, somehow. Makes me feel like I'm really part of their joy with the little part I can play. My client emailed me this photo and wrote "He luved it. Thanx Alison!"

Tame? Maybe. Maybe Not.

This was a fun Studio Caricature. If you heard the client's instructions, you'd understand how I really did everything she wanted....

almost overnight. Picture was ordered at the last minute. She wanted it done right away. I prefer at least one week per face for Studio work, but if the customer doesn't allow.....

This one, rush-order, but so pleasant. It just flowed right out of me:
