Designated Drivers

Posted Sep 2012

This was an interesting event. At a College in New Jersey. What I think was happening was that the students were being introduced to the club of people who wear red shirts. Because these people would show up at events and parties just to be designated drivers (people who hadn't been drinking alcohol).

What we do is What we get.

Personality as much as Physical Attributes

Posted Sep 2012

Even in just the few minutes that I'm drawing a Guest, I can sometimes see their Personalities as well as their Physical attributes ~ especially when dealing with children. They can be so 'raw', so 'unadulterated', so 'real'. Here are some of the pictures I drew at a recent Children's Party. This one was a Communion. I felt especially happy with my pictures because I felt like I could even see their Personalities in how they approached the Party Activity.

I particularly liked this group because the kids were real kids, and the adults seemed so direct and so appreciative. Honestly polite.

I am a Photo Opportunity

Posted Sep 2012

Funny, but on the very same day that the Engagement couple had a professional Photographer focused on our small group (just the couple, me, and the photographer), I also had a whole Parade of a Photography Club pass by. This was while I was set up just waiting for my client to come by.

Many of the Photographers in that club chose to take pictures of me. One of them even emailed me his picture. Here it is. By William Hughes. He seemed like an Artist of Note too. What an amazing world. Full of so much Talent.

Don't hide your Talent in the ground. Let it see the light. Let it grow.
