Awesome

Posted Dec 2012

Why do I let some people drive me crazy ~ put a straight-jacket on me ~ ~ ~ I know what I'm doing. I handle more Parties each month than some people even Go to in their whole lives ~

Not a professional Photographer, I tried to snap snap snap some pictures real fast to show the sort of reactions that I frequently get when my client gives me carte-blanche to handle the Party Caricatures the way I know how to. This lovely woman was so Happy ~ This is her reaction to her own Caricature. And she watched me draw several others repeating over and over "You're awesome" to me. Caricatures. Exaggeration. Party Fun. The guests were Enjoying the Party activity:

If you want Caricatures, get Caricatures ~ They are meant for Parties. If you want Portraits, get the real thing ~ something that even took Rembrandt months to create. Don't ask for 2nd-rate Portraits to be drawn at Party-time.

Pedaling Backwards

Posted Dec 2012

Oh ~ usually I try to exaggerate the already exaggerated Caricature ~ to see how far I can take it. But tonight I felt like toning down the already tame Caricature ~ to see what happens if I fill-in-the-blanks. Sure is easier on my psyche ~ But not as much Fun.

I used a recent Party post for reference pictures. Just relaxing on my time off, I used old markers and small Computer paper here. So I didn't feel like drawing small enough to fit in all three people on one of the pages.

It feels so clear to me that more exaggerated pictures are better. But that's just my opinion. What do you think?
