Setting the Scene

Posted May 2014

Finding the Beauty in Life. Appreciating the Beauty that is here. That's how I felt at this recent Marriage Proposal that I handled recently. The man who hired me to surprise his intended with this Caricature ~ also arranged the setting. On the Gazebo in a local Park.

He had arranged to bring his intended for a beautiful walk on a beautiful day. And I was to be there set up as though I just happened to be out there also enjoying the beauty of the day. But actually ready with the Proposal Caricature and also a Caricature of their parents. So I could pretend to draw them on this beautiful day and..........

The joy of the moment. If that's the way I felt, I could just imagine how the Couple felt. When I looked out of the Gazebo toward the trees, I saw the two pink blossoming trees felt like the Couple that was in love. The scene felt like it was stepping towards the Gazebo, and I could almost envision those solid rocks to spell out Love. But we didn't need the words. We had the feeling.

The Reference Pictures from which I drew the Caricatures:

I had the opportunity to draw some adorable girls at a recent event. They weren't sure of what to expect, so I could Feel their amazed joy when I handed them their Caricature. Turning into such ladies. Such a pleasure.

Real Good Doodling ~ I'm Flying

Posted May 2014

Doodling. That's where it's at. I know enough for sure. And doodling is where I make it all work.

Picked up a marker, just a quick idea while watching a movie. And this is what I came up with:

It's okay. Good start, but then I kinda lost it. Started being thrilled with my lines, commending myself, and.... well, got trite ending. I had gotten out of the zone.

So I turned the paper over. Yes. Now an even better start. And I stayed loose throughout the whole picture. Yes. I am looking forward to tonight's job. I will be drawing at a big Prom in less than 24-hours from now.

Good Night for now.

Grown Up Glitter Tattoos

Posted May 2014

I feel so glad that I finally have a chance to put up a few of my Freehand Glitter Tattoos.

I hope this shows how my Freehand Glitter Tattoos can actually Fit an area. Any area.

So it's not just a little Thing stuck on somewhere. Mine are made to Fit each individual Body. So they really do look Glamorous.

I wish you could have seen how the woman in the 3rd picture absolutely Changed her whole countenance. Her attitude was uplifted when she saw herself with the surprisingly beautiful Glitter Tattoo. I feel like my Glitter Tattoos remind even Grown-Ups about the Joy they can feel from Beauty. The Freehand Glitter Tattoos are just so so Beautiful! I wish my Photos could show just how beautiful, but you have to see them in person.
