The Unhappy Mermaid

Posted Sep 2018

Darn it. I have to go to sleep already. So I can handle tomorrow's Event. But I want to Draw Draw Draw. Still on Mermaids because it is required for tomorrow's Party.

This time I decided to forego the upper body. Just go right into the Tail. Then I decided to keep it black and white. A black and white mermaid.

and how about sticking this Unhappy Mermaid under the water altogether ~ unable to get where the sun is. I figure that could be a good reason why she's sad. Not that water is bad ~ but being Confined ~ unable to move out of your place ~ that could make a Mermaid sad.

I just wish I didn't let the sun shine through onto the bottom of her tail. I feel like that diluted the message. But that's how it is with direct unedited work ~ done with Markers and Color Sticks that canNot be erased. The immediacy of this approach is excellent for capturing action or emotion ~ It's just cooler than overly edited overly controlled pictures. But it also has a downside. Like in this case ~ the yellow. I wish I didn't put the yellow onto the bottom of the 'tail'.

and i feel happy because it's imperfect.

Mermaids and Mermen

Posted Sep 2018

I was only given ONE DAY'S NOTICE that I will be drawing the CARICATURES as Mermaids and Mermen at my next Event Egads.

Whenever something unusual is expected, I prefer to have time to play around with some ideas Before I get to the Event. So I started drawing ~ here in my Studio. You can see how I was struggling to come up with a "Manly" Tail is that even necessary? Anyway, after I get these tame drawings done, I might be able to Wow Wild (I hope) with those Tails. I hope I have time to develop my ideas

Party Artist

Posted Sep 2018

Being a Party Artist is not the same as just being an Artist. A Party Artist not only creates the Designs ~ She also has to do what her Client tells her.

As an Artist, of course I prefer Events where I am encouraged to create magnificent Designs fitting all sorts of body parts. But sometimes that isn't appropriate. In this case, my Client ~ who had ordered the Freehand Tattoos ~ wanted just a Simple little something ~ perhaps just on their hand ~ so they can feel real cool while they did other party activities. And the Party Room was kept Dark. So I came prepared to do What My Client wanted.

I brought small lights so I could see in just my little area. And I only offered Simple choices to the Guests. They had a great time. My Client had the Party of her dreams. And I feel confident that the Guests Enjoyed the Tattoos the next day(s ~ in the Sunshine) as well as during the Party.

Yes ~ I like to create magnificent designs. And I also like to fit in with the Party
