Tame and Exaggerated Versions of the Same Prom Girls

Posted Jan 2019

Hi! Exercising switching between Tame and Exaggerated Caricatures tonight. I used some Prom pictures that I found on the web as references.

I did very well with the switching tonight. I had a good feel for both approaches. But I did all the Tame Caricatures first. And Then I did all the Exaggerated Caricatures. Some day perhaps I will practice switching back and forth each time.

Exercising the Switch

Posted Jan 2019

It feels useful to be able to Switch back and forth between my Tame Caricature approach and my Exaggerated Caricature approach at Events. There are several reasons why this ability comes up ~ so I don't want to be limited by my mood.

I usually draw in my Exaggerated style ~ because that energizes and attracts Guests at Events. Not boring ~ we never know what we're going to get until it comes out. So I figured I would practice my Tame style tonight ~ something I usually only do if I have to.

The first one I drew ~ the curly-haired girl wearing shorts ~ felt fine. And the 2nd 2 were okay too. But the last one ~ ugh. I've seen other artists handle whole Parties with crap like that ~ but it would just send me right to the dessert table, if you know what I mean. I would not want to be drawing like that at Events.

So I switched to my Exaggerated style for that one. Much better. But I was only reacting to the Non-Tameness of it. I could have done even better if I remembered to feel some of the other aspects of my Tame approach. Tired ~ middle of the night ~ but I feel like I know one more thing to try when I'm making the Change from Tame to Exaggerated

Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Party

Posted Jan 2019

Just by adding a Professional Party Artist to the mix ~ you've not only given your Guests something Unique, but you've also given them a 'Conversation Starter' aaaannnnd a boost that will encourage them to 'Remember Your Celebration even After they leave the Party. Sometimes even Years After your Party. Each Party is Unique ~ The type of Experience you offer Your Guests depends on which Images you offer. Just like you can choose a Pizza Party Or an Elegant Dinner Party, you can also choose Fun CARICATURES Or Insightful CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES, etc. It's more internalized by the Guests when the Party Image becomes part of their own image. They can feel like an integral part of the Party that You Designed.

CARICATURES

DIGITAL CARICATURES

FACE PAINTING

TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS (including Freehand Glitter Tattoos)

BALLOONS

CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES

FASHION SKETCHES

CARICATURES and DIGITAL CARICATURES and FASHION SKETCHES and CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES all go home with Your Guests as Party Favors. They are frequently hung on the Wall in your Friends' Homes. Your Guests will probably remember ~ for as long as the picture is part of their Every-Day awareness ~ what they were Celebrating when they got it. And when you hire your Party Art, you can even order a logo to be included for a small extra charge. That's something like:

had fun at
(Name)'s Party

(Name)'s Birthday Party
Date

fine art from
(Name)'s Party

The BALLOONS ~ so much a part of a Party ~ well, they don't last as long. But when they're created On the Spot ~ During the Party ~ it's so much more interactive than just putting up a few BALLOONS. When the BALLOONS are created right At the Party, the Guests will feel like they're more than just decorations. Your Guests will feel like they are holding Party in their hands. And afterwards ~ we are intrigued to ask people where they've been if we see them walking home with the Party Balloons. Which, well, they only last as long as they will last. Here are some Samples of Alison's BALLOONS:




FACE PAINTING ~ Oh so Special when it's done right. You Guests can feel oh so Special when they're 'transformed' with the Power of their own images. Which can last all day (or until they decide to wash them off ~ Alison's FACE PAINTING washes off easily with soap and water). Here are some Samples of Alison's FACE PAINTINGS:




TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS (including Freehand Digital Tattoos) ~ Oh ~ you can't imagine how Glamorous and Special you can feel with one of these magnificent decorations until you've had a Real one done. They rest on the Surface of the skin, and can last about a week ~ lingering joy from Your Event every time your Guests notice their very own TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS. An experience they're not likely to have any other time. Alison's TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS look great while they're At the Party. And Your Guests can be blown away by the Wow when they see them the next day Out in the Sun! Your Party is the Special One. Here are some Samples of Alison's TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS:
