Happy World

Posted 16 days ago

I remember this Long Very Happy Day. In Manhattan. Ending with drawing Digital Caricatures at a Corporate Event. I like that.

Here's one of them:

What is Art ?

Posted 18 days ago

Sometimes it's just easier for me to draw basic Caricatures. Not especially exciting, but people are thrilled with them anyway. It's what they expect.

Doesn't create an exciting stir, well, actually it does, but i don't understand why. I don't understand that excitement about them since it's easy for me. I guess people are just impressed to see that some people can really see and draw. They love to see pictures of themselves that are done Right.

I drew this Simple Caricature based on a photo of a man I recently drew Very Exaggerated at a Party.

I feel like the exaggerated CARICATURE I drew at the Party is Real Art. My vision can only be mine, and it involves really interacting with what I see.

I feel like this new drawing that I made on Purple Paper today is a Craft. It's something satisfying that I know how to do.

Ready for Any Type of Party

Posted 19 days ago

Caricature Event coming up for this Weekend ~ at a loud dark Bowling Alley in the Afternoon. So I figure I'll be drawing mostly Children? Just a guess ~ I still wasn't told what Type of Party it will be.

To practice, to warm up, I just drew the linework based on reference photos of Children that I found on the web. To be in the groove.

then I studied simple Shading ~ assembly-line-style. Just putting the shading onto the finished Caricatures.

Of course, I discovered some things by doing this. The first is that lol ~ the reason I don't have the pretty Burnt Sienna Colorstick with my Gig Supplies is because they're all I have in my leftover scraps that I keep in my office. (but I'm not going to change that ~ the soft brown that I keep for my gigs is more useful.)

Then.... less is more. Unless I'm drawing something Dark. And maybe I'll bring along the smooth (lightweight) paper for tomorrow's Event ~ for smoother shading. But I'll also carry these regular heavier papers because the lightweight paper felt too flimsy for me the last time I used it At a Party . and Never color in the whole section between eye and eyebrow. That could make for quicker production as Parties.
