Fashion Sketches

Posted Oct 2008

I did Fashion Sketches at a Sweet 16 this week. I've been wanting to make a page at this website to let people know that I do this also, but I haven't gotten up to it for years. The only people who hire me for Fashion Sketches are the people who've seen me do this elsewhere. It's so much fun! A different focus, a different type of picture.

Still don't have time to make a new page. If you'd like Fashion Sketches instead of Caricatures, just let me know when you ask about my availability. I'd enjoy doing them as often as I do Caricatures. It's all good. Whatever you want.

So here are some on-site photos of pictures I drew at a party and one sample that I made here alone here in my Studio. Maybe you can get an idea of the style and flow of my pictures even though you won't be able to see any details here. I think I should make a New Year's Resolution - in 2009 I will give attention to holding that camera still while photographing!

Political Candidates

Posted Oct 2008

In addition to all the parties I've been working, I've been doing a lot of Studio Caricatures too. Including the Political Scene - it's so expected that it's a Caricaturist's place ~

Here's one where I tried not to sway the voters' opinions. A company that makes yummy Smoothies wanted to get people to vote for their favorite Smoothie - and it wasn't clear whether people would be voting for Drinks or Political Candidates. At first I thought I was making a banner for them:

But then I was told that it was for postcards. And the client had all sorts of changes requested. I preferred my own color choices, but of course I delivered what the client wanted. Both my original design and this new design - they both have something different that's good about them:

I was very fortunate when I was doing the Robeks job. Because my web-designer was around, and he taught me some neat things with PhotoShop - such as how to use 'Color Burn' with the 'Brush Tool' (He actually did the Color on the post-card-sized Obamas). So now my PhotoShop skills go way beyond 'Paint Bucket'. And someday, maybe someday, a Waakum Tablet (I hear the Cintiqs are fun.)

And here are 2 recent gifts created from the information that my client gave me about 2 men who were Retiring:

After Midnight

Middle of the night. And here I am Drawing as usual. Just from photos of people on the web. Here are a few that I just finished. I like the Artwork:
