Black and White Party

Posted Dec 2008

Sometimes I'm asked to draw very fast and skip the color - to draw as many people as possible in a large party.

Here are some samples of that. Even though I love Color, I also like the pace of Black/White. Person, person, person, next!

CNN

Posted Dec 2008

Here's a quote, something I wrote on this blog. From September 27th.

"Makes me feel like I should be going in to something else - like cartoons. But we can get so scattered. I'm happily busy round the clock doing Caricatures, Face-Painting, and Balloons. Sometimes other work when it just lands at my doorstep."

I just came across this entry. And I realized that I just had one of those times. One of those times when I ended up 'doing something else'.

A producer from CNN recently asked me to make a small black/white 'Caricature' of him and his boss. He described the story of his boss telling him a story about using graphics in the olden days. Not the writer, I suggested ideas a few ideas for him.

But he had his own ideas, so I drew what He wanted.

Here's his response:
"The event we were at was CNN Heroes: 2008.
Maybe we could make that the title of the piece or incorporate it in the sketch.
Let's go with:
Boss ' In Providence we used cartoons for graphics.
Me ' Funny, I just use them to kiss up."





Here's the picture I came up with based on his photos. His ideas. The woman in the magazine was standing next to my client in his photo. [thumb "cnn.jpg" size="medium" /] This was a little outside my box. Outside of the things I usually do. As I wrote: "other work when it just lands at my doorstep."

Neon Colors

Posted Dec 2008

I photographed that picture that I was writing about again - the one that didn't pick up the neon-orange in my blog entry of November 20, 2008. This time I used my digital camera - something extra that I don't usually carry around with me. Still didn't pick up the brightness of the color, but at least it's orange:
