Dom DeLouise

Posted Mar 2009

I recently made some more drawings for the East Coast Brown Derby Restaurant. Some of their requests are more famous than others. In this batch, I recognized Dom DeLouise.

They like the Caricatures to be rather tame - more like the old-style Caricatures. So this is what I drew - along with the Reference Photos that they provided for me:

Small Pictures

Posted Mar 2009

I finally figured out how very small I'd have to start my drawing in order to exaggerate consistently on the Small-Size Option. Some of the really good photos from this party came out too fuzzy. Still, I'm glad I got plenty to show:

The Bitter End

Posted Mar 2009

I'm getting so good at this Career. Drawing, Getting around...... I even thought the drive all the way down NYC was okay on the day that I took these photos. I had driven from my Caricature gig in the Bronx all the way down to the Bitter End in Soho - just to see the Arkhams. I barely noticed the NYC traffic.

The Bitter End - It's been around for a long time - Since the days of Light Shows. But how did this happen - When I tried to photograph the Arkhams with my new iphone, it still came out looking like a Light Show. Even though there wasn't a Light Show going on. And I certinaly don't have special speeds on the little iphone camera:

You would have thought that I had had enough drawing - just having worked a 3-hour party. The Arkhams energetic music managed to hold my interest. But I drifted off into just looking at some of the other bands that played that night. Here's a picture of a girl I drew:

And here's a picture of a bass that really held my interest. It was sooooo horizontal. And the strings were so noticeable:

Last Minute

Posted Mar 2009

Yeow. Client just came to the Studio. Brought me a deposit for TONIGHT.

So much to prepare. And she wants me to draw Outline-Only - because she wants to get as many pictures as possible in the given time.

I don't usually do Outline-Only - It feels more like cranking them out than doing Artwork. But it is an Option I offer.

So now - get ready to draw a lot of Boy Scouts. First I wanted to see what would happen if I choose a Yellow Outline - If Golden-Boy sits in front of me:

Good thing I practice first. I can see that that isn't a good idea. I had to increase the time on that picture by going back in with the black marker. The Yellow didn't show up.

Okay. I hope I stick to Black Outlines. Or Blue. Or Orange.....

But what if someone sits down who has dark skin - Here I'll try one in which I add just a little bit of Shading. Sometimes, you just can't stop with Just the outline:

And............... We're Off!
