Delighting People

Posted Sep 2017

I love the Reactions I get to my Caricatures. My Pictures surprise people ~ I can feel their emotions to the experience the whole time I am entertaining.

I just realized that that's probably why people choose to be Entertainers. It's an intense connection with our audience.

It's Amazing that Anyone can Draw a Good Caricature

Posted Sep 2017

I took these photos while practicing FACEPAINTING for an Upcoming Nickelodeon Event. I'm only supposed to paint Spongebob and Spongebob Characters. Intrigued by the various emotions that the same UNCHANGING Face portrayed. The exact same FACE PAINTING in each photo. I only painted it Once here. By the slightest angle of the head/neck, the different angle of the camera, and the movement of the eyeBalls. Only. That's all that changed in these photos.

Seeing that such Slight changes can make such a difference in the perceived emotion, I felt amazed that I can draw such good CARICATURES. Where Everything moves and changes. Mouth-moements, Eye-openings, movement of Cheeks, furrowed Foreheads, Wrinkles, Winking, Squinting.....

It's like making a baby. If we had to think about the details of every body part that a baby needs, we would probably miss a Lot. Creation ~ it's out of our hands. An Artist has to be 'inspired'.

Colorizing

Posted Sep 2017

Just playing around with the picture I drew at a recent DIGITAL CARICATURE Party. Client had requested Black and White Pictures.

This morning, I went back into one of them and added some Color. So many different Options, so many different Choices we can play with:

Fun ~

About Alison's Digital Caricatures

Posted Sep 2017

My Agent posted the following description for my DIGITAL CARICATURE work. I feel like it really describes my interests in both the creating of the CARICATURES AND the skillful use of the STATE OF THE ART TOOLS:

Already quite skilled at creating Fun CARICATURES on Paper, Alison completely immersed herself with the DIGITAL DRAWING TOOLS as soon as IPADs came out around 2010. It's thrilling to see her pick up different Brushes on different Layers for different Effects.

Alison's DIGITAL CARICATURES go beyond her already Fantastic Pen-on-Paper CARICATURES. Hire Alison to see Cutting Edge DIGITAL ARTWORK.

Corporate Events, Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvot, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Holiday Parties, Office Parties, and more. Whatever you're Celebrating, Alison's DIGITAL CARICATURES add UpScale Up-to-Date Entertainment.

*Note: Never happened, but in the Unlikely event of Technology failure at a DIGITAL Event, Artist will be prepared to Draw 'Basically Black/White' Caricatures on Blank 8.5" x 11" Heavy Paper Instead. If this happens, the price would be 1/3 the Digital Price.
