Direct Approach for Gift Caricature

Posted Jul 2019

Always exciting when I start on a Gift Caricature, a Studio piece. Because I'm not just filling in the blanks. That wouldn't be Artwork. it's a process ~ I don't know what it will involve until I do it.

This time, still exciting, I finally didn't try to reinvent the horse. I just designed the best way to express what my Client wanted to express: A kind, beloved School Nurse who was Retiring. My Client told me to draw the kind, beloved School Nurse with a Stethoscope and a Fun Uniform and a Generic Child. And to include the Name of the School. And she requested a Horizontal format ~ something I don't usually do. It was a quite fine experience for all of us.

Oh ~ and on the side, my Client also mentioned that she always called the Children "Bumble" ~ hence my black/yellow shirt on the Child

Scavenger Hunt

Posted Jul 2019

Happily drawing Caricatures of 12-year-old Girls today, when my hostess told me to take a break because they were going to have a Scavenger Hunt.

But I kept drawing. I made this scene of the girls as they started the Scavenger Hunt. Barely time to finish it before they were back again for their Caricatures

Just Happy People

Posted Jul 2019

Lol ~ Last minute Event ~ rush out there. Not even sure if I was handling a Community Event or a Birthday Party at a Community Center. But I felt Happy to see the People, and they were interested in the Caricatures that I drew. Here's one of them.

Then I redrew it at home. Not that there was anything wrong with the one at the Party. I just still felt like drawing, and I wanted some sort of reference to jump off of. I made some arbitrary changes just to make changes. And of course I spent more time on it at home than at the Party. It's what an Artist does.
