Loops and Scribbles

Posted 6 days ago

I never know where my studies will take me. Tonight I sat down to draw Lines with my Markers (as usual). But I noticed my Color Sticks here ~ Perhaps it would be a good idea to draw (wide-line) Shapes with Those instead.

I tried different Pressures. Nope.

I tried different Papers. Nope Nope.

Maybe I should stop using the Side of the stick. Maybe I should Color Color Color real fast with the Point of the stick. Well.... a little better.... a little smoother...... but I cuts into my mojo.

Perhaps I should use those Artist Chalks that I bought many years ago, but never used. No ~ I still feel like those add to the Show because people don't usually Color with their Gloved Fingers ~ but the actual picture comes out looking Wishy-Washy and it can get on people's Clothing.

Back to the Color Sticks. Perhaps there's a Colorless Blender around here ~ like I'd have time to do That at a Party. But no ~ I was never into that. So I tried to smooth the Color with a Wax Candle. That didn't work. Then ~ hahaha ~ I decided to just make Scribbles of Color with the Point of the Color Sticks (and a Few Small Side-Swipes) ~ and I developed this Playful Color Application. Looks Happy.

What a Surprise. As usual, I don't know where my studies will take me.

I don't see myself using this regularly at Events, but I just Might swing into it once in a while. Makes a Unique and Happy Caricature.

Oooh ~ almost 3 am ~ I'm feeling Loopy (Tired)

Choose Happiness

Posted 6 days ago

Here are photos of a few of the Caricatures that I drew at a recent Event. A Family Event for people who are connected with someone who has Cerebral Palsy. A very unfortunate condition ~ I don't think that most people hope to be in that situation. But I feel impressed with the Festive atmosphere. I've drawn Caricatures at this Event several times already (comes up once a year), and I feel like the people look forward to it. I feel like they are happy to be there.

I hope I remember about this if much smaller issues bring me down. I hope I always choose Happiness

Loosening Up

Posted 6 days ago

I've been handling FACE PAINTING Events for the past week. Gotta get back into CARICATURES for tomorrow's Event.

So I used a photo from a previous event as Reference, and I drew it again now. Just to loosen up and get back into CARICATURING. So I picked up a scrap paper (wrong colored paper for This CARICATURE), and an old marker that I would never use at an actual Event, and I drew this picture. I love it. I'm back in my Zone
