Noah Elkreif and Actualized Leo and Marie Dubuque

Posted Aug 2020

There I was, watching too many YouTubes, pen moving out of habit. So I drew Caricatures of the people that I was watching. Some of them were new people that I hadn't watched before, so I didn't notice their names. But I watched Noah Elkreif and Actualized Leo and Marie Dubuque lots of times before. So lol ~ when I went to post them here and I realized that I was watching someone new when I was watching the one that I thought was Marie Dubuque. I had just thought that I was looking at a younger version of her, an older YouTube, but now that I'm posting them I have a vague memory of it being someone else. Because I think I remember some other name ~ but it looked and sounded just like her.

Still Tapping Into Party

Posted Aug 2020

Things are opening up, but I'm still feeling the effects of this Covid-Pandemic. Less Parties per week ~ means that I still have more free-time. Time to notice that I'm not handling a Party today. Oh.

But even on days when I'm not going to a Party, I am able to tap into Party Attitude. I feel so fortunate that I have these photos here so I can re-live the Fun we always have when I am Entertaining at Parties.

No Longer a Problem

Posted Aug 2020

Here's a situation that hasN't been coming up lately. Actually quite a relief. I miss Facepainting. I like to do that. But I wouldn't do Facepainting during this Covid-Pandemic because it is Hands On. Most people know better than to even ask for that.

But back Before the Pandemic, it was not unusual for a Client to order Both Caricatures And Facepainting. That's Great if s/he arranges for the Caricatures First. The Facepainting can confuse what the Caricaturist is seeing.

Not quite so intense in these pictures - the facepainter was quite tame, but you can see some quite Transformational Facepaintings at my own blog, https://facepaintingexpress.blogspot.com/ .Sometimes a good facepainting can 'hide' what the person really looks like. Sort of an exaggerated use of make-up.

Looking through some pre-Covid Caricatures today, I came across a few that I drew after Someone Else facepainted these people. I can draw them, but it is more difficult to Caricature people who are already Facepainted. So I appreciate it that it hasn't been happening lately. People have been ordering Only the Caricatures now that the Covid-Pandemic is lightening up. I feel happy to Only Draw on Paper until it's more suitable to Paint on People.
