The Big Thing This Year

Posted Dec 2015

Digital Caricatures are all the rage. I've been called more and more for them this Year. Happy New Year!

Has a completely different energy at the Party.
When I'm drawing Caricatures on Paper, there's more laughter and hoo-hah. More wild.
But when I'm drawing Digital Caricatures on my IPad, it's more laid back. More relaxing for both the Guests as well as for the Artist.

It's good to know that when you're planning your Party. Like ~ what sort of experience to you want to create for your Guests ~ Wild and Loud? Then order Caricatures that are drawn directly onto Large Paper.

Relaxed and Modern? Then order Digital Caricatures ~ which are drawn on the IPad and then printed up right at the Party onto Super Glossy Paper.

Here are Samples of some of the Digital Caricatures that I created at this year's Thanksgiving Day Party. As usual, I spent Thanksgiving morning drawing at an Upscale Event that was overlooking the Macy Day Parade.

How Sweet

Posted Dec 2015

How expressive this little girl was.
From the moment she sat down,
holding on to that dolly
straight through to her Reaction to her Caricature
at which time she almost forgot about the dolly for a moment.

She did a lot of her speaking by using her body actions.
Remarkable to watch.
Practically all children are remarkable Actresses (Actors),
but I felt like this girls natural expressions were Academy Award material.
In a good way ~ She wasn't acting, meaning faking. She was expressing. For real.

Life is so interesting.

Digital Linework

Posted Nov 2015

I practiced making Digital Caricatures here.
I particularly like how all Colors of Linework look with my IPad style.

Still looking for speed though ~ the last picture here with Just the Linework got done in 1/3 the time of each one of the other pictures here.
I miss the fantastic impact I can achieve with the IPad, but some faces (like this one) might really be just fine as just linework.
I feel like it's important for me to know all sorts of things in order to please many different Party Clients.

High School is really Intense

Posted Nov 2015

Oh My Goodness ~ I just had quite an intense experience.

I had grabbed my High School Yearbook figuring I could Caricature face after face to get ready for this week's Digital Event. Quickly chose my first image ~ at first I actually thought it was a Guy. But as soon as I started drawing, I realized that it was one of my closest Girl friends from back then.

Back then, I thought she was just playing ~ But now I can see how Very Intense it all was for her. I feel overwhelmed. And the emotional aspect caused me to spend too long on this Caricature. Oh. I'll try it again tomorrow. To quickly draw one after the other.
