The Same Artist drawing the Same Subject

Posted 3 days ago

the Same Artist with the Same Subject ~ Funny how the artwork can have a completely different flavor under different circumstances. Tonight I drew a different Caricature based on the photo in the previous post.

In tonight's Caricature, I wasn't concerned with pleasing anyone. I was on my own, just applying what I was recently studying. Just for fun. Developing a little more form.

But in the Gift Caricature that I originally drew with a whole Scene, I was giving my Client what she said she wanted.

Direct Approach for Gift Caricature

Posted 3 days ago

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

New Style

Posted May 2019

I feel so excited! A new Style of Caricature for me. Using Run-On Lines to tell the Short Story.

Took me a lot more effort than it looks, so I'm not ready to use this style at Parties. But I feel like it will help my Party approach ~ because it might get me accustomed to seeing more than one attribute at a time.

Tonight was the first time I drew like this. I'm hoping that Clients will give me the go-ahead to draw like this when they order Gift Caricatures or Illustrations that I draw on my own time in the Studio. Oh I wish.
