Periodontist

Posted 5 days ago

I had to see the Periodontist. I drew this Caricature of what I saw.

The Dentist really loved the Caricature that I drew of the Periodontist. I guess she wanted to give me something. Because she quickly grabbed a new magazine and said it was for me.

Driving on to the gym, Oh! What's this? Lots of lights came on my dashboard. Main message blinking at me said "FDC System Failed." I parked the car, turned it off, and phoned the car dealer. "Bring it right in" the receptionist said.

okaaaay. ummmm.... scrap the gym. I'm on my way to the car dealer.

I turned the car back on. No message. No idiot-lights. I drove a few minutes Towards the car dealer, pulled over to park, and turned off the car.

I grabbed the Dentist's Magazine ~ a high quality magaine ~ it was full of very clear faces. I Quickly drew one. A minute of two without predraw.

Started up the car again. Again no nasty messages. Drove a few more minutes, pulled over, phoned the Car Dealer, and got the green light to go back to the gym.

I had an excellent Workout.

Rough Art

Posted 15 days ago

Just for fun ~ Just because I felt like using my Fresco app ~ I made a Digital Caricature tonight. Based on photos that I found online.

I guess I could have taken it further, but I just like the roughness of it:

Then, still keeping it rough, but with a Lot more detail, I drew a Caricature of an older Melanie Griffith. I love this Painting app:

And here's one that is not so rough. But I just can't stop Painting these Digital Caricatures. This one is based on a photo that I found online of an older Michael Douglas. I guess I started getting in to Celebrity Photos. Oh I do hope someone orders a Digitally Painted Gift Caricature soon.

The Same Artist drawing the Same Subject

Posted Jul 2019

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 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
