Warming Up for Speed Caricatures

Posted Apr 2017

Egads ~ Last night I was trying out some ideas for Speeding Up my Party CARICATURES ~ This is what my Office looked like when I woke up this morning.

I pushed it aside and managed to get to my desk.

My Shopping List

Posted Mar 2017

You might wonder why I am posting this scribbled Shopping List on my CARICATURE Website. It's to remind myself how Easy it is to draw a Good CARICATURE.

I drew it while waiting for the clerk in the Seafood Department to prepare the Porgy Fish I had chosen for dinner. No unused paper to entertain myself. Just a dried up leftover marker. No posing.

Just the answers. Easy. It's from this Point that I can create any type of Finished Product. Quick Cacs? Next! Or Color it in and add a little Shading? Perhaps execute it with more graceful Lines. Or add a border? A body/hobby? A big Fish!

Or I could even take this idea through a major production in the Studio. I could model it with Pastels. Or alla prima Oil Painting. Or a layered Oil Painting. I could put him in a Scene. And Office. A Desk. A Library. Or more appropriately ~ a Brightly Colored Fish Market!

But first it has to Start Here. With the Vision. The CARICATURE.

Getting into Gear

Posted Feb 2017

It's a good idea to practice before a gig if you haven't drawn Party Caricatures in over a Week. Here are my practices ~ done before going to a 40th Surprise Party. I feel confident now. Psyched. And looking forward to it!
