Keep that Pen Moving

Posted 15 days ago

It's the approach. Instead of a super-controlled fearful approach to Drawing, a Professional CARICATURIST has to keep that marker Moving. Calmly ~ like a Professional Driver. A Professional Artist knows how to do her job. She has Confidence.

Here is a picture that I just made up before the first Guest arrived at a recent event. Usually more geometric, but even my Warm-Ups are interesting.

I can't stop

Posted Oct 2017

Even when I'm not working, I'm likely to spend my time looking at people, playing with what they look like. Sometimes I'll just do it in my mind. But sometimes, I'll be in a situation in which I can get down my ideas.

I drew these Caricatures at a NY Starbucks ~ just patiently waiting for a chance to see other customers' faces. (They were busy with their own work.)

I see faces everywhere. In Starbucks, on line at the Supermarket, while my Friends and Family talk with me..... Even while watching tv ~ the faces never stop. I see them in the clouds, in the tree-branches, in the shadows

Satisfying Line Quality

Posted Sep 2017

I was just playing around, and I drew these two CARICATURES. I like the Line Quality, so I am going to save them to use as Samples:

It's Amazing that Anyone can Draw a Good Caricature

Posted Sep 2017

I took these photos while practicing FACEPAINTING for an Upcoming Nickelodeon Event. I'm only supposed to paint Spongebob and Spongebob Characters. Intrigued by the various emotions that the same UNCHANGING Face portrayed. The exact same FACE PAINTING in each photo. I only painted it Once here. By the slightest angle of the head/neck, the different angle of the camera, and the movement of the eyeBalls. Only. That's all that changed in these photos.

Seeing that such Slight changes can make such a difference in the perceived emotion, I felt amazed that I can draw such good CARICATURES. Where Everything moves and changes. Mouth-moements, Eye-openings, movement of Cheeks, furrowed Foreheads, Wrinkles, Winking, Squinting.....

It's like making a baby. If we had to think about the details of every body part that a baby needs, we would probably miss a Lot. Creation ~ it's out of our hands. An Artist has to be 'inspired'.
