Defensive Driving Class

Posted Apr 2018

I'm glad I took the Defensive Driving Class today. I like to keep on top of things ~ I like to stay Safe ~ I drive All Over to my Gigs.

But egads ~ I was in School All Day! Really saps the drive out of you. I felt a little better if I kept my pen moving. Including some Quick CARICATURES of my Classmates in the margins of my Book.

Perfecting my Artwork

Posted Apr 2018

Perfecting my Artwork. Determined to figure out how to draw this unique 'Mouth' (from an old photo here on this blog). There was a Lot to consider. In particular, this one really needed the Shading Above and Below the "Lips". And the squared-off corners.

When I study things like this, I find it has a positive influence on my Party Performances. Never a dull moment ~

In My Own Style

Posted Apr 2018

Confidence. Drawing My Own Way. I Am Back!

The way I draw CARICATURES is Naturally Cool. After doing my Line-Quality-Warm-Ups ~ like the ones I sell at https://www.artpal.com/?s=Gelbman&f_ss=1 ~ I DRAW WHATEVER I LIKE ~ IN WHATEVER ORDER I AM IMPRESSED. Sometimes with a Predraw, Sometimes not. It's whatever I feel like doing. I draw this way to quickly describe my ideas.

Professional Quality comes from my Own Style that has developed by Drawing Thousands of Caricatures. I have to Dance with my Own Body, Sing with my Own Voice, and Draw with my Own Style.

I drew these Caricatures using some Photos from this Blog as References. I did Not look at the Caricatures that I drew at the Events. I just used the Photos so I could loosen up and Enjoy Drawing today.

I'll post them with the Reference pictures tomorrow.
