Help ~ I Can't Stop Drawing

Posted Apr 2016

Here it is ~ the middle of the night, and I can't stop drawing Caricatures. Not a job ~ just for myself. I use the reference photos here on my blog. Without looking at the Fun Caricatures that I had originally drawn at my jobs.

On my time off, I usually draw in Color. I usually focus on developing wild exaggerations. But this time I was focusing on Speed and Black/White Line Drawings. It feels so good. Sometimes, I just used one marker for the whole drawing. No fuss. Just drawing.

Train Sightings

Posted Apr 2016

When I'm in Manhattan, it's not unusual that I'll have wait-time in Subway Stations and at the Long Island Railroad. So I draw Caricatures to entertain myself. Of course, I can't just look right at people in this situation, so I just grab a quick glance here and there.

I did most of these with only one marker. In the waiting room at the LIRR. And on the train ride home.

I enjoy my time off. No pressure.

Still Getting Ready

Posted Apr 2016

Still dreaming about the Group Caricature coming up. This time I drew a Group Picture on just a little sheet of Computer Paper that I have here. Based on a wild picture that I found on the Web.

Group Caricature coming up

Posted Apr 2016

I was hired to draw 8 people on one large Paper at a Bridal Shower. Haven't done that in a while, so I decided to practice it tonight.

I picked a few photos at random from my blog ~ just the first few photos I came across that might look like they're the same age as the women that I will be drawing at the Shower.

Didn't finish this picture, but I feel confident that I will be able to handle the event.
