A Blast from the Past

Posted Dec 2016

It's getting to be that time of year again. As usual, I'm getting excited. Looking around here, I came across this Caricature that I drew at a Holiday Party Last Year. Oh I hope I see this boy again.

Update: Once again, I was just hired to draw at the same Company Party for this year's Party. So that means that I probably will be able to draw this boy again..... Hmmmmm..... will be interesting

Individually Painted Mats

Posted Nov 2016

One of the Options that I give my Clients is that they can order cardboard Mats to 'frame' their Caricatures. Looks quite Upscale. And I usually paint and decorate most of them too. Super Special. Each one is Unique.

I really liked how this mat came out. Just some simple shapes. Ooooh ~ I always like them.

Huh?

Oh What to draw ~ What do draw? The face painting at this event -- somebody Else did the facepainting -- I just drew the Caricatures ~ wasn't good enough to transform the faces; But it is still difficult to figure out what to draw. Sometimes I include my own quick version of the face painting in the Caricature -- Sometimes I try to ignore the face painting part.

I feel glad to help the guests Enjoy the Party, but I do feel like the Caricatures should be drawn BEFORE the face painting. That's the way I always handle it when I'm hired to do Both at an event. I Draw Caricatures for a few hours, and THEN I take out the Face Painting.

But when they're both offered at the same time by two different artists, lol, people are as likely to do the Face Painting first as to do the Caricaturing first. Okay. Of course, I accommodate them. But it is not easy --

These People Know How to Have Fun

I do Enjoy drawing at this Party. Comes up once per year, and I do look forward to it. They not only order my Fancy Mats (I love how they frame the pictures), but they also prefer the Fun Caricatures that make them Laugh.
