Self Assurance

Posted Mar 2019

This Party was a pleasant Surprise. For me. Comfortable, Self-assured Children (mostly 12-year-old Girls) ~ who actually weren't afraid to have Fun. This is what Childhood should be. I feel like I can't say enough about it. I was drawing Caricatures at this Party of Wonderful, UNINHIBITED Children having simple healthy fun. Confident enough to be able to laugh at themselves.

Of course we know that all these Children are Beautiful. How can you be anything But beautiful at this age? And I was able to see their inner beautify shine though also. A Community Spirit of Love, Joy, Acceptance, and Accepted.

How to Find out What's Needed

Posted Mar 2019

I'm not sure of what to forecast for an Upcoming Party. But what I am sure of is that there will be some Teenage Boys there. So I decided to draw some teenage boys. I used random photos that I found online for reference.

Can you imagine my surprise when I saw how awkwardly they came out? Ick:

Good thing that I practiced first at home so I caught that. So now I remembered to Look at what I'm Drawing while drawing it. And to draw the Face before considering whether or not I want to include other things:

I'm not expecting many people at this Small Party. So I want to feel ready to swing into Body/Hobby ~ just in case. I discovered that different things work on different days. Tonight I did not like going Near the old fashioned bighead/littlebodies. I did much better to just draw the Face, and Then add in whatever part of a body/hobby fits in the space that is left over.

Note: I sure don't shy away from the difficult ones ~ I don't look for Reference pictures of people who have something easy to Caricature. It keeps me comfortable to handle any person who shows up at the Party:

Mats with Glitter

Posted Feb 2019

Getting ready for my next Event ~ Fashion Sketches at a Sweet 16. My Client ordered Decorated Mats.

I usually Paint them, so I felt surprised that I made several with Just Glitter. I never know what I'm going to do until I do it.

I'm looking forward to seeing what I'm going to be drawing in them!
