Graffiti Names ~ Quick Line Work

Posted Feb 2017

Event Entertainment. Here are some Samples of what I would draw if you wanted Graffiti Names drawn very quickly at your Party. They look quite Cool, and they're easy for me to do. They would probably also look great with swooshes of Color drawn behind them. Hmmmm.....

What you are seeing here is two different creations for each name. When there are a lot of people waiting, I would usually draw Just the Basics. Just what's needed. But it just takes another minute or so for me to make it like the slightly more elaborate versions shown here. I like to do that.

BTW ~ These can also be drawn on Customer-Supplied t-shirts

Difficult to Do But Worth It

Posted Jan 2017

This was difficult to do. My Client designed a Party about Lips for her Young Ladies. She hired me to draw Caricatures ~ with 'Big" Lips. Okay. But not everyone Has big lips. I explained to her that I would Focus on the Lips, but not everyone has Big lips. Caricature isn't to Change the person ~ it's to Accentuate what's already there.

It was the perfect party for this age-group. I think the girls were about 12 years old. My client provided them with Candy Lips and all sorts of things like Lip-Shaped Cookies (Fun! to put sweet Lip Shaped Cookies on your Lips). And my Caricatures.

It felt difficult for me to Focus on Lips ~ like it's not hard enough to know what to focus on to create each good Caricature. But it worked. I was able to do it and also Entertain the Party Guests at the same time. They even got involved in Singing along Fun Sounds to my Marker Strokes as well as the posing and laughing. What a wonderful place to be. What a wonderful time in the Girl's lives.
