The Man Down the Street

Posted Nov 2020

I haven't been drawing much lately. Very few jobs since Pandemic. So I've been spending my time doing things I didn't get much time to do when I used to draw at so many Parties and Events. Like Yay ~ Drumming! My latest thing.

So we were talking about what it feels like to be really drumming compared to pacticing drumming. It's much like the difference between really draiwng compared to theory and technique.

I mindlessly picked up a Crayola marker to illustrate my point, and I draw this picture of a man that I saw out the window for a flash of a moment. He was all the way down the street.

Aaah ~ It felt Great! Reminded me of why I like to draw. In the Zone. Exaggerating naturally to get the feel of what I see. I miss work. I miss my jobs

Simplifying for Corporate Events

Posted Jul 2020

I've been practicing Simplifying Caricatures. I feel like this is a good style for Corporate Events and for other Parties where people are self-conscious. To get along with Today's society.

I am trying to stay with this simpler style throughout the picture. Not going in to my more Exaggerated stuff unless it feels right for the Party. I am trying to stay with this simpler style throughout the picture. Exaggeration only looks good if it's done with abandon. I do not feel happy with the results of trying to impose exaggeration onto tame.

Pencil Caricature ~ Health Care Worker

Posted Mar 2020

As an Artist, so many people pass through my life. I'm frequently quite impressed with them, but I see them for 5 minutes, and then..... gone. Sometimes I think of them. Like this Health-Care-Worker. I had drawn her back in the olden days ~ quick Party Style ~ when we were allowed to be with groups of people. I had been hired to draw the Staff AT a Home? Assisted Living Facility? I don't know. I just go there. Went there.

Now, home with these Social Distancing Rules, I got to thinking of some of the people who were taking care of others. I wonder if this woman is still Out There ~ somebody has to take care of the people who live at the facility. My pencil started moving. I redrew her Caricature in a different style. I drew her Pencil Caricature tonight. More like something I might draw as a Gift. Appreciating this woman who is probably still Out There ~ taking care of others.
