The Versatile Artist

Posted 28 days ago

Whether you warm up and what you have been doing makes all the difference in what you can draw. I'm usually just running between Caricature and Facepainting Events., but I've been doing a lot of me things instead this week. So I felt like a different person when I drew this Caricature.

Good thing I did that ~ because I wanted to warm up for drawing at an Upcoming New Years Eve #Party. The simplest idea tonight ~ to step the Girl's lips ~ kept coming out wrong. It was the first thing I drew, and it took four tries before I realized that I couldn't draw it first thing ~ the way I usually like to make Fun Drawings. I had to rely on a simpler approach ~ drawing the outside of the face first AND drawing a predraw for the lips. This time.

Versatile ~ I have many different ways for approaching my Pictures. Apparently there's no one right way. There's only the way that works best for me in the moment.

I like the way I separated the sleeve from the body

Lively Artwork

Posted Dec 2019

and Getting ready for tomorrow's First Event now ~ for Regular Caricatures.

I decided to redraw a Caricature that I drew a digitally a couple of years ago.

But tonight's drawing was drawn with Markers. The old one was Fine. But I feel like I can see my artistic growth. Regardless of the medium. This new one looks much more lively. And it felt better to draw it.

What's a Party For

Posted Nov 2019

I've been wondering lately about What's a Party For? Obvious answers are things like to Honour someone that deserves your attention, or to Make Your Child the Important Person. Also, how about to Meet People and have a chance to affect them. Things like that. But I'm remembering like Why did I get excited about going to Parties when I was a very young child. It wasn't just the potato chips. I'm remembering how the word Party, getting ready for the Party, just the idea of going to the Party, was like a light-switch to Turn On Happiness.

and that's still why I work at Parties. Drawing Caricatures, interacting with my visions..... It's a Happy Place. A Happy Time. On top of all the meeting people, seeing how well the Guest of Honor is doing, feeling included in this group.... On top of all that is an umbrella of Happiness.

Anime Babies

Posted Oct 2019

I'll be drawing Caricatures at a 1-year-old's Party this Weekend. So I figured I'd look at some Anime for inspiration. Not that I would be drawing Anime. Actually, not sure How it would be affecting me. I just figure that Anime has a lot of Big Eyes that people like for their Babies.

Then I drew some random Baby faces just anywhere on the page. The first Caricature was still inspired by the Anime I looked at. I imposed those big oval Eyes onto the face, and it worked.

But it felt uncomfortable to just draw the same eyes for each baby. And the 2nd Caricature that I drew really didn't lend itself to that eye-shape. It still came out good, still looked like it was inspired by Anime.

Then there wasn't really any room left on the paper, but I wanted to draw more. I drew 2 more babies (small), and I dropped my Anime idea. It's a good idea, but it loses its appeal if I feel like I have to impose a standard Anime face onto each Baby. Babies, like all people, have all sorts of expressions and uniques.

I feel like it was good to expose myself to Anime. It might or might not affect my drawings.
