New Style

Posted May 2019

I feel so excited! A new Style of Caricature for me. Using Run-On Lines to tell the Short Story.

Took me a lot more effort than it looks, so I'm not ready to use this style at Parties. But I feel like it will help my Party approach ~ because it might get me accustomed to seeing more than one attribute at a time.

Tonight was the first time I drew like this. I'm hoping that Clients will give me the go-ahead to draw like this when they order Gift Caricatures or Illustrations that I draw on my own time in the Studio. Oh I wish.

Honing My Style

Posted May 2019

Uh-Oh. Just a few hours before that Special Needs Prom, I decided to practice, and oh ~ this is what came out. Cute for sure, but I don't feel like this is what they're looking for this time.

It was coming out like this because I wasn't On my usual 'game'. I've been revamping my approach. So many different ways to approach a Caricature. I decided that I like to keep them Simple, but Also Exaggerated. I don't want to give up that Exaggeration that is the mark of a good Caricaturist. Without Exaggeration, without taking chances, I don't feel like a person can rightly be called a 'Caricature' Artist.

I was honing my Approach because I wanted to draw like the 4th picture here. That was my goal this time.

Aaaahh. I finally did it. It's a good thing I practice before I show up. Smoothing out the rough edges. Now I can draw Either way:

Aaaah. Aaaah. To cement this approach, I just swung into these next few pictures. I feel like I'm ready to go to work now:

Wonderful Client Review

Allison arrived on time, she was very well dressed and professional. She is really talented, she made the caricatures look very close to the person, the kids loved her. She's really an artist and she works really fast! I'm so happy that I found Allison to entertain the kids at my son's first communion. I highly recommend Allison! Thank you Allison you are the best!

Posted Apr 2019

Here are a few photos from the Party Caricatures that I made at a Woman's 40th Birthday Party. At a bar. These people had so much fun together.
