Studying at Starbucks

Humility. I felt inspired by the way I recently organized my approach to Digital Caricatures, so I felt inspired to organize my approach to Caricatures Drawn with Markers. I used to consider that 'filling in the blanks', not 'real art'. Feeling like I Must Be Better Than That in order to be a Real Artist. But it only makes sense. So I'm not 'taken by surprise' each time I start to make a Drawing.

Turned out that I could only tailor it down to 3 Different Approaches. Outside-In, Inside-Out, and Exaggerated. I pretty much only felt successful with Outside-In and Exaggerated. I'm figuring that Outside-In is more suitable for Events like Communions, and Exaggerated is the way to go for Teenagers and Grown-Ups. Probably just a good Starting Plan at Events. Because the experience of actually using these different approaches was different than expected.

After several Successful Caricatures with one type of approach, I felt burned out on it. Didn't like what came out anymore. But if I switched to the Other Approach, the pictures were fresh again. And either way, I had to be doing Warm Ups as usual ~ to keep my lines Fresh.

Good Speed!

Posted 30 days ago

I comfortably kept up my Drawing Speed today ~ Even though I was doing Both Body/Hobby And Color. I somehow Simplify when there's this other stuff to include.

The hardest part of doing Body/Hobby is communicating. Frequently the Music is too loud to talk, but that wasn't the case at today's lovely Party. Still though, people just draw a Blank when I ask them what they like to do.

Here's One of the pictures that I drew today. Finally, after the Paaauuusseee ~ while I was drawing the Faces with no idea of what else I would have to include in the picture ~ the girl said "Color. We like to Color."

It was easy for me to swing into Picture ideas. I was 'in the Zone' because I was forwarned that I would be doing Body/Hobby today

Body/Hobby Again ??

Posted 31 days ago

Was it only last month that I handled an Event with Body/Hobby? I have another one coming up tomorrow, so I approached tonight's Body/Hobby practice as though I haven't done it in a Very long time.

Here are a couple that I drew
