Party Memories

Posted Feb 2019

When I look through the Thousands of Photos that I haven't had time to post here yet, I can still remember the Parties where I drew them. Even though I go to several Parties every week. Even though I may have only been with these people for 5 or 10 minutes. Our interactions still affect me.

I'll post one of them now. I drew this Caricature several Years ago. At a House Party. I was drawing in the Living Room. Practically everybody in this Family was Blonde and So Beautiful ~ and I felt very comfortable with them. I figure that if I can remember the Party when I see the Caricatures, for sure Party Guests remember the Event when they see (or display) the Caricatures. Good times:

Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Party

Posted Jan 2019

Just by adding a Professional Party Artist to the mix ~ you've not only given your Guests something Unique, but you've also given them a 'Conversation Starter' aaaannnnd a boost that will encourage them to 'Remember Your Celebration even After they leave the Party. Sometimes even Years After your Party. Each Party is Unique ~ The type of Experience you offer Your Guests depends on which Images you offer. Just like you can choose a Pizza Party Or an Elegant Dinner Party, you can also choose Fun CARICATURES Or Insightful CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES, etc. It's more internalized by the Guests when the Party Image becomes part of their own image. They can feel like an integral part of the Party that You Designed.

CARICATURES

DIGITAL CARICATURES

FACE PAINTING

TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS (including Freehand Glitter Tattoos)

BALLOONS

CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES

FASHION SKETCHES

CARICATURES and DIGITAL CARICATURES and FASHION SKETCHES and CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES all go home with Your Guests as Party Favors. They are frequently hung on the Wall in your Friends' Homes. Your Guests will probably remember ~ for as long as the picture is part of their Every-Day awareness ~ what they were Celebrating when they got it. And when you hire your Party Art, you can even order a logo to be included for a small extra charge. That's something like:

had fun at
(Name)'s Party

(Name)'s Birthday Party
Date

fine art from
(Name)'s Party

The BALLOONS ~ so much a part of a Party ~ well, they don't last as long. But when they're created On the Spot ~ During the Party ~ it's so much more interactive than just putting up a few BALLOONS. When the BALLOONS are created right At the Party, the Guests will feel like they're more than just decorations. Your Guests will feel like they are holding Party in their hands. And afterwards ~ we are intrigued to ask people where they've been if we see them walking home with the Party Balloons. Which, well, they only last as long as they will last. Here are some Samples of Alison's BALLOONS:




FACE PAINTING ~ Oh so Special when it's done right. You Guests can feel oh so Special when they're 'transformed' with the Power of their own images. Which can last all day (or until they decide to wash them off ~ Alison's FACE PAINTING washes off easily with soap and water). Here are some Samples of Alison's FACE PAINTINGS:




TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS (including Freehand Digital Tattoos) ~ Oh ~ you can't imagine how Glamorous and Special you can feel with one of these magnificent decorations until you've had a Real one done. They rest on the Surface of the skin, and can last about a week ~ lingering joy from Your Event every time your Guests notice their very own TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS. An experience they're not likely to have any other time. Alison's TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS look great while they're At the Party. And Your Guests can be blown away by the Wow when they see them the next day Out in the Sun! Your Party is the Special One. Here are some Samples of Alison's TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS:

I can visualize 3/4 view even if I'm shown Front View

Posted Jan 2019

It's hard to do, but I can do it.

Tonight I wanted to hone my clarification between Tame Caricatures and Exaggerated Caricatures. I'm really developing a very good ability to control this. I set out to draw Tame Caricatures, and they stayed that way. I drew Tame Caricatures. Based on some Photos that I had taken at Events.

But they were all Front Views. When we're involved with people, they have a habit of turning straight toward us. I wondered if I could draw 3/4 view Caricatures even if a person was looking directly at me. It's hard ~ takes a little more time and effort if the Guest doesn't sit in 3/4 view when I want to draw 3/4 view. But I can do it!

Hmmm..... Sometimes the Caricature looks better in the Front View, and sometimes it looks better in the 3/4 View. I feel like the best way to use this skill (if I have the nerve to do it at a Party) ~ is to choose the easiest way to get a good Caricature. I would only choose to draw a Different View than the one that I actually see ~ If I don't feel like the Front View has anything interesting in it. Or if I'm getting tired of drawing Front Views.

I'll frequently make Changes at intervals throughout the Event to keep myself interested. Because if the Artist isn't interested in what she's drawing, usually nobody else will be either. This could be just one more of the many different things that I change up when needed.
