Defining My Approach

Posted Jan 2019

I wanted to feel more in control of whether I'm drawing Exaggerated Caricatures Or Tame Caricatures. There usually isn't enough time to Control anything during a Party, but I felt like I might have a little more Control if I look into it on my Time Off.

So I took a few photos at random from other posts on this website. Even though the Caricatures that I had drawn At the Events were fine, yes very fine, I wanted to see what would happen if I decided ahead of time whether to draw Tamely or Exaggerated. I'm posting them here so I can see them all together and try to make sense out of the experience:

Hmmmm... What I see from this experience is that it's all good. As long as I'm seriously into the drawing, it's interesting to see what comes out. And hmmmm... I would like to check out furtherly exaggerating stuff. Like ~ don't stop at one or two exaggerations, but exaggerate Everything. Not sure how that would go over at an Event though. I feel like people usually want to see something that looks something like a Face when I'm hired to draw 'Faces' lol. Aaaannndd... perhaps to dull down even more with the Tame Caricatures. Like how simple/garbage can I take it to ~ and Then to figure out how to turn That into a good picture from That point. It's all good. I love Artwork. I love to see what I can do in a picture.

Aaaaand... I was reminded about how much I love to draw on the IPad. I hope to play around with That some more too.

Post Script ~ Or am I? Am I hired to draw Faces? Oooor, and this is what it really is ~ I am hired to draw Caricatures. Just because some people think that 'Caricatures' means 'Faces' doesn't make it true.

Bad Set Up

Posted Dec 2018

I didn't feel like this Client took full advantage of the Caricature Entertainment she ordered. She put her Entertainment into a Dark Corner of the room? Doesn't make sense to me to do that ~ but she still had a Successful Party. Full of people who felt happy to be there. I also got some Great Reactions to these Caricatures, but I couldn't photograph the Reactions with the Ipad because the Reactions came when the Guests were looking at their Caricatures on it.

It was Dark. I happily had No problem seeing what I was drawing on the IPad because it's all lit up, but it felt stressful to actually see Who I was drawing. The Lights that I brought definitely helped, but not really enough. There was no good place to attach them in the Very Small Space. They told me to Set Up in a Corner behind the Photo Booth. With my Back to the Wall so nobody could see the Drawing develop......

When a Caricature was finished, looking just like the Guests, I felt as surprised and thrilled as the Guests felt. Because I could barely see them. Every Event is Different ~ Just like Every Person is Different. I love the different Experiences

Toned Paper

Posted Dec 2018

Sometimes I bring along some paper that's not white. I love the way a white color stick can show up on the toned paper.

Purple paper, Brown Paper, White Paper, whatever ~ It's all good.
