Arthur Ashe Kid's Day at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center

Posted Aug 2015

I was hired to draw at a very special day at the US Open Tennis Event.

Quite exacting ~ I was required to draw on my Client's papers which already had a background all drawn on it by someone else. Okay. But boy was there a lot of writing on those backgrounds. This event had so many names:

US Open

Arthur Ashe Kid's Day

USTA Billie Jean National Tennis Center.......

A lot of protocol ~ credentials, dress-code, wear your id, how to travel re nowhere to park..... I felt like this event had more security than when I did the Artwork at events for the cast of Camp Rock or for Joey Adams of the New York Post or for the Nickelodean Halo Awards. Well..... maybe that's just the security that I saw ~ I'm sure there's a lot more going on at high profile events that I don't see.

But once I got in and started drawing, it just felt like me and a lot of well-behaved people. I felt glad to help mark their day. Here are photos of some of the Caricatures that I drew there on Arthur Ashe Kid's Day. Might look a little limited because I had to make drawings fit their predrawn papers, but it did work to give the people the keepsakes they enjoyed.

Make Me Look Sxy

Posted Aug 2008

As usual, my pen was moving while I was chatting. Today I was thinking of making 'sxy' girls - sometimes the people I draw ask me for that. A sxy face, um, here's what I came up with today:

These would work. But I look at them, and it makes me wonder. What makes these so called 'sxy' faces? They both have big eyes. One has big hair and the other has big lips. Is big 'sxy'? If so, then the one with the small lips would not be considered 'sxy', but it is.

So is it personality? Attitude? The first one looks smug. And the second one looks scared...

Seems like any features can be 'sxy'. And any attitude can be 'sxy'. So what is it that people are asking for when they ask for 'sxy'?

BTW, what makes the picture look 'scared'? And what makes the picture look 'smug'? But that's another question.
