Photos of Reactions

Posted Aug 2019

Whenever possible, I like to take photos of the Reactions to my Caricatures. Delighted Guests. Happy Surprises. It helps me re-live the experience.

When I arrived at the venue/bar for this Party, I felt like it was going to be one of those Drawing in the Dark events oh. But no ~ as I walked in, I saw that they had an outdoor 'porch' on the water ~ oooh ~ uhoh about that too ~ do i have my sunscreen with me, or would i have to take the time to go back to my car to get it? It was like 100-degrees out there that day.

But no ~ not that either Yay. Turned out to be a great Event. My Client had arranged for a well-lit Indoor area for the Caricatures ~ her Guests could easily see the Activity from outside on the porch as well as from inside in the bar. It was all open so meandering back and forth was natural. And my Client kindly arranged for a Big Fan to be directed towards me. I felt so comfortable. I felt like I was able to do my best work, and I felt like the Guests felt comfortable and welcome also. Easy-going.

Here are a few of the Caricatures that I drew. And the Reactions of the Guests. I feel like it's the best way to really show Reviews. People having a Good Time at the Party:

Got to Focus

Posted May 2019

Repeat Client for tomorrow's Event ~ Hey! That's today already.

I wanted to get some sleep, so I was just going to do a quick linework Caricature with this Event in mind, but..... this is what happens.

The Event is for drawing the Guests as Mermen and Mermaids. For a Beer Company. Not sure, but I think they will be providing the background bodies/scenes this time (they're providing the paper). But just in case, I felt like it wouldn't be a big deal to draw my own while practicing with a random face I found online. But messing around, not Really Doing it, just a waste of time. I finally had to focus.

And it is good that I do Something before an event. Honing my approach now, I'll do better and feel more confident when I'm actually At the Event. First, my Sizing was way wrong. Better now, but I still want to play around with sizes a little more. Then I had trouble turning my front-view body. I really must Look at sideview bodies to figure out how to turn a front-post that I might like. Then, well..... I couldn't get away with 'I'm not really going to give effort to the drawing because it's time to get some sleep' idea. If I want to draw a Caricature, I really have to Do it. The 3rd pass is finally usable. Now I know how to do it.

I'm baaaack. Woke up and I'm able to draw Caricatures again. I attached a small paper to last night's _________________. And as I predicted, I'm super ready to handle tonight's #Event. Only forgot the 'crown' ~ easy ~ but just fussing and complicating my Zone. I can do it when that's what I'm hired for, but I'm supposed to be a CARICATURE Artist. Based on what I actually See.

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.

Line Speeds

Posted Apr 2019

Oh my goodness. Last minute Events. Today is Friday. There I was intrigued by Line Speeds, when

a job came in for Saturday. In which I am supposed to draw just four 4-year-old Children as though they were the President of the United States. Very Detailed On-the Spot Pictures. My Client suggested things like the Oval Office, or Air Force 1, etc.

I got a lot of research to do. A lot of Presidential Picture ideas.

The first thing I did was to Google images of the Oval Office. I drew a picture just mapping out what goes where. Then I drew a 2nd picture because I don't want a dorky pichur with no pizzazz ~ no movement. And I liked how I included the 'Oval' to clarify Shapes for 4-year-olds who, like I did for many years, might wonder why they call the office Oval. But looking at the two pictures, I'm feeling like the first one ~ simple ~ just the answers ~ feels better?

I have quite a bit of experimenting to do like asap. But it would be a good idea to get some sleep, and have a date to go Swimming this afternoon, and I'm on for making Dinner, and the day just goes......
