Sheesh

Posted Sep 2019

Sheesh. I can't post tonight's Caricature because it's a Predraw for tomorrow's Proposal Caricature. Of course, I can't let other people see it before my Client does.

After a month of countless emails and texts and photos and changed locationS, I finally felt ready to do the Predraw. This is a unique Proposal Caricature because my Client doesn't want me to draw the Caricature alone in my Studio and then pretend to draw it on-site like I usually do. He wants to catch what they look like and how they dress This day. And he also doesn't want me to take too long drawing on-site because he doesn't want his Lady to wonder......

So I did a Predraw of a basic composition and what the faces will probably look like ~ based on my Client's photos. Came out great. But I still have to ink it and add Color and actually draw the Faces and Clothes when I get there. I feel confident with this wonderful Predraw.

But Oh. I have to use Public Transportation to get to this location. I packed up the 22x28 predraw and my markers and easel etc. But when I tried to include the Larger heavy Drawing Board, it did Not fit in the folio that I use for 22x28 papers. I don't know how I am going to Carry several 22x28 Cardstocks And a bigger Heavy Drawing Board and my Markers, Travel Directions etc, and my 2-Part Easel ~ in the car and on the train and on the subway and on the Long walk from there to get to the destination.

I have done 22 x 28 Proposal Caricatures near this location before. But they were always drawn ahead of time in my Studio. So I only had to bring my regular drawing board for pretending that I was doing regular drawing until I had taken out the 22 x 28. I didn't need to bring the Giant Heavy Drawing Board Oh.

It's now 130am. I have to leave the house at 7am to get there in time. So there's no time to shop to try different ideas. I have to come up with something. Hmmmm..... Never a dull moment

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:
