Repeat Clients

Posted Aug 2018

Every year, my lovely Client hires me to draw at her Staff Party. She runs an UpScale Bar. I feel like I know her already. And I want very much that she have a Successful Event. As always. I always want my Clients to have Successful Events.

In this case, I almost feel like I'm one of the Staff already.

I like that ~

I tamed the Tongue !

Posted Jul 2018

Today I was thinking about drawing Cartoon Eyes. Simple. For my Party Caricatures. I started by emphasizing (focusing on?) the Ball of the eye. But then I wanted to focus on the skin that's overlapping the eyeball.

While I was at it, I got off on a tangent, and noticed that I'd better look in to Tongues. Success. I got it to lay down. I damed the Tongue!

Control Artwork?

Posted Jun 2018

In some ways, drawing Tame Caricatures at today's Event (as requested by my Client) was easier than having carte blanche. But in some ways, it was harder.

Even without my Client's instructions, sometimes I draw like this anyway. But it's hard to Force it. Hard to Control the Artwork.

A lot happens in 3 Hours. Here's one of the pictures that I drew. Along with this Guest's Reaction. Sometimes I would feel 'egged on' to draw Exaggerated Caricatures when my Audience started getting in to the small exaggerations that I was allowing into my Tame Caricatures. So I would feel conflicted ~ two different messages in my brain ~ I feel like it's more sure that I can easily get great pictures if I just let it happen. But I also feel thrilled that I was able to please my Client and his Guests
