Ready for Any Type of Party

Posted Jan 2020

Caricature Event coming up for this Weekend ~ at a loud dark Bowling Alley in the Afternoon. So I figure I'll be drawing mostly Children? Just a guess ~ I still wasn't told what Type of Party it will be.

To practice, to warm up, I just drew the linework based on reference photos of Children that I found on the web. To be in the groove.

then I studied simple Shading ~ assembly-line-style. Just putting the shading onto the finished Caricatures.

Of course, I discovered some things by doing this. The first is that lol ~ the reason I don't have the pretty Burnt Sienna Colorstick with my Gig Supplies is because they're all I have in my leftover scraps that I keep in my office. (but I'm not going to change that ~ the soft brown that I keep for my gigs is more useful.)

Then.... less is more. Unless I'm drawing something Dark. And maybe I'll bring along the smooth (lightweight) paper for tomorrow's Event ~ for smoother shading. But I'll also carry these regular heavier papers because the lightweight paper felt too flimsy for me the last time I used it At a Party . and Never color in the whole section between eye and eyebrow. That could make for quicker production as Parties.

Children's Temporary Tattoos are also good

Posted Jul 2019

Temporary Tattoos ~ I usually create my own designs ~ to fit each individual person ~ on the spot ~ right there at the Party. FREEHAND. But sometimes I'm hired to apply the READY-MADE Children's Temporary Tattoos. I used to think Only very young children could enjoy those things. But that's not the case anymore. I am now able to bring some pretty nice designs ~ that can even delight adults. It's fun to choose which ready-made design you want.

They're still not as glamorous and edgy as the Freehand Temporary Tattoos that I create with a brush, but there is also a place for these Ready Made 'Childrens' Tattoos (which are also a surprisingly great experience for Adults too)

.

I felt most surprised that I've been doing Approximately 30 Children's Temporary Tattoos per hour. That is a perk. Because even though they're not as glamorous as the Freehand Temporary Tattoos, a lot more 'Childrens' Tattoos can be created in an hour.
