Damien Lewis

Posted Feb 2019

Every once in a while, I'll draw a Caricature of a Famous Celebrity ~ even if I never really heard of them before I found a random Photo Reference of them Online.

Tonight I drew Damien Lewis. This is what I saw:

Follow Up the next night:

As an exercise, I turned the 'face' a little bit:

Good Morning. More Color added. ~~It's a disorienting experience ~ putting the cart before the horse which I do with using my Caricature Supplies. Because I had had traditional training in which I put down the midtones first ~ and Then I added in the shadows and the highlights. Markers and Color Sticks don't let me handle the highlights this way. I'm toying with the idea of using darker colors

Calligraphy Entertainment

Posted Nov 2018

Lately people have been requesting Either Calligraphy Or Graffiti when they order my CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI NAMES/WORDS. Turns out that it feels sooo much better to stick to One Style at a Time and it's sooo much better for the Party. Gives the Party a Style too. Either Elegant Calligraphy like this. Or Streetlike Graffiti.

Whatever Makes You Happy

Posted Oct 2018

This Client requested that I include a little Cartoony Jungle Animal on each of the Children's Caricatures. She wanted them drawn At the Party. In addition to the Caricature. In Color. And..... Animal? Which ended up causing many of the Compositions to require Bodies also.....

It involved all sorts of extra things to do on each picture. The Guests still want to get their Caricatures quickly. So I just kept draaaaaawing.

I could see why a person might want something like that. It's cute, and it could be fun for a child to relate to something like that. But me ~ It's usually my experience that the Simpler the Picture, with a Statement, drawn with as few lines as needed..... aka the Short Story..... that's what gets the quickest Party Fun Surprises. It felt chancy to switch gears and swing into it when Adult came for their Caricatures. Like an exercise to Alternate Control with Freedom.

Not easy to do. I felt so grateful that it all worked out so well. I drew Almost as many Caricatures as I usually do
