Studying is for Students

Posted 20 days ago

Getting ready for drawing Caricatures at tomorrow's Party. It will be a Big Wedding. For practice, I used a reference photo from a previous Event where I was drawing Caricatures. Not that there was anything wrong with the one I had drawn That day, but I have to get into it again before each Event.

My first pass was so stiff ~ I feel like studying makes us like students. aka beginners. So I went back to my regular approach ~ and i feel like my recent studies will just make me feeeeeel more comfortable when im doing hair and eyes and stuff.

They Remembered Me

Posted Jun 2019

Lol ~ I've been drawing Caricatures at this Corporate Event which comes up again every year. So it's not unusual that a lot of people there remember me.

This time, they came over as soon as I walked in ~ Before I even set up. And most of them were asking for Group Caricatures. Early Morning Event. Yeow! Okay! We're On!

Honing My Style

Posted May 2019

Uh-Oh. Just a few hours before that Special Needs Prom, I decided to practice, and oh ~ this is what came out. Cute for sure, but I don't feel like this is what they're looking for this time.

It was coming out like this because I wasn't On my usual 'game'. I've been revamping my approach. So many different ways to approach a Caricature. I decided that I like to keep them Simple, but Also Exaggerated. I don't want to give up that Exaggeration that is the mark of a good Caricaturist. Without Exaggeration, without taking chances, I don't feel like a person can rightly be called a 'Caricature' Artist.

I was honing my Approach because I wanted to draw like the 4th picture here. That was my goal this time.

Aaaahh. I finally did it. It's a good thing I practice before I show up. Smoothing out the rough edges. Now I can draw Either way:

Aaaah. Aaaah. To cement this approach, I just swung into these next few pictures. I feel like I'm ready to go to work now:
