No Longer a Problem

Posted 26 days ago

Here's a situation that hasN't been coming up lately. Actually quite a relief. I miss Facepainting. I like to do that. But I wouldn't do Facepainting during this Covid-Pandemic because it is Hands On. Most people know better than to even ask for that.

But back Before the Pandemic, it was not unusual for a Client to order Both Caricatures And Facepainting. That's Great if s/he arranges for the Caricatures First. The Facepainting can confuse what the Caricaturist is seeing.

Not quite so intense in these pictures - the facepainter was quite tame, but you can see some quite Transformational Facepaintings at my own blog, https://facepaintingexpress.blogspot.com/ .Sometimes a good facepainting can 'hide' what the person really looks like. Sort of an exaggerated use of make-up.

Looking through some pre-Covid Caricatures today, I came across a few that I drew after Someone Else facepainted these people. I can draw them, but it is more difficult to Caricature people who are already Facepainted. So I appreciate it that it hasn't been happening lately. People have been ordering Only the Caricatures now that the Covid-Pandemic is lightening up. I feel happy to Only Draw on Paper until it's more suitable to Paint on People.

Great Paper !

Posted Oct 2019

Doodling while talking on the phone with my friend tonight. Tribals. I just picked up a Marker, and it felt so good to glide it over this paper ~ which was actually the back of a photocopy of a Studio Caricature that I made many years ago.

The paper was Both Heavy And Smooth! I hope I remember to bring it along the next time I go to Staples. They printed it behind the counter, but I'm hoping they sell packages of this Paper too.

Not My Face Paintings

Posted May 2015

I'm a Facepainter as well as a Caricature Artist. So I am particularly interested in seeing other people's facepaintings. But it's particularly hard to Caricature people who have already been face-painted. I wish they knew to come for their Caricature Before their Facepainting.

But of course, I handle whatever comes my way. And sometimes it's people who have already been facepainted. I feel amazed that I can still do a very good job of Caricaturing them. Sometimes including the Face Painting, sometimes not including it.

But then comes the next problem with it. Especially if I'm Not impressed with the job that some other facepainter did. Because I want it to be clear when I post these photos that I did Not do that particular facepainting. You can see samples of my facepainting at facepaintingexpress.blogspot.com
