Direct Approach for Gift Caricature

Posted Jul 2019

Always exciting when I start on a Gift Caricature, a Studio piece. Because I'm not just filling in the blanks. That wouldn't be Artwork. it's a process ~ I don't know what it will involve until I do it.

This time, still exciting, I finally didn't try to reinvent the horse. I just designed the best way to express what my Client wanted to express: A kind, beloved School Nurse who was Retiring. My Client told me to draw the kind, beloved School Nurse with a Stethoscope and a Fun Uniform and a Generic Child. And to include the Name of the School. And she requested a Horizontal format ~ something I don't usually do. It was a quite fine experience for all of us.

Oh ~ and on the side, my Client also mentioned that she always called the Children "Bumble" ~ hence my black/yellow shirt on the Child

New Style

Posted May 2019

I feel so excited! A new Style of Caricature for me. Using Run-On Lines to tell the Short Story.

Took me a lot more effort than it looks, so I'm not ready to use this style at Parties. But I feel like it will help my Party approach ~ because it might get me accustomed to seeing more than one attribute at a time.

Tonight was the first time I drew like this. I'm hoping that Clients will give me the go-ahead to draw like this when they order Gift Caricatures or Illustrations that I draw on my own time in the Studio. Oh I wish.

dolls

Posted Apr 2012

It's that time again. A lot of Studio Caricatures been coming my way. I never cease to be amazed at how each one is different ~ each client is different. Each picture is different. Each experience is different.

This time I was booked to draw at the older girl"s 5th Birthday Party. My client, having seen my blog, decided that it would be a good idea to draw the Birthday Girl and her sister ahead of time. To have it on display. To make sure they'd have time to be drawn..... So she also ordered a Studio Caricature. Good. That's nice.

Then the Agreement arrived. Ummmm, on it the Mother wrote that the girl is sensitive. So I shouldn't accentuate 'certain features'. Ummmm. Lol. Which features doesn't she like? These girls look like absolute Dolls! Did you ever see anyone so cute??? And anyway, how am I supposed to make it look like them if I'm not free to work with what I See? Has she seen this blog??? I thought this really shows how I see things, how I draw things.

Okay. I start drawing. Thinking Beauty. Lovely. Beauty. Lalala. And here's what I came up with. I love it. Feels perfect. But it's black/white. I was hired to make a Color Caricature. Oh.

So I went to the Office Supply Store. Made a photocopy on Shiny Paper. And Matted it as an extra freebee for my client. Because I thought that Color would ruin it. I'll post the Color copy when I have it.
