Digital Caricatures are Not for Outdoors

Posted 4 days ago

Awful experience I had today.

An Agent booked me for an Event mid-August. As usual for him, he doesn't tell me details until the last-minute. All I got was Time/Date/Town. And Digital Caricatures. Yes I'm available.

Then I realized that it would probably be Outdoors. Re Summertime. and Corona Virus. Outdoors. I'm guessing.

I hope it won't rain on my Expensive Equipment.

My own pricelist says that Digital Caricatures are Not offered Outdoors. I just realized that I hadn't made that clear with the Agent. So I took my IPad out into my own backyard today to check out the experience. Right in the middle of the yard. No shade. Because that would be the worst-case scenario at a Party.

I COULD BARELY SEE THE SCREEN. Because of the Sun shining on it. Hot, sweaty, uncomfortable. It took me 15 miserable minutes to make this first Caricature. Quite Unpleasant for me. And I wasn't even further encumbered with a Mask This time because I was alone in my own backyard.

It probably wouldn't be this unpleasant at a Party. I just feel like a Professional Entertainer should be ready to handle anything that does come up.

I've felt this sort of worry before, only to find a Much more pleasant situation at the Event. Because Clients are People, too. They want to be Kind and they want everybody to be Happy at their Party. It's just because I'm so Experienced that I can come up with things to worry about.

And what about Electricity? I'll bring a backup battery, and This upcoming Event does not require Printing, but.....

and then I moved into the Shad and drew this little girl. Probably not so bad, but I was already so stressed from the picture that I drew in the Sun, that I just forced myself through the drawing. Awful experience today ~ because I expect to Enjoy drawing. Art is for Fun.

Sunshine Baby

Posted 10 days ago

Tonight's Practice started out to streamline my approach to Digital Caricatures. Party style.

But it still felt like it needed to be livened up.

Will I never stay simple?? It looks great either way. I like the simpler one with the darker background ~ a peaceful bedtime picture. And I like the bright one with the sunshine. Feels happy for my eyes

Are we out of the woods yet?

Could this really be? It feels so right to be back in the saddle again ~ preparing for an upcoming Party. Yes I said Party. People are starting to live again. Having Parties. Having Fun.

So here I am, switching gears once again. I had been doing a lot of my own stuff because covid-19 kept me isolated, but now I actually booked a Girl's Birthday Party for this week.

Checking out my Supplies and making sure I remember how to draw Party Style. It felt easy. Comfortable. I got right into it when I drew this practice Caricature at home.

But as usual, age-old-questions can still pop up. Like whether to use the Heavy Line or not....... hmmmm..... and how much to Color..... hmmmm Yes more Color
