Refreshing My Business

Posted Dec 2015

Hi! I regularly go through my Supplies. Of course, I have to do that because I use up the Papers, Paints, Markers....... But I also have to refresh my Marketing. On my own, I would feel always too busy to do that. But since I work through Agents as well as on my own, I'm 'encouraged" to send them New Samples every once in a while. To do so, I just send them some of the pictures from my blog. Here are some of the Face Painting Samples that I recently chose to send my Party Entertainment Agent. And a Caricature too, of course.

Back to School

Posted Sep 2015

Hello ~ Back to School Season starting again. And here I am. Doing what I can to help people Enjoy their Events.

So when they ask me to Caricature people After Someone Else has Face-Painted them, that's what I do. Even though it does complicate things.

I wish it was set up so the Caricatures are drawn Before the Face Painting.

Whether it be my own Face Painting Or Someone Else's.

In this post you can see the Caricatures that I drew after Someone Else Face-Painted these Guests. The Party was arranged so the Caricaturist and the Face Painter were there At the Same Time.

If you want to see My Face Painting, please go to my other blog:

I Wish

Posted Sep 2015

I wish I could always get photos when my Caricatures are getting their Great Reactions. I don't just bring Pictures to the Party. I bring Entertainment. Artwork. Happy Fun Surprises.

I caught a few of the Reactions at a recent college event. Sometimes they just go on and on. The Energy just flows through the guests:

Back Lighting

Posted Aug 2015

I usually try to set up in such a way that people can see the drawings being created. People like to watch. They like to be in my Zone.

But I finally decided that that will not be my primary criteria for the Set Up if I am asked to draw in front of a bright Window. Because it is too difficult to see the faces that I am drawing if they are affected by Back Lighting.

At this particular Wedding Party, I was in that situation. In order for the guests to be Entertained by watching the drawing happen, I had set up with the easel facing the main room. Since I was told to set up near a big bright window, that meant that the people who were being drawn had no light on their faces. Even the good lights that I brought along could not compete with the brightly lit window. Their faces were just too difficult to see.

After struggling through a few pictures, I changed the set up so I could see the features my comfortably. I turned around so the easel was facing the Window. Made for a better Party Atmosphere This time. But I feel like the Clients were missing out on one part of the Entertainment which I could have given them if I was allowed to close the window curtains and plug in my lights instead.

I can only do what I am allowed to do.

Still..... it all works out. A good time was had by all.
