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.

How to draw a Lot of Caricatures

Posted Jul 2015

Here are some photos of a few Caricatures I drew at a Recent Party. There were a lot of people there because it was a Combined 1-year-old's Party And 40-year-old's Party. So I kept to black and white when possible ~ to save a step, thereby finishing each picture faster so I could draw more people. Even so, I give the effort to make them Good Pictures. Useable. Something that people would Enjoy at the Party as well as after the Party. After they take them home. That's how to draw a Lot of Caricatures. You can cut out a Step, but you Cannot cut back on Quality.
