Are we out of the woods yet?

Posted Jul 2020

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

Adults Wanna Have Fun

Posted May 2019

This one was drawn at a Communion. Both the Children And the Adults loved the Caricature Entertainment. I hope I'll get a chance to post more of them soon.

Just taking a moment to post at least this one. To remind my Clients that it's important to take care of the Adults And Children at their Parties ~ and I feel happy that my Caricatures can do that. My Caricatures are Fun for People of All Ages

Self Assurance

Posted Mar 2019

This Party was a pleasant Surprise. For me. Comfortable, Self-assured Children (mostly 12-year-old Girls) ~ who actually weren't afraid to have Fun. This is what Childhood should be. I feel like I can't say enough about it. I was drawing Caricatures at this Party of Wonderful, UNINHIBITED Children having simple healthy fun. Confident enough to be able to laugh at themselves.

Of course we know that all these Children are Beautiful. How can you be anything But beautiful at this age? And I was able to see their inner beautify shine though also. A Community Spirit of Love, Joy, Acceptance, and Accepted.

Whatever Makes You Happy

Posted Oct 2018

This Client requested that I include a little Cartoony Jungle Animal on each of the Children's Caricatures. She wanted them drawn At the Party. In addition to the Caricature. In Color. And..... Animal? Which ended up causing many of the Compositions to require Bodies also.....

It involved all sorts of extra things to do on each picture. The Guests still want to get their Caricatures quickly. So I just kept draaaaaawing.

I could see why a person might want something like that. It's cute, and it could be fun for a child to relate to something like that. But me ~ It's usually my experience that the Simpler the Picture, with a Statement, drawn with as few lines as needed..... aka the Short Story..... that's what gets the quickest Party Fun Surprises. It felt chancy to switch gears and swing into it when Adult came for their Caricatures. Like an exercise to Alternate Control with Freedom.

Not easy to do. I felt so grateful that it all worked out so well. I drew Almost as many Caricatures as I usually do
