No Longer a Problem

Posted 25 days ago

Here's a situation that hasN't been coming up lately. Actually quite a relief. I miss Facepainting. I like to do that. But I wouldn't do Facepainting during this Covid-Pandemic because it is Hands On. Most people know better than to even ask for that.

But back Before the Pandemic, it was not unusual for a Client to order Both Caricatures And Facepainting. That's Great if s/he arranges for the Caricatures First. The Facepainting can confuse what the Caricaturist is seeing.

Not quite so intense in these pictures - the facepainter was quite tame, but you can see some quite Transformational Facepaintings at my own blog, https://facepaintingexpress.blogspot.com/ .Sometimes a good facepainting can 'hide' what the person really looks like. Sort of an exaggerated use of make-up.

Looking through some pre-Covid Caricatures today, I came across a few that I drew after Someone Else facepainted these people. I can draw them, but it is more difficult to Caricature people who are already Facepainted. So I appreciate it that it hasn't been happening lately. People have been ordering Only the Caricatures now that the Covid-Pandemic is lightening up. I feel happy to Only Draw on Paper until it's more suitable to Paint on People.

The Difference Between Drawing Alone or Entertaining People

Posted Aug 2020

Here I am again ~ Drawing a#Party Style Caricature Quickly. Not.

Based on a Reference Photo of a woman that I drew in person at a previous Event. I just get so into my picture. When I'm home.

But I know how the people affect me when I'm drawing at an Event. Then I can count on my automatic drawing, so I can focus more on the People than on the drawing. So the drawing will go faster. There.

What People Want

Posted Aug 2020

today i felt curious to fuss around with the extra Coloring that I posted back on June 3, 2020. Onto a Caricature that I actually drew At a Party.

Since I didn't have the Original, I scanned the photo of it into Gimp and made it all Gray. Then I changed the levels so I could print it out as uncolored Lines on white paper.

I spent more time playing around with the Colors than I intended. Not going to be useful at a Party.

So I printed out the linework again, and Colored it more simply, but it still took longer than what I actually did at the Party.

My Party Experience indicates that people are just as happy with the first one that I actually colored At the Party ~ where they are more interested in getting it handed to them as Quickly as possible, getting a good laugh, and walking off to show it to their friends.

Party Calligraphy

Posted Aug 2020

Just nice to have around. On the table. In the car.

Especially nice if it's matted and framed on the wall.

I'm happy to draw Calligraphy Words or Calligraphy Names for All the Guests at your Event. Patience. Health. Love. Peace. Joy. Faith. Courage. Bravery. Life. Creativity. Cooperation. Confidence. Energy........
