Whatever Makes You Happy

Posted 10 days ago

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

Graceful Hands

Posted 17 days ago

Recently spending time dreaming up Mermaid Caricatures, I felt inspired to look into Graceful Hands. At first, I carefully drew this pose with bent fingers. But too much care went into it to actually use it at Parties. Where things have to be done Fast. I Stopped.

I extrapolated what was important about this. I feel like it's the bend in the wrist ~ which shows the palm from underneath. Anytime a hand comes up in my pictures now, I might quickly jump into "To show the palm, or Not to show the palm" ~ that is a question. That would be useful for me in designing pictures on the spot.

All Went Well

Posted 25 days ago

All went well at this night's Event where I was supposed to draw each CARICATURE as a Mermaid or a Merman. Tuned out to be a Beer Product Promotion. So I was even able to incorporate Beer into some of the CARICATUREs.

Here are photos of a few of the pictures that I drew.

Mermaids and Mermen

Posted 27 days ago

I was only given ONE DAY'S NOTICE that I will be drawing the CARICATURES as Mermaids and Mermen at my next Event Egads.

Whenever something unusual is expected, I prefer to have time to play around with some ideas Before I get to the Event. So I started drawing ~ here in my Studio. You can see how I was struggling to come up with a "Manly" Tail is that even necessary? Anyway, after I get these tame drawings done, I might be able to Wow Wild (I hope) with those Tails. I hope I have time to develop my ideas
