Humility

Posted 10 days ago

I ate dinner at Whole Foods today. Time Off. Just me and my IPad. First I watched my Disney app. Then I turned my attention to that upcoming Digital Caricature Event again. I used the Template that I made last night. The one with all the Layers set to Multiply. It felt Perfect.

I really Enjoyed playing around with this Exaggerated Caricature. But I spent way too much time on it ~ I won't be able to spend this much time on anything I draw at the Party.

So I drew from the Same Reference Photo again ~ a Simpler Caricature. It only took about 6 minutes. I got my game down pat.

I did draw it After spending a lot of time drawing it more Exaggerated, so you could say that that 6 minute timing is inaccurate ~ I already knew the answers. But I feel confident with it. Because I previously experienced that in the imperfect drawing environment of a Party, my Digital Caricatures start feeling so easy ~ and simple ~ as the experience affects me. So I do end up drawing faster than I would if I was playing around with it like I can on my Time Off.

I used the Template that I prepared last night ~ the one with all Layers set as 'Multiply'.

I usually feel like a Client is too full of himself if he can't handle an exaggerated Caricature. But sometimes, like in this case, I'm wondering if this Artist is too full of herself in thinking that her own great creativity is better than just doing it right. It's something else with which I never settle on an Answer. Because there is No Answer. It's all about being in the moment. Doing what works in the moment in terms of Fun and Humility and Ability.

Client's Requests

Posted 19 days ago

One of this Weekend's Clients requested that I draw the girls 'Pretty'. Black and White. On Smaller Paper than I usually use.

Didn't feel unreasonable. I could do that. But I felt like I would feel more comfortable at the Party if I try it out at home first.

So using Reference Photos that I found online, I drew these on Small 8 1/2 x 11 Paper. The only 'mistake' was that I picked up a Blue Colorstick at first ~ Feels Black and White to me. But I think it will make a difference for my Client. So I made sure to have plenty of Black Color Sticks available

Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Party

Posted Jan 2019

Just by adding a Professional Party Artist to the mix ~ you've not only given your Guests something Unique, but you've also given them a 'Conversation Starter' aaaannnnd a boost that will encourage them to 'Remember Your Celebration even After they leave the Party. Sometimes even Years After your Party. Each Party is Unique ~ The type of Experience you offer Your Guests depends on which Images you offer. Just like you can choose a Pizza Party Or an Elegant Dinner Party, you can also choose Fun CARICATURES Or Insightful CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES, etc. It's more internalized by the Guests when the Party Image becomes part of their own image. They can feel like an integral part of the Party that You Designed.

CARICATURES

DIGITAL CARICATURES

FACE PAINTING

TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS (including Freehand Glitter Tattoos)

BALLOONS

CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES

FASHION SKETCHES

CARICATURES and DIGITAL CARICATURES and FASHION SKETCHES and CALLIGRAPHY/GRAFFITI WORDS/NAMES all go home with Your Guests as Party Favors. They are frequently hung on the Wall in your Friends' Homes. Your Guests will probably remember ~ for as long as the picture is part of their Every-Day awareness ~ what they were Celebrating when they got it. And when you hire your Party Art, you can even order a logo to be included for a small extra charge. That's something like:

had fun at
(Name)'s Party

(Name)'s Birthday Party
Date

fine art from
(Name)'s Party

The BALLOONS ~ so much a part of a Party ~ well, they don't last as long. But when they're created On the Spot ~ During the Party ~ it's so much more interactive than just putting up a few BALLOONS. When the BALLOONS are created right At the Party, the Guests will feel like they're more than just decorations. Your Guests will feel like they are holding Party in their hands. And afterwards ~ we are intrigued to ask people where they've been if we see them walking home with the Party Balloons. Which, well, they only last as long as they will last. Here are some Samples of Alison's BALLOONS:




FACE PAINTING ~ Oh so Special when it's done right. You Guests can feel oh so Special when they're 'transformed' with the Power of their own images. Which can last all day (or until they decide to wash them off ~ Alison's FACE PAINTING washes off easily with soap and water). Here are some Samples of Alison's FACE PAINTINGS:




TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS (including Freehand Digital Tattoos) ~ Oh ~ you can't imagine how Glamorous and Special you can feel with one of these magnificent decorations until you've had a Real one done. They rest on the Surface of the skin, and can last about a week ~ lingering joy from Your Event every time your Guests notice their very own TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS. An experience they're not likely to have any other time. Alison's TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS look great while they're At the Party. And Your Guests can be blown away by the Wow when they see them the next day Out in the Sun! Your Party is the Special One. Here are some Samples of Alison's TEMPORARY FREEHAND TATTOOS:
