A Shame-free Life

Posted 14 hours ago

Did I ever post this Caricature yet? I drew it months ago, just scribbling around while watching Whitney Thorne speak online after watching her Inspiring TV shows.

My original sketch has been physically hanging on the wall in my office.

I keep a folder of paper in my car ~ along with leftover markers that I wouldn't use anymore at Events. I usually use it when I want to draw pictures in my car, but sometimes I bring it in with me to Starbucks or something.

It got Full again today. I looked at some of the pictures that I had previously drawn, and I felt happy to see a batch of Fashion Sketches that I drew for myself inside the car folder. I probably made them a while back ~ based on random photos ~ as Warm-Ups for before going in to handle Party where I would have been drawing Fashion Sketches.

Except the one with the (2) heads. I'm guessing that I would have drawn that one while waiting for a Bus or a Train. It looks like I was using a traveling-person as reference.

I Looove drawing Fashion Sketches. Looking at Fashion. It's a girl-thing.

Pretty

Posted 29 days ago

It's sad how often I hear "Make me Pretty" when I'm drawing Caricatures at Parties. Heck, even if I knew what You thought looks pretty.... or even if You even knew Why you wanted to look That way.... wasn't I supposed to make it look like You? So if you think you look pretty, then my Caricature makes you look pretty. But if you don't.....

I feel like what works in those instances, when a Guest requests that I 'make her look pretty', is to draw pretty Lines. So that's what I did tonight. Based on random photos (not necessarily pretty or not ~ they all had these deadpan expressions ugh), I intended to draw pretty lines. This is what I came up with.

Hmmmm.... Inspecting them, I'm wondering if exaggerations (like the big eye in the 3rd picture) do Not work with this line-approach? Or is it fine since I made pretty lines? What do you think?

Brevity

Posted Oct 2019

Kept my Caricatures really brief. That's what my Client requested. Black and White. 8 1/2" x 11". And she wanted me to draw as many as possible. I drew 40 in 3 Hours.

She Also asked that I try to keep them simple ~ Not exaggerated a lot. But, lol, my Audience reacted to them as though they Were exaggerated. They were having so much fun with it. They were egging me on ~ with all sorts of ideas for making the Caricatures funny.

Such a good group of Girls. Here are Some of the Caricatures that I drew at this Bat Mitzvah:
