Getting Ready to Draw'm Funny

Posted 4 days ago

Im warming up for my next booked Caricature Event. Client wants me to draw'm Funny. So I drew this Caricature based on a reference photo from my blog. No predraw.

My first attempt tonight ~ oops ~ looking too young. Quickly got rid of it and started again. Very pleased with what I drew, but I started wasting time, getting too fussy, when I started adding a print from his shirt. Good thing I caught myself ~ that isn't a good idea at Parties where I'm expected to produce and mooove. So I quickly got the gist of it and switched to the big pink flower.

BTW, the Caricature that I actually drew at a Party can be seen at the blog post https://caricatureexpress.com/happy-people

It was plenty funny enough. But just because I drew something Funny 3 years ago, doesn't mean I can draw something Funny in a few days from now. Unless I do my warm-ups. So now I'm feeling comfortable about the upcoming Event. In the Zone.

And then I felt like drawing them again. Even more exaggerated. Because I was still in the Zone when I tried to get to sleep

Tame and Exaggerated

Posted 29 days ago

Alone in my Studio ~ grabbed a photo from a Party Post here on my website ~ just to have a reference to draw from.

I wanted to draw the same one person ~ both Tame and Exaggerated. Solidifying in my mind the two completely different approaches.

Then I decided to use the same reference photo to get ready for one of tomorrow's (that will be today already) events. It's for Digital Caricatures. I like to make sure that all my Digital Equipment is fresh and working just before any Digital Event:

Children's Temporary Tattoos are also good

Posted 31 days ago

Temporary Tattoos ~ I usually create my own designs ~ to fit each individual person ~ on the spot ~ right there at the Party. FREEHAND. But sometimes I'm hired to apply the READY-MADE Children's Temporary Tattoos. I used to think Only very young children could enjoy those things. But that's not the case anymore. I am now able to bring some pretty nice designs ~ that can even delight adults. It's fun to choose which ready-made design you want.

They're still not as glamorous and edgy as the Freehand Temporary Tattoos that I create with a brush, but there is also a place for these Ready Made 'Childrens' Tattoos

.

I felt most surprised that I've been doing Approximately 30 Children's Temporary Tattoos per hour. That is a perk. Because even though they're not as glamorous as the Freehand Temporary Tattoos, a lot more 'Childrens' Tattoos can be created in an hour.
