Loops and Scribbles

Posted 6 days ago

I never know where my studies will take me. Tonight I sat down to draw Lines with my Markers (as usual). But I noticed my Color Sticks here ~ Perhaps it would be a good idea to draw (wide-line) Shapes with Those instead.

I tried different Pressures. Nope.

I tried different Papers. Nope Nope.

Maybe I should stop using the Side of the stick. Maybe I should Color Color Color real fast with the Point of the stick. Well.... a little better.... a little smoother...... but I cuts into my mojo.

Perhaps I should use those Artist Chalks that I bought many years ago, but never used. No ~ I still feel like those add to the Show because people don't usually Color with their Gloved Fingers ~ but the actual picture comes out looking Wishy-Washy and it can get on people's Clothing.

Back to the Color Sticks. Perhaps there's a Colorless Blender around here ~ like I'd have time to do That at a Party. But no ~ I was never into that. So I tried to smooth the Color with a Wax Candle. That didn't work. Then ~ hahaha ~ I decided to just make Scribbles of Color with the Point of the Color Sticks (and a Few Small Side-Swipes) ~ and I developed this Playful Color Application. Looks Happy.

What a Surprise. As usual, I don't know where my studies will take me.

I don't see myself using this regularly at Events, but I just Might swing into it once in a while. Makes a Unique and Happy Caricature.

Oooh ~ almost 3 am ~ I'm feeling Loopy (Tired)

Getting ready to draw Caricatures at a Big Festival in Southampton this Saturday. To warm up, I decided to draw a new Caricature based on a Reaction Photo that I posted at this website recently. Without looking at the Caricature I had quickly drawn at the Party that day. So I could make sense out of this unique expression.

Hmmmm.... I see that the outside corners of the lower lip could be narrower than the inside corners of the upper lip in this case. At the usual double-bubble of the muscles of the lower lip were replaced with only One bigger sphere.

BTW ~ I was only using the Pink Paper for This Caricature because it was a Scrap Paper that I had here at my desk.

Whatever Makes You Happy

Posted 17 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
