3 Good Events

Posted 2 days ago

So far, I have 3 Events booked for this week. None of them have extra things involved to complicate my Artwork. Just hired to 'Draw Caricatures'. Aaaahh.

One of them is a Wedding. One is an eleven-year-old-Girl's Dinner Party. One is for the Staff of a Bar.

To warm up, I drew one of each ~ from random photos that I found online. It was fun

Backlighting

Posted 23 days ago

Here's an example of what happens when your Party Artist has to deal with Backlighting ~ that's when she's told to Set Up in front of a Window.

I always accommodate my Clients ~ I always manage in the Space they provide for Their Party Entertainment. But I don't feel like they're getting the Best Possible Experience if they want the Artist to Set Up in front of a Window. I don't feel like they're getting the Best Possible Artwork if they tell the Artist to Set Up in front of a Window. The Artist really cannot see the Guests features.

The Artist Could turn around, so the Light is coming from behind her, and onto the Guests' faces while the Guests look out the Window, but I prefer to Set Up the other way ~ so the Whole Party can glance over at any time to see what's being drawn (Entertainment) and the person who is being drawn would be looking In Towards the Party ~ so s/he remembers that s/he is At Your Party.

The problem with Backlighting ~ the problem with having the Guest standing in front of a Window ~ is that the Guests' Faces are COMPLETELY IN SHADOW ~ because the Light is coming from Behind their heads. I feel like I can still do a good job, but it is stressful. So it slows down the Artwork and it affects my Vibe. It affects my ability to quickly draw what I see because I'm Not quickly Seeing the Faces. It affects the Artwork And it affects the Guest's Experiences.

Acrylic Painting

Posted 25 days ago

Oh Boy ~ One of this Weekend's Events is Personalizing Stationary and Leather Notebooks. So I have to put together a way to Carry My Acrylic Supplies.

Middle of the night. Oh what do I have here? Ahah! There's this Rolling Cart that I used to use for my Digital Caricatures. After I switched to a more Stable Rolling Case, I had put this Cart aside. But it was still labeled with a Marker for Digital Caricatures.

So I took out my Acrylic Paints and covered it with this. It felt so good to take out real buttery creamy paints again. I didn't want to stop Painting.
