Prepare for Entertainment at Your Communion Celebration

Posted Jan 2018

Hi! Communions are coming up soon. So I'm posting my Caricatures of these Children. I remember drawing for them. And they're sure to be remembering the Amazing Celebrations that were caused by their Communions.

Speed

Posted Jan 2018

Drawing Fast is like Driving Fast. I go faster when I just want to get it Done.

Tonight I felt tired. Just wanted to go to sleep. But I'm committed to drawing something every day. I would have just picked up a Marker and did my Fast thing. But I decided to take out my IPad and just go for it. Just get the picture drawn real fast so I could get some sleep.

I used a photo from this website as reference. Not bad. I just with I remembered 'the earrings'.

Party Planning

Posted Jun 2016

It takes skill to plan just the right Party for each situation. And whatever else a Client might prepare for her Guests, I like to think that my part is to really see the Guests. To expose the real moment to the light.

People feel good when they feel understood. Gets it out so they can loosen up and Enjoy

Just my opinion ~ of course I can't really know what another person is feeling ~ but oh, in this case, I felt like my well-meaning Client might have gone Overboard. She had a huge Carnival at her house. By the time people sat for their Caricatures, I felt like they were feeling Overwhelmed. And that I was able to turn things around for them.

By the time their Caricatures were finished, they seemed more focused. Happy. I even managed to catch a few photos of their Reactions to my Pictures. The Caricatures ~ and then the organized Dancing ~ and the people really started having Fun.

That was at This particular Party. Sometimes Carnival stuff works very well. Planning a Party is an Art in itself. And I give people a lot of credit for getting just the right amount of Entertainment and Food at just the right Time for their People. There isn't one perfect way to design your Party, anymore than there's one perfect way to design your clothes. Many different things can work well. And I always try to be 'part of the Solution'. I try to fit in with what is going on. In this case, the people needed a quiet place with me ~ refuge from feeling bombarded with 'in your face' clowns. On the other hand, sometimes they need me to turn it into a Party ~ for when people show up and they might wonder "Are we having fun yet?" Luckily, Caricatures can handle either extreme. And everything in between.

Note: ALTHOUGH I DO BALLOONS and FACE PAINTING as well as CARICATURES, I WAS NOT THE ONE DOING THE BALLOONS and FACE PAINTING THIS TIME. I was only hired for the Caricatures. These Balloons and Face Painting were handled by the Carnival Entertainers instead of Artists.

Back to School

Posted Sep 2015

Hello ~ Back to School Season starting again. And here I am. Doing what I can to help people Enjoy their Events.

So when they ask me to Caricature people After Someone Else has Face-Painted them, that's what I do. Even though it does complicate things.

I wish it was set up so the Caricatures are drawn Before the Face Painting.

Whether it be my own Face Painting Or Someone Else's.

In this post you can see the Caricatures that I drew after Someone Else Face-Painted these Guests. The Party was arranged so the Caricaturist and the Face Painter were there At the Same Time.

If you want to see My Face Painting, please go to my other blog:
