Thank You for The #Techies

Posted Sep 2014

Techies ~ is that the proper way to refer to people who do what you do?

Techies ~ is that what they call them? Those fantastic people who keep our Computers running?

I was just saved (once again) by my own guy. He was in Texas, but a quick email, and I had the answer of how to get rid of a program that wouldn't stop popping up on my Computer. I had thought of him when I drew this Caricature of A DIFFERENT TECHIE at a recent NYC event. (My guy is in Texas)

I was drawing for a Big Company right near Penn Station. They hired me to draw at their 'Health Fair' event. One of the adorable employees that sat down for his Caricature, had a slight interruption. He quickly gave his associate the solution. When he apologized for the interruption, he said that he's always working. He said that they always need help with something. Even though this was a time-off event.

I asked him what he did. He explained something much like my own Computer guy (the one that helped me this morning even though he was in Texas today) does. Something like "I keep their Computer programs working." He said that it's crazy-busy because he is THE ONLY ONE that handles all their big offices here in NYC, Chicago, and a few other places all over the country. Wow. Amazing how much we need those guys. Big Companies, Banks, and Governments rely on these overworked Geniuses as much as I do. As most people with Computers do.

I'm so fortunate to have a Professional Techie of my own. I feel so grateful that I just wanted to take this opportunity to say "Let's Hear It For the Techies! Let's Show Them Our Appreciation!"

Update: I was told they're called COMPUTER PROGRAMMERS. The people who tell the Computers how to work so they will work the way we want.

Family Harmony

Posted Aug 2014

Look at the unique Reaction that this Family had when they saw the Caricature that I drew. Most intriguing ~ It felt like they were Dancing without Music. Perfectly in sync with each other.

I caught it a little bit in these Photos. You can see how their arms are In at the same moment, and their arms spread Out at the same moment. Done naturally. As though there was one brain affecting both sets of arms

Moving Along

Posted Apr 2014

Still not ready yet, but my studies for Digital Caricatures at Parties are moving along. They're still not as fast as the Traditional Caricatures that I do at Parties, but I actually took strides towards it. I designed my own ready-made quick-palette on my IPad.

This might surprise you, but it actually took me over an hour to draw this first one:

Then, I added shading. Perhaps an additional 20 minutes here:

Okay. That was only my first pass with my new approach. So this next one only took about 20 minutes. Much better, but still not good enough for working Digitally at Parties.

And here is my best try for today. Still not ready to go out with them, but I drew the following Caricature with Shading on my IPad in 20 minutes:

For events, I'm still only offering the Caricatures on Paper. Because I can draw about 10 faces per hour that way. But I'm feeling more confident that I am on the right path to also offer digitals soon.

More Wonderful Children

Posted Apr 2014

Here are some more of those children that I drew at the Youth Center. I felt so useful to please them with these pictures. I feel like I can have a good influence on people. Happy. Fun. Seeing themselves through my caring eyes.
