Graduation Party

Posted May 2014

Everybody can do it. Everybody can have fun.

A few pictures that I drew at a College Graduation Party.

I've been involved with so many Graduation Parties (all grades), School Picnics, Proms, Banquets. It's always worked. It's always helped people loosen up after their intense concentration on the year's studies.

Style Change

Posted Sep 2013

It's been a long journey, but I feel like I finally settled on my New Style of Caricatures. I drew these in my time off ~ with some old dried out Chartpak that I had here. And a few Color Sticks.

I think of this style as 3D. I refer to my old style as Cartoony. One is not better than the other. They are just Different.

My new 3D style isn't as difficult for me to do. It uses the same interpretive skills as my Cartoony style. and I can draw my vision directly, without extra steps. And I feel like more customers would be more impressed with the 3D style. So why not relax and really Enjoy doing my work ~ I hope it feels this easy when I'm drawing in person at an event.

BTW, I surfed the web to find pictures of faces for my reference photos. The first picture here was one of those Wow experiences for me. Because i felt like it was the very face that had super-intrigued me when I was a child ~ on the cover of a National Geographic Magazine. I had kept that magazine around for years because of those haunting eyes. And then, here, out of the blue, it was looking right at me again. Never read the article, though. I just looked at the cover of the magazine for many years.

Fancy Speed Drawing

Posted Dec 2012

We went for Speed at this Party. Because I couldn't give my client as much time as she wanted. She called after I was already booked for later party.

Here are a few pictures that came out. How would you look if you were a Cartoon?

I feel like the fancy mats helped to Upscale the drawings:

Kitefly

Posted Sep 2009

The Mayor of Sagg Main Beach is so good to me. Actually, I see him being welcoming to All the good people who go there.

Once again, I drew at the Kitefly this past summer. He sent me a photo of one of the beautiful people holding the Caricature that I drew there on the beach:
