Challenges

Posted Dec 2012

Oh I really want to look over my pictures here. I want to post them and keep my blog up to date. But it's almost midnight, and I have to wake up at 6 a.m. to get to Manhattan to handle a Proposal Caricature tomorrow. Oh.

So here's just two - taken from the top of the pile. I had drawn them at an event During Hurricane Sandy. Saving my gas so I could get to the event which was far away. But they had Heat (Yay) and Lights (Yay Yay). Such peace compared to my house during the Storm-days.

I had been thrown back into the 21st century from my house that had no internet, heat, or power for twelve days. And to make sure everything felt crazy, the people were in Costumes. The first photo shows a little family of Moving children. The second photo shows a boy who looked like That when he sat down for me to draw his face. Never a dull moment.

The Beautiful People

Posted Sep 2012

I recently drew an Engagement Caricature. A Proposal Caricature. Do you know what that is? It's when a man calls me to draw a Studio Caricature of him proposing. But instead of mailing it to him, I come to the city and pretend to be a street Artist. So the couple can come walking by, the unsuspecting woman to recognize that it's Them, and......

the rest is up to her!

The man who hired me this week hired a Photographer to come to the event too - Photographer Noelle Soroka. Her pictures are excellent. They really tell the Whole story:

The girl was shaking as she wrote the word "Yes" into her talk-bubble. Actually, they were Both shaking. In front of the Shake Shack (where he told me to set up for them). Her writing. His knees. I ended up adding litl 'shake-lines' near his knees while they lived their moment.

I watched them, thinking that they looked so lucky. Maybe it was just my insides looking at their outsides, but it really looked like they had it all. Love and money and friends and life. The beautiful people.

BTW, it was funny to watch how they both handled their Joy the same way. After the smiles and shakes and easy-quiet-talking, they both took out their cell-phones and started calling everyone they knew :-)

Hearts

Posted Feb 2010

"It's my Parents' ANNIVERSARY and....." This isn't the first time I heard that. Here's what I came up with (Client told me to include the wine, have them dancing, and leave off the glasses - she doesn't always wear them).

I handled this Anniversary Gift the same way I handle VALENTINE'S DAY Gifts ~ "Don't forget the Heart"
