Anything can be Caricatured

Posted Dec 2013

Not just faces. At this event for a Liquor Store, my client asked me to draw the outside of the Store. So there I was, set up in a Parking Lot, and coming up with this design.

It was okay out there ~ very little traffic :-) But it started to get cold. So I came home after the event to see that one of my initial idea had been forgotten. Because I started hurrying to get back inside the warm store to draw the people. I planned on using the 'notice me' trick of putting red in the center of the picture. By coloring the awning the red/white/blue brighter than it really was. Oh. Yellow/green has a good feel to it, but I had planned on that red/white/blue. So I added it here if PhotoShop. Just to see. And yes ~ it is better.

Anyway, my client did like the yellow/green picture just fine. Later during the event, he asked me to draw the inside of the place ~ where he had his 'Party' set up. I managed to include him in my design. Like the maestro conducting the event. So much more is said in a Real Caricature than in a Photographic Representation of a scene.

Real Art is made by People who are Alive.

Bloomberg Inc

Posted Feb 2013

I was recently drawing at a breakfast for Bloomberg Inc. While I drew, the guests, I listened to the speeches that the guests were watching. Apparently, people were being honored for helping others. Some people were local. Some flew in just for this event. Washington DC...... They were all so nice. And Up. So early in the morning.

Frankly, I don't know much about Bloomberg Inc. But I feel inspired to look into it after drawing at today's event. Some of These pictures were drawn the same day that the Nemo Storm came to NY. The breakfast started at 8:30 a.m., but I left my house extra early to make sure I'd be on time even if the weather caused problems (which it didn't). So I was actually At the event by 6 a.m. Very unusual for a Party Artist ~ I had to wake up when I'd usually be going to sleep.

Party Entertainment

Posted Nov 2010

Sometimes, I'm as entertained at a Party as the Guests are. In this case, I was drawing at the very University where I had graduated several years ago. Good to be back. And good to feel like these were the same people that I had gone to school with. Like, all's well with the world.
