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.

Sleeping in the Airport

Sleeping in the Airport. Not me. Here is an exaggerated picture I drew of a sleeping stranger. My IPad makes traveling Fun.

IPad Paintbrush

Posted Jan 2014

Well, spent a litl more time on this one. Still on the plane, but this time I included the Paintbrush tool. Takes longer to use that than the Pencil tool, so I hope I won't be tempted to use it at Parties if I'm working for a Client who wants as many products as possible.

Here's the magazine reference, the IPad outline, the IPad picture including Paintbrushing. Chagrinned because I wanted to focus on producing quickly, but, well, this is my time-off. In the last picture I even stuck an extra Layer of pink underneath it all. Not necessary, but, well, isn't Art for Fun? Not production. We're not like, handing out hotdogs at Parties. I like doing Artwork for real.

IPad PARTY Caricatures

Posted Jan 2014

I recently spent a week in CAlifornia. Quickly drew these Caricatures on my IPad from a magazine on the plane.

Last year, I only used my IPad for Studio work, because I didn't feel that I was drawing on the IPad quickly enough for Party work. But I feel determined to do PARTY Caricatures Digitally on the IPad this year. I like what I drew on the plane. It was quick enough, so the next step is to look into printing and projecting the pictures at a Party.

I decided that IPad Caricatures don't have to look like Paper Caricatures any more than Paper Caricatures have to look like Oil Portraits. This poster-like style feels just right.
