They had Fun

Posted Oct 2014

Started as a real quiet event. People kinda feeling like they were just at lunch on a regular workday. But their company had provided a big spread with lots of entertainers. Set up in a large room that was open to their cafeteria.

They started coming to me slowly. But once they saw what was happening, they sure got involved. Happiness giving energy. Aaaahhh.

It's interesting to me how some businesses treat their employees. By keeping the "Living" in "Earning a Living". Since the people spend so much of their waking hours actually At Work, how the company arranges that time is how these people "Spend their Lives". The work is just the biggest part of it. And the pleasant perks, like the "Health Fair" that this particular company had prepared, rounds out the people's experiences. I could feel that these people liked to be at work. I imagine they approach their projects energetically and inspired.

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.

I feel appreciated

Here are some of the Caricatures that I drew at that Corporate Holiday Party. I felt well appreciated. In particular, the woman in the red scarf ~ she kept thanking me like totally amazed with her picture. I don't think I'll ever forget her. And the others ~ a lot of laughs and a lot of Fun.

Oh - the synchronicity of..... How do you spell that? Even though I tried to check at http://thesaurus.com/ (another word to s p e l l ), I still have no idea. Does spelling count?

Anyway, I was impressed with it today. Serendipity. Because I had randomly opened a folder to find some of my Samples to post here, and I came up with these pictures from a Corporate Event where I had been asked to draw Black and White pictures. I usually work in Color, but I was also hired to draw Black and White Caricatures at a University tonight. This very night. It's good for me to see them - as a Warm-Up for tonight's event (which will be the Sam Gennaro Event - a yearly Celebration about Italians).

This is what I like to call Black and White Caricatures. Still uses a bit of Color. But in this case, the Color makes the pictures get finished faster - which is what these Clients were looking for - to get more faces drawn during the hours that we had arranged:
