14-year-old Boy's Party

Posted May 2015

I don't know if it was me, or if it was the fantastic kids ~ just on the verge of 'change'. But I had a particularly good drawing day at this 14-year-old Boy's Party. Here are some of the pictures that I drew:

Black and White Caricatures

Posted Apr 2015

I made some Black and White Caricature Samples so I'd remember how to do it when it's more appropriate than my usual 'Wild' Style. Both styles are done quickly at Parties, but the approach for me is completely different. What I'm looking for, What I start to draw, When and How and If I image in my head..... I can't put it into words, but it's easier to remember how to do them if I'm inspired by my own inspiring Samples:

They're especially good at some refined, upscale type Parties. Or when there's some reason why I don't quickly get a take on the face that sits in front of me.

Putting One Foot in Front of the Other

Posted Apr 2015

Today I was hired to draw all the Children ~ only draw Adults if there's time at the end of the 2-year-old's Party.

4:29pm - Me, as a woman sits into the seat: "I'm only going to be here until 4:30. This is going to last one."

Woman: "Oh ~ Then you can come into the picture with me, Honey."

Me: "I meant I could only draw one more Person. There are other activities planned for you at 4:30.

Woman: "But oh we just got married" My Client: "I don't understand. They are newleyweds." Me, can't think anymore. I guess I should eat some lunch already: "Oh, I see. But you are going to be drawn together as one."

They all liked the picture I drew. Everybody was happy.

But when I got to Starbucks, I used the reference photo to try an IPad Caricature again. Today I figured out how to choose whether I want to affect one layer at a time or more-than-one layer at a time.

Everyone is Different

Posted Mar 2015

Everyone is unique. Every relationship is special. Every Party is beautiful.

I find myself in the most interesting places. Here I was drawing at a Party in an upscale apartment near Harlem
