Prom Caricatures

Posted Jun 2013

I've drawn Caricatures at this Prom every year for the past Seven Years already. I know what to expect, and we all Enjoy it much.

Faces are the same no matter what clothes people Wear. But Wow, what magnificent dresses they wore here. They love the Caricatures, but they could just as well have hired me to draw Fashion Sketches here. Choices. So many choices.

It's all good.

Prom

Posted Jul 2012

Following are some pictures where my client gave me carte-blanche ~ didn't mention how/what she wanted me to draw. So I did Faces Only. Primarily Black/White. To draw as many people at the Prom as possible. I drew 12 faces per hour. When the picture felt finished with just the face, I moved on to the next Guest. When my picture needed it, I pulled ideas from the Party Theme (Basic Prom) or what was being said by the guests.

I recommend estimating 10 pictures per hour. No telling what will affect the performance. But it's been pretty regular these days that I draw 12 per hour when left on my own like this. And pretty regular these days that I only draw 8 pictures per hour when clients Require Body/Hobby, Theme, or Color to be included on Each Picture. I feel like Clients who ask for less got more. More pictures And a Smoother Happier Party. Just my opinion. Do you agree?

Another Year ~ Another Prom

Posted Apr 2012

Proms are coming up ~ Actually means 'promenade' ~ I think that's 'strut your stuff' ~

Another year ~ High School Graduates ~ again ~ Didn't I see these same people last year? So it seems ~ but to the individuals involved, to the people who are experiencing it ~ their lives are what they experience, and they want to do it too.

Why sing when there have already been great singers in the past? Why sing when somebody else might sing better? There was a song about this ~ I hear it often at all sorts of parties

"Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield: I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned Staring at the blank page before you Open up the dirty window Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find Reaching for something in the distance So close you can almost taste it Release your inhibitions Feel the rain on your skin No one else can feel it for you Only you can let it in No one else, no one else Can speak the words on your lips Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins The rest is still unwritten Oh, oh, oh I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way Staring at the blank page before you Open up the dirty window Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find Reaching for something in the distance So close you can almost taste it Release your inhibitions Feel the rain on your skin No one else can feel it for you Only you can let it in No one else, no one else Can speak the words on your lips Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins Feel the rain on your skin No one else can feel it for you Only you can let it in No one else, no one else Can speak the words on your lips Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins The rest is still unwritten Staring at the blank page before you Open up the dirty window Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find Reaching for something in the distance So close you can almost taste it Release your inhibitions Feel the rain on your skin No one else can feel it for you Only you can let it in No one else, no one else Can speak the words on your lips Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins Feel the rain on your skin No one else can feel it for you Only you can let it in No one else, no one else Can speak the words on your lips Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins The rest is still unwritten The rest is still unwritten The rest is still unwritten Oh, yeah, yeah

BTW, this is an example of what I call "Black and White Caricatures" or "Line Only Caricatures". It still uses a litl Color. On some.
