Less Cartoony

Posted 3 days ago

Here are some Caricatures that I drew at home tonight. Based on photos of people that I previously drew At Parties. I redrew them to practice drawing 'less cartoony'. Because I had had a request to draw 'less cartoony' at a Party. Why anyone would want a toned-down Party beats me, but I enjoy drawing them this way too. If that's what they want.....

Getting ready to draw Caricatures at upcoming Events. Pandemic lightening up. I have several Communion Parties coming up. I don't know what to expect when I get there

Cartoon of Set Up

Posted Mar 2021

People aren't so panicky about the pandemic now. More Caricature Parties are being booked. So I drew a new cartoon to describe my Favorite Set Up.

I can draw with just what I bring, in whatever space is available. And I can't tell ahead of time whether I would feel like Sitting or Standing. If I'm feeling tired or if I've been on my feet all day, I can Enjoy, and therefor Focus to create better Artwork if I can Sit. But if I had a long drive to the event or if I didn't go jogging when I usually would, I feel constrained if I have to Sit while drawing.

There are benefits to both ~ Sitting or Standing. For example, It's better to Sit while drawing Children because it helps them understand that they are supposed to stay there. And Sitting also helps the Artist to be closer to eye-level with the Children, so she's not confusing her Quick image by looking down at the tops of their heads. But Standing helps the Artist's Energy ~ She can dance around and position the Guests clearly. What the Artist Needs to create her best work is to be in touch with her own inner energies.

I bring my Standing Easel, but if the venue can also provide us with 5 Chairs, that's Super. It gives me the flexibility to switch as needed

Downtime

Posted Feb 2021

During this Party, the Guest's attention was turned to the Video Presentation while I was still supposed to be drawing Caricatures. That's not an unusual thing to happen ~ so many important things go on during a Party. But I'm there to Draw.

Some of that other stuff can slow me down, but I keep on keepin on. Even like this time, when the room suddenly got dark. It's a good chance to draw some candid expressions.
