Drawing Tame Or Drawing Exaggerated

Posted Oct 2019

Earlier today (while I was Not drawing), I figured it out. Well..... I Felt like I had figured it out. I felt like I had finally figured out how to easily switch from the Basic Simple Caricatures that Some Guests prefer to the Exaggerated Caricatures that more artistially evolbed Guests know how to appreciate.

So I planned on drawing a bunch of them tonight. Based on old photos from my website. But I only got to One. Because the first one caused a glitch in my neat little 'answer'.

First I drew it Simply. Good. Easy. I didn't fuss about it.

Then I felt surprised that I totally bombed on the Exaggerated #Caricature. That's my Thing. Exaggeration. That's the style which defines me as a real Artist. No time for disappointment. I just tried it again.

Tried it again. The Exaggerated Caricature. Again, I felt surprised that it didn't delight me the way my Exaggerated #Party Caricatures were delighting me at this week's #Events. But in a pinch, I would have been able to use this Caricature at an #Event. Especially if I added Color.

Then I drew it even again even. That one came out good, but I felt surprised that it needed a mediumly extensive Predraw. Because it had felt so easy to draw Exaggerated Caricatures at this Week's previous Events.

I wish I had time to do more of these now. Maybe some other day ~ ~ ~

Man's Birthday Party

I hired Alison for my husband's birthday party and it was a huge success! She arrived early to set everything up and then dived right into the drawings. Alison even joined in on the birthday party theme and wore an outfit that went along with it. Most of my friends had never been part of a caricature drawing before, but they enjoyed the whole experience! Everyone was entertained by being a spectator and by being the subject of the drawing. Each picture was so unique to the person being drawn. There was a lot of laughter that night! I highly recommend Alison for any party!

IPad Versatility

Posted Sep 2019

Here are just a couple of the Digital Caricatures that I drew at a recent Event. It's just great how I can resize and erase and use different brushes and oh there's just so much flexibility in drawing on an IPad.

Photos of Reactions

Posted Aug 2019

Whenever possible, I like to take photos of the Reactions to my Caricatures. Delighted Guests. Happy Surprises. It helps me re-live the experience.

When I arrived at the venue/bar for this Party, I felt like it was going to be one of those Drawing in the Dark events oh. But no ~ as I walked in, I saw that they had an outdoor 'porch' on the water ~ oooh ~ uhoh about that too ~ do i have my sunscreen with me, or would i have to take the time to go back to my car to get it? It was like 100-degrees out there that day.

But no ~ not that either Yay. Turned out to be a great Event. My Client had arranged for a well-lit Indoor area for the Caricatures ~ her Guests could easily see the Activity from outside on the porch as well as from inside in the bar. It was all open so meandering back and forth was natural. And my Client kindly arranged for a Big Fan to be directed towards me. I felt so comfortable. I felt like I was able to do my best work, and I felt like the Guests felt comfortable and welcome also. Easy-going.

Here are a few of the Caricatures that I drew. And the Reactions of the Guests. I feel like it's the best way to really show Reviews. People having a Good Time at the Party:
