A Person could get mixed up

Posted Nov 2021

Preparing for upcoming events. I'm looking forward to the next one ~ with a Client who found me at a previous event. I will probably be able to draw however I want. So I wanted to get in to the Exaggerated Caricatures. I feel pleased to draw Exaggerated Caricatures. It's a less-common skill.

But the following four Events ~ all for One Client through my Agent ~ they said that they loved my Toned Down Caricatures. I feel happy to please people.

So I figured I would play around with Exaggerated Caricatures for the next few days ~ until my next Event. Then I would switch my interest to my Tamer Style. I drew the following 2 Caricatures today ~ based on photos of people that I previously drew just fine at previous events. I wanted to get into the Zone where I make Exaggerated Caricatures

Nice. I feel very pleased with them. I can do this.

But then I realized that the first upcoming gig will be all Adults. And, oh, I spent more than half my off time drawing Exaggerated Children's Caricatures today. It's very different to draw Adults than Children.

Aaaaaaand, btw, the Name of the first Client is the same as the name of the Town where I will be working for the 2nd Client.

Okay. I know what day it is and I know where I am

Easy Fun

Posted Oct 2021

I drew this boy because I have a gig coming up this weekend where I will be drawing alongside my new Agent. I felt like I should drop my current intense studies, to make sure I will be ready to bring Easy Fun to the Event.

The reference picture was from some sort of a contest.

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

Ready for Any Type of Party

Posted Jan 2020

Caricature Event coming up for this Weekend ~ at a loud dark Bowling Alley in the Afternoon. So I figure I'll be drawing mostly Children? Just a guess ~ I still wasn't told what Type of Party it will be.

To practice, to warm up, I just drew the linework based on reference photos of Children that I found on the web. To be in the groove.

then I studied simple Shading ~ assembly-line-style. Just putting the shading onto the finished Caricatures.

Of course, I discovered some things by doing this. The first is that lol ~ the reason I don't have the pretty Burnt Sienna Colorstick with my Gig Supplies is because they're all I have in my leftover scraps that I keep in my office. (but I'm not going to change that ~ the soft brown that I keep for my gigs is more useful.)

Then.... less is more. Unless I'm drawing something Dark. And maybe I'll bring along the smooth (lightweight) paper for tomorrow's Event ~ for smoother shading. But I'll also carry these regular heavier papers because the lightweight paper felt too flimsy for me the last time I used it At a Party . and Never color in the whole section between eye and eyebrow. That could make for quicker production as Parties.
