Fascinating to Watch

Posted Feb 2022

Hello ~ Did you notice that I Duplicated the face shape, resized it, and used it for the nose in my post of February 11, 2022? It's like drawing the whole face inside the nose. So much fun. Here is a link to it:

Change of Season

Posted Dec 2021

As usual, never enough time-off to go through the photos of All of the Caricatures that I drew. But here's a quick smattering of a few I chose at random. Of pictures that I drew in 2021 Before Winter season started:

Visual Poetry

Posted Nov 2021

You can't think it up ahead of time. It just happens when I'm making the picture. That's what makes it Real art.

In this case, I was at home in my time off. Just doodling. Because there were some supplies here leftover from a Party. Some blue paper. And some old markers. Just doodling.

Party Graffiti. I dream up words in the moment. Hoping to motivate people. How about a picture of the word 'Do'. Short and to the point.

The marker was dried out. I usually would have gone over the lines again ~ or looked for a better marker, but no. It will have more impact if I hang it on my wall as-is. The roughness of the lines show me what it can be like to 'Do' stuff sometimes. Difficult things might start out Rough. Incomplete. But that doesn't mean we don't have to Do them. If we just Start, if we just Do something, we are on our way

It's a Process

Posted Aug 2018

I took a personal evening. Went out to Dinner and Dancing. Just before I left, I found an email from my Agent requesting Fashion Sketch Samples for a Client that we would want to get right back to. No big deal ~ I could just send some Fashion Sketches that I previously made. But it's not as easy as that. She said he wants a different Style than I usually draw. She said No enlarged head and Not cartoony.

I could do that. I Enjoy doing that too. Fashion Sketches, as well as Caricatures, are Exaggerations. But a completely different kind. A completely different mindset. I used to do lots of those.

Soooo...... I got to work on them when After I came in from Rhumba Dancing! When I thought I was going to be ending my long day.

It started a little rough, but I quickly got into it again. Here's my experience of drawing Fashion Sketches tonight. From random photographs that I found on-line.

Having had so many experiences of Drawing at Events, I was able to impose the Reality of what would be happening at the Event. I am a Party Artist. Guests don't have to be professional Models. They don't have to stay perfectly still. I knew I would be working with happy moving Guests and I would only have about 6 minutes to Complete each drawing.

At first, I had some ostentatious ideas about flowing lines blah blah blah. Then Reality set in as I tried to draw the tough pose of the first girl. It was Not a graceful pose. This is actually my 2nd pass on this one. I was copying the pose while trying Not to use things like negative spaces or being too literal ~ because that's how it will be at the Event. This picture was feeling stiff and I was doing too much thinking:

For my 2nd picture, I decided to make up my own pose. But I felt like I was strangling this one too. Came out okaaaayyyy, but it took too long. And it still has a stiff feel to it. I was thinking that I would know what I'm doing before the Event, but for now, I was trying to 'ready-design' at the same time as I was drawing:

This 3rd picture is a mix of the first 2 approaches. BTW ~ this was the last leg (hahaha ~ I made a pun) ~ This was the last leg for this blue Marker. I could barely finish the pants. I'll get my better Supplies together before I go to this Event.

I was still feeling stiff with this 3rd drawing:

So I decided to try the same Reference Photo again. Ahah ~ The change is happening. I'm loosening up. I'm Enjoying Drawing these Fashion Sketches now. This is when I remembered the feel of how I used to make FASHION SKETCHES. The picture isn't as stiff. Now I'm feeling like all I have to do is to keep practicing in this Style, and I'll be fine at the Event.

The next picture might be my Favorite one of the bunch. At this point, I was feeling Very Comfortable. Very little in the way of Predraw. This sort of ability usually pops up when the Event is going smoothly and People are warming up to the Activity.

So I made another picture. In this case, a black Color Stick was more appropriate at some spots than a Marker would be. So I will bring Both Colored Markers And Color Sticks to this FASHION DRAWING Event.

I know that we usually get 'naturally fashioned' people ~ even at FASHION SKETCH Events. Many of them don't show up in Designer Clothes ~ but that's a Fashion too. And they all choose their clothes because they want to look good in them.

I also didn't want tonight's practicing to be only Women. So I chose a Man to draw next.

This time I went right into that smooth Fashion Sketch Approach. I was feeling so happy with the way things were going that I forgot about not getting Cartoony by the time I got down to the Shoes. This picture is still FASHION SKETCH Material. But if the Audience gives me the Wow Reaction that I usually get with my Cartoony Fun Party Attitude Pictures, I might feel tempted to Keep them Laughing. Getting Wilder and Wilder in subsequent pictures.

So for this Upcoming Event ~ in which the Client Predetermined what he wants me to do ~ regardless of what feels most Entertaining in the Moment ~ for This upcoming Event ~ I would have to tighten up on the Next Drawing. Hopefully not starting my process All over again ~ in which the next picture would feel stiff and I would be struggling to smooth out again.

If I continued drawing tonight, we could see where it would go. But I'm feeling too tired now. I didn't plan on doing all these drawings today.

Art is a Process. Interacting with people is a Process. It's not like we just press a button and creativity comes out.
