Style Change

Posted Sep 2013

It's been a long journey, but I feel like I finally settled on my New Style of Caricatures. I drew these in my time off ~ with some old dried out Chartpak that I had here. And a few Color Sticks.

I think of this style as 3D. I refer to my old style as Cartoony. One is not better than the other. They are just Different.

My new 3D style isn't as difficult for me to do. It uses the same interpretive skills as my Cartoony style. and I can draw my vision directly, without extra steps. And I feel like more customers would be more impressed with the 3D style. So why not relax and really Enjoy doing my work ~ I hope it feels this easy when I'm drawing in person at an event.

BTW, I surfed the web to find pictures of faces for my reference photos. The first picture here was one of those Wow experiences for me. Because i felt like it was the very face that had super-intrigued me when I was a child ~ on the cover of a National Geographic Magazine. I had kept that magazine around for years because of those haunting eyes. And then, here, out of the blue, it was looking right at me again. Never read the article, though. I just looked at the cover of the magazine for many years.

Slumber Party at the Country Club

Posted Nov 2009

Oh - This was such a Fun Party. Set up like a Slumber Party, but the girls weren't sleeping here. They went home after dancing around comfortably and having so much fun with the Caricatures. Really confident and accepting kids.

It was a pleasure to spend time with these honestly optimistic people. I wished these girls the Best of Everything, and I sincerely think that my wishes come through into the Party atmosphere - Aaah, it can be such a good world.

15 per hour

Posted Oct 2009

I just came across Photos of 59 people - from a 4-hour party. Not too shabby. Especially since I humbly answer the question of "How many people can you draw per hour" with a recommendation to estimate 10 per hour.

59 people in 4 hours means almost 15 people in each hour.

I just wish more of the photos came out clear enough to actually See the faces that I drew. Here are some of the photos that are pretty clear. From an outdoor Wedding up in the Country. A beautiful day with land and fields and a dreamy ceremony:

BTW, as the bride started her ceremonial procession down to the lake where the groom waited, it started with traditional music. Then, groom named Bill, his bride swung into an active prancedance when the music switched to "I love you so, I always will And in your voice I hear a choir of carousels....."

Then I heard a beautiful ceremony - The bride and groom were told to take each others hands, look into their eyes, and realize that they were looking into the eyes of the person who will always help you, the eyes of the person who will always be your friend - stuff like that. It was so beautiful.

Country Wedding

Posted Sep 2009

An upcoming job is for a Wedding upstate. Outdoors. In the country.

Regular Caricatures for the guests, but full-bodies were ordered for the Bride and Groom. So I got to thinking about it today.

Never sure what I'll actually See when I get to an event. But I quickly drew this idea. Stay tuned to see what actually happens:
