Just a Quick Look at Fashion

Posted 3 days ago

So many events. So many people. So many experiences.

How to both live my life and also document it here on my blog?? I'm feeling like I haven't posted pictures from any of my FASHION SKETCH Events in a while, so I'm just grabbing a moment to throw one of my recent FASHION SKETCHES onto this blog. I drew it at a big party ~ barely a moment to even take the photos. So I got the shadow of my hair onto the Photo and red-eye onto the Guest's Reaction Photo. But Yes ~ I do this ~ and Yes ~ We have Fun

Just found another Caricature that I drew at the event where the people were so delighted.

My Shopping List

Posted 18 days ago

You might wonder why I am posting this scribbled Shopping List on my CARICATURE Website. It's to remind myself how Easy it is to draw a Good CARICATURE.

I drew it while waiting for the clerk in the Seafood Department to prepare the Porgy Fish I had chosen for dinner. No unused paper to entertain myself. Just a dried up leftover marker. No posing.

Just the answers. Easy. It's from this Point that I can create any type of Finished Product. Quick Cacs? Next! Or Color it in and add a little Shading? Perhaps execute it with more graceful Lines. Or add a border? A body/hobby? A big Fish!

Or I could even take this idea through a major production in the Studio. I could model it with Pastels. Or alla prima Oil Painting. Or a layered Oil Painting. I could put him in a Scene. And Office. A Desk. A Library. Or more appropriately ~ a Brightly Colored Fish Market!

But first it has to Start Here. With the Vision. The CARICATURE.

Trying On Different Styles

Posted 19 days ago

The intriguing thing about the Digital Caricatures is that there are so many things to try. Like this one. Still playing around with this Procreate App, I used one of the Reaction Photos I had taken at a previous event. Hmmmmm...... I thought the Flower Background was Great! Until I tried the Halftone Background ~ which felt even Better! I love doing this!
