Oh Yay ~ I got my first job doing IPad Caricatures. And as usual, I'm not given more than I can handle. This job is for Studio work. So I don't have to be concerned about Speed.

I hope I'll have time to do it all on the IPad. Because I'm trying to get comfortable enough to put together an IPad Set-Up to use live at Events. But I'm not worried about coming through with good Artwork for this job because I can always move it into PhotoShop on my regular Computer if I get stuck. The order is only for a Digital Caricature, so PhotoShop is just as acceptable. I've done that plenty of times before. PhotoShop Caricatures.

And sure enough, before I even got started, I was hit with a complication. I always send digital Caricatures as jpegs in an email. But this client wants it sent as a pdf file. So I tried it before agreeing to the job. And I found out that ArtStudio on IPad doesn't offer pdf as an option. So I tried an experiment.

I drew a quick little picture on my IPad. I emailed that to myself as jpegs. From that email on my regular Computer, I pulled the jpeg picture into PhotoShop. In PhotoShop, I found something called PhotoShop pdf. I saved it as the PhotoShop pdf, emailed it to my client, and told her to only order the picture if this works for her.

I'm going to try to put both files onto this post. To see if it works here. The first one is the jpg picture, the way I usually put pictures onto this blog. The second one is the PhotoShop pdf picture.


Oh ick. They look the same. But when I was uploading them, I got all sorts of messages of things like the pdf picture might not be able to be edited. As always, I'm glad to be able to send my client what she wants. But I would prefer to have it as jpegs if I had a choice.

2 a.m. - I'm emailing pictures to my Power-Point client. 9 a.m. - Ring, ring - me: Good Morning

client: "fantastic job. listen, because of snowdates, I have another day before the presentation. Can you do another picture?"

me, thinking that I have a 1:30 appointment at the spa, and a 3:30 appointment with my trainer, and I'm on to cook dinner for company tonight....: "Sure. What do you have in mind?"

client: "one face leaning forward on muscular arms......" My client is UP. Talking faaaast. Snap snap, so many ideas...... "Good Morning......"

We hang up, I go to wake up, morning routine..... Luckily I didn't start the picture yet, when,

Ring, ring - "Hi! What's up?"

client: "Could we make that a 2-person Caricature? The first guy leaning over a brick wall. He's in the U.S. - talking to our associate in the U.K - You'd have the Atlantic Ocean in there, and a phone in his hand ..................... ......................... ........................."

then later, middle of the night - I draw the picture first in pencil, then in marker. While erasing the pencil for this upbeat picture, I flip on a movie - Ahhhh "Escape From Alcatraz". Point, Counterpoint.

Crazy day, Wild night, and I'm just sitting here alone. It's a good life:

Update: Aaaahhh, it's all worth it. Here's the email that I woke up to today: "Alison, I want to thank you for an extraordinary job. My presentation went brilliantly and your slides were gut busters. That you so much for your professionalism and talent." Me: Smiling
