Posts Tagged ‘drawing fast’

OswegoAYou can see the sweet-sixteen birthday girl in the upper left in this family “shot.” As soon as they were drawn, they all got up one by one to work their party. OswegoBOnly the eleven-year old stayed til the end, well, because I drew her last. See upper right in the drawing and here she is flashing her toothy smile.
I draw very fast, but—as I often have to explain at parties–it’s not scanning. I drew 27 people at this party in two hours.
This business of getting up as soon as you’re drawn is totally understandable. For the host family, parties are work. A million things to think about.
Thank you, Robert. Happy Birthday, Tania!

12HospitalStudyGroup1

This was a treat for the women who participate in a women’s health study at one of the Chicago hospitals.  A family style all-you-can-eat lunch, raffle gifts and—ta-tah—caricatures by that famous whatshername.    I drew thirty-two people in two-and-a-half hours.  This pace is possible when I stick to  lines to capture the expression (without adding color) and draw a few profiles, which also speeds things up.  (See the post on “profiles.”) You’ll also notice that I did not add bodies in an activity and instead aimed for attitude and presence with the old over-the-shoulder look.

12HospitalStudyGroupConniesConnie’s Restaurant, on Archer near Canal, just South of the Loop, is housed in an old factory with picturesque architectural and structural details and textures, such as handcrafted wooden floors and intricate brick work, and an abundance of historical artifacts to wonder at.  Thank you, Kathleen!

The kids were running and bouncing around in that recreation center and the parents still managed to have them seated in front of me and paying attention.  One after the other.  There was not gap, which is important because it allows me to work fast.  I drew twenty-four people in two hours, most with full bodies. Here are a few.  Thank you, Crystal!
