Saturday I drove up to Kokomo for the always fun Kokomo-Con. Here’s my booth.
In addition to doing a few digital caricatures I was selling off my personal super-hero action figure (doll) collection.
Saturday I drew for a private party at Seasons 52 near the Fashion Mall in northeast Indianapolis. Here are some of the drawings;
Last weekend I set up to draw digital super-hero themed caricatures at the 4th annual Cincinnati Comic Expo at the Duke Energy Center in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. Business wasn’t quite as good as last year, perhaps because there was another comic show the previous weekend. Here are a couple of the drawings.
All of the drawings are posted on my Facebook page.
Last night I drew for ProTrans annual party. Here are a few of the drawings;
Saturday night I drew for a few hours at the Union Building at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN.
Saturday night I drew for a wedding reception at the beautiful Fountain Square Theater
Saturday Bob East and I drew for Steel Dynamics, Inc. corporate outing. Here’s some of my subjects.
Today I drew for a wedding reception at the Palomino Ballroom. Here are a very few of the 4 hours of drawing;
Saturday morning I was at Sam’s Club on Rockville Road in Indianapolis doing retail digital caricatures. A percentage of the cost of each drawing went to Riley Hospital for Children.
I was right in the entrance, so this is what the customers would see as they came in (with me sitting and drawing, of course - this was taken before opening.) The vertical flat screen mirrors what I’m drawing on the Yiynova 19U screen.
I began offering the stock body selection I’ve been using for about 6 years at SF and Comic shows in the area.
What would be an over my shoulder shot had I had someone else take the photos.
I have several printers I use in these situations, this is the largest but I had more ink for that one than any other and the Sam’s Club is very close to my house so packing and travel wasn’t an issue.
The banners I use to let folks know where I am and what I’m doing and for how long.
This one was from a photograph of the guy.
Then I realized not everyone would want a silly body so i told them I’d do just their heads.
I was able to donate $100 to Riley Children’s Hospital, a worthy cause.
Here are a very few of the drawings;
Monday night May 6th, Bob East and I were drawing for the Veolia Transportation party at Lucas Oil Stadium. Here are some of the drawings.
This gentleman’s only request was to not make him look like a Muppet!
Each head in this group was done in an average of 2.5 minutes, a personal best, to date.
Yesterday evening I was drawing for a student function at IUPUI.
Sunday I participated in the Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Show at the Scottish Rite Cathedral here in Indianapolis showcasing my live digital drawing. I printed out the caricatures on 4×6 photo paper.
This was my booth space and display. I brought the conventional caricature equipment, the markers and paper, there on the left, but all the people were interested in was the digital. As I drew the crowd could watch the drawing develop on the flat screen you can see next to my banner, between the beautiful stained glass windows.
This is my digital equipment. A Yiynova MSP19U draw-on screen a Mac Mini, wireless keyboard, Nostromo Gamepad and a printer.
