Today I drew for a wedding reception at the Palomino Ballroom. Here are a very few of the 4 hours of drawing;
Last night, 06-13-13, I drew at a child friendly function for Edward Jones investment firm.
Initially I was drawing all the kids, which I no longer photograph when it’s just kids, I started drawing the adults.
Special thank to Kate at the Omni Severin Hotel for recommending me to the folks at Edward Jones.
This is Franco Aureliani of “Art and Franco,”
creators of the DC comics, Tiny Titans, Superman Family Adventures, Aw
Yeah Comics! and the Aw Yeah Podcast (along with John Siuntres). I
listen to their podcast and Franco came up with this slogan for the new
J.J. Abrams Star Wars films anticipating some sort of Star Trek/Star
Wars mash-up. I’d done a caricature of Art Baltazar a year or so back so
it was time to do Franco.
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.
Sunday I was up in Culver, IN (2.5 hrs.north of Indianapolis) for a graduation party for four young ladies from Culver Academy.
