Do The Drawings WHERE ??

In all these many years of live drawing at fun events I have seen some interesting, unique concepts for various gatherings. On one occasion the hosts had maybe six artists including me, drawing outdoors in the blazing, broiling sun. No tents, no shade, no whining. Wanna get paid? Get out there! And we did. Anything for a buck, eh? It was awful, the sun on the paper and the sheer heat and humidity were daunting. At another, I was instructed to sit on the basketball court — against the wall behind the hoop. Where the kids would dribble and take shots at the hoop! Yow! I whined the host into… Read More

Drawing Live as Party Entertainment

THE CALLS ARE COMING BACK¬† — And I can not TELL you how happy that makes me! What a gig — drawing live as party entertainment! Not just for the income, now,¬† but even more because it is just a blast to go to the various events — parties, wedding receptions, conventions, trade shows, company picnics — and DRAW everybody! Yow! These photos popped up from a previous time frame, before Covid, before politics were quite so toxic and loathsome, when we were pretty much in normal life. And it was a fun event, too, as was most of routine life back then. Times change, eh? Sad to say. I… Read More

Trade Show Fun

Recently I had the pleasure of sketching at a trade show just north of Cincinnati. A super group, everyone was happy to be there and enjoying the conversation and endless activities at hand. One of the many drawings I did that night was this one, two gentleman from out of town. I hope they had time to visit and enjoy Cincy — one of the greatest American cities, absolutely.

Setup for Artist

ARTIST SETUP @ Your Event

So you hired a quick sketch artist for your big event? Terrific! The layout will probably look something like these images… I speak for all us who work in live entertainment when I beg you most sincerely — PLEASE place us AWAY from the loudspeakers. The noise is brutal, to us AND to your guests. If your DJ can keep the volume down, your event will be far more enjoyable for all, believe me. Please contact me if you have questions.

Kiddie Fun at Office Event??

It sometimes appears difficult for professionals to come up with interesting things for the children at the office picnic or other company event. Family entertainment can be a bit challenging, since the same offering as LAST year may not be interesting at all. And of course cost is a factor anytime. So what to do? Obviously I am biased here, but it occurs to me that I have been drawing at the same company gatherings for close to TWENTY years now in some cases, and well over ten years for others. It is VERY flattering that they call me back, sure, but the real payoff is that the same sweet… Read More
