Last night and early this morning, I did a huge Project Grad party with seven other artists. This year, they had us spread out on the elevated track in the gym rather than crammed in a crowded conference room:
It was a five-hour event, into the wee hours, so my preparations included a little cooler of Red Bull! The kids came running en masse and the drawing started. I'd taken photos of the first few, and then someone asked if I took photos of ALL my caricatures. I replied 'usually not'...but then thought, 'why not?'
So, without further ado, here is EVERY drawing I did at this event, in order. I drew 73 people in five hours; that's a rate of 14.6 every hour. It took me approximately four minutes to complete each face. There were forty separate drawings: seven triples, nineteen doubles, and fourteen singles. The ratio of girls to boys was 52:21.
I did not take a break (which is sort of a bad thing healthwise; but I get in the zone and almost forget! Plus a thoughtful student brought me a soda and a plate of goodies to munch while I was drawing.)
