Drawing with Joe Bluhm

This was the best event ever! The client gave us paper. Really good paper too (cardstock). Extended us twice! For a full hour. Tipped us each $50, and oh yeah I got to draw next to some guy named Joe Bluhm. Joes sketches that night were AMAZING!!! (You get 3 exclamation marks Joe) Every one he did was funny, and rendered in black prismacolor. So they looked awesome, and I learned alot. I tried as much as a could to exaggerate, and push my sketch the farthest it has ever gone. We had a great time, feedeing off of each others energy, joking around with our models, and making fun of each other. If you get a chance check out his blog and see if he put up his yet. If not send him irritated messages till he does.

When I drew the outline of the guy on the left I thought it looked like a nose and just went with it. When he saw it he started swearing at me asking, "What the @#$% is this?" I told him it was his face.












She only had teeth on one side of her mouth. Can you guess which half? Maybe she's saving up for the rest.


This guy was way gay. His friends asked me to make sure that you could tell.

gabe, i like these but i don't think the african-a,merican females you draw look black! they lok like white women and not because it's drawn on white paper...but because there is something missing cuz when i look at the portrait without looking at the photograph of the client/model i think the person is caucasian....hmmm, maybe you should practice drawing portraits of afro-americans...and then try doing a caricature.

and by the way stop insulting these people! you have their image posted on the internet... they let you take their photograph in good faith and you are being very unprofessional.
listen to your sister...:)

I ask them everytime, "Can I take your picture and make fun of you online?" And before I can finish my sentence. they jump up give me a running high five and say " Sure mister caricature man, please do, oh please DO!" Then they make sure to smile so I can get a picture of their missing teeth.
