GEAUX Fund Me: Posts 2 & 3
Friday, May 16th 2014 & Saturday, May 17th 2014
Here's a look at the Page template I used to do my caricatures on, followed by my artist signage.
Saturday, I went to the bank to get change for the party since I would be selling the caricature drawings.
Sunday, May 18th 2014
Woke up early with a nervous butterfly excitement, partly because I was going to be going to the party with a friend I hadn't seen since my high school days. It was wonderful catching up with her at the party, and fitting because all the music played was music that was big when we were in school together. It honestly felt like no time had passed between us at all! Time can be magical sometimes...
Thankfully, all my art supplies and such fit into my backpack, which made for nice transport and set up. Tanya, was my wonderful Mia Wallace (of Pulp Fiction) assistant, and did an amazing job working the crowd, wrangling people, and $ while I did the creative stuff. We make a great team, and she said she'd be happy to help me out with other caricature events in the future. I can think of no one better to tag team with! Thanks Tanya!

Kevin Smith... Has to be the beard. So this image will have to do until I get photographic evidence from Tanya's mom and Shannon, who was doing photos at Matinee too!
Overall, it was a great party. And it might become a monthly event! Thank you Liz and Diana for putting it together and for inviting me to be a part of it! I had a great, fantastic time! Also, special thanks to Tanya for assisting me and keeping me company! I hope it's the first time of many!
Liz thinks I should bring the Cosplay Caricature idea on the road to comic/anime conventions, and that it would be a big hit there as well! I think she's right, and will for sure look into it!
