Catwalk Caricatures - drawings at Charity Fashion Balls & Corporate Events North East UK

*****

*****
Here in the North East UK we have many Charity Ball events to raise money for good causes. Many of these include Fashion Shows, and there always seem to be plenty in the run up to Christmas.

*****
As well as drawing caricatures of the guests at these Charity Ball events, when they arrive and are milling around in the bar and lounge area, or are seated around their tables, I draw what I call 'Catwalk Caricatures' of the models as they parade down the catwalk in their finery.

Sometimes they are professional models. At other events they are local people, or celebrities such as footballers from a regional team.

These Charity Events and Corporate Events are always fabulous occasions and I love to be present as the official caricaturist to draw the guests and models.
*****

When creating the caricatures of the models I tend to draw the whole person, whereas for guests it is usually just the head and shoulders.
*****
North East caricaturist Ingrid Sylvestre Catwalk Caricatures at Charity Fashion Events and Corporate Events Newcastle Durham Sunderland Middlesbrough Teesside North Yorkshire Northumberland Darlington UK

*****
Whether head and shoulders caricatures or full length caricatures, I have to be very quick! Each caricature of a still person takes around 3 - 5 minutes, and I have to be even speedier with the models as they are striding down the catwalk!
*****
North East caricaturist Ingrid Sylvestre Catwalk Caricatures at Charity Fashion Events and Corporate Events Newcastle Durham Sunderland Middlesbrough Teesside North Yorkshire Northumberland Darlington UK

*****
With caricatures it is the person's face that is particularly important - to get a 'likeness' yet stylised or 'cartoonised'. This differs from fashion drawings where the focus is on the garment. With my Catwalk Caricatures I try to do a bit of both! Sometimes it is difficult to see the model's face too well as they zoom past often at quite a distance away. On other occasions they stand and 'pose' for a while which makes it easier!

Hallowe'en Fun in the North East - 'Spookicatures' Caricatures!

*****
Here in the North East UK we love our Hallowe'en parties and events where there is spooky fun for all the family. Time to get my witches hat, cape and face paints out.  As a caricaturist I go all over the North East doing caricatures as part of the entertainment at events ranging from family fun days to corporate events to parties, so Hallowe'en is a busy time. (I've not done a Hallowe'en themed wedding yet - but one day maybe!) People love to be drawn in their fancy dress outfits, (or or as spooky characters), and I have named these caricatures 'Spookicatures'.

Going for a test drive on my broomstick - out of practice!

3D pop up Christmas cards an unusual activity for a sunny September in the UK!

*

*****
Sitting outside in the mellow September sunshine surrounded by multitudes of 3D Christmas cards is my idea of a distinctive day! It sounds rather quirky and whimsical, but it is actually a very busy time of year for card orders and I'd rather be working outside in the fresh air than indoors.

*****
Personally I prefer to leave thinking about Christmas until around mid December - but retailers displays begin very soon, and for those in search of the ideal Christmas card for a loved one, I guess one cannot start too soon. Three-dimensional cards are often marketed as luxury Christmas cards, the kind of 'bring-out-every-year' collectible cards that become Xmas decorations.

*****
There is a lot of work involved in creating 3D cards. Each card is a highly intricate piece of paper engineering. From the original theme, for instance, a Victorian market encircled by a Christmas wreath, I have to design not just the visual look of the card,  but also ensure the components fit together for it to look good flat in the package as well as fully popped open. The cards are fitted together using tab and slots, interlocking to make a fully three dimensional Christmas card. A fraction of a millimetre out, and it won't stand up!

*****
Once the paper engineering has been worked out, I work on detailed paintings in water colour - usually 4 or 5 separate paintings for each card, which all have to be scanned and printed, then die cut. And then assembled ...

*****
The cards featuring Christmas wreaths such as the Whimsical Woodland range or the Traditional vintage style range are the most complicated. The Fairy Christmas Tree was also quite a creative challenge as it has a squarish structure that can be seen from lots of angles, so there has to be a point of interest from each view and lots of little scenes built into one..

I love to sit surrounded by all the cards. It's like being in a winter wonderland - yet basking in the golden autumn sunshine. I hope it is as warm in December!

This has been a busy summer for Ingrid as an artist entertainer at weddings around the North East. For brides & grooms looking for interesting and unusual wedding entertainment ideas Ingrid's GlamicatureTM caricatures and silhouette cutting are ideal.

Ingrid has developed a very popular style of caricatures that she has named GlamicaturesTM. Her stylish drawings flatter clients, and are both amusing and glamorous!

The elegant art of silhouette cutting goes back in history and has lost none of its charm today. A simple black silhouette can capture so much of the sitter - which is all the more surprising in that it only takes Ingrid around 3 - 5 minutes to cut! Using small scissors, each silhouette is cut out of specialist black coated paper, which entertains the onlookers and provides the sitter with a unique memento of the special occasion.

Preparing for forthcoming 'Sylvan Landscape' exhibitions

***
*****
In preparation for her forthcoming 'Sylvan Landscapes' exhibitions, Ingrid talks about her outdoor working materials & equipment
As an artist and writer I have always preferred to work for most of the time outdoors in the landscape through all the seasons, whether creating landscape & sylvan inspired work or other non-related subjects. I find the natural environment so inspiring and being outside stimulates creativity. 

People frequently ask me what materials and equipment I use. This depends on the kind of work I am creating - the only constant is plenty of hot tea! Here I will show the materials I use to create quite small sylvan works, meaning I don't have to carry a lot of heavy equipment, and I can work standing up thus not needing to take a seat. The above selection of watercolour 'Work in Progress' ranges from A4 size down to tiny images. They are all works I am in the process of creating for forthcoming exhibitions.
*****
*****
I like to use spiral bound or gummed books of paper. For watercolour I prefer interesting surfaces that give a textured effect to the paint. When creating drawings I love to use Ingres Pastel Paper with its lovely tinted shades. I especially like to use a type of pencil called Derwent Drawing Pencils (see box in above image) which come in wonderful earthy colours. Also Conte Crayons (see small oblong boxes above) in very short lengths so they can be used sideways to create large areas of colour.
*****
*****
Although I use a normal sized paintbox when out on daily working excursions, I find this tiny frog-decorated children's paintbox really useful to carry round at all times. This means I can paint when inspired on any occasion - even when out for a meal or shopping! I removed the cheap paints and replaced them with Artist's Watercolour from tubes, which I allowed to dry before closing the lid. A small eyeliner brush fits nicely into the box too!
*****
*****
And not to disappoint my giraffe-followers - even when creating non-giraffe artwork, I still have one somewhere around!
