Right now, I'm becoming very busy with the project. Quite hectic. A happy hell at a studio. Sketching outside is my "coffee break" and "enjoy sunshine" at the moment. Now, this week topic is "Sketch and Remeber."
I have to confess that I'm so poor at remembering people's names. Didn't you have a bad experience? I have.
I found a solution!!! Sketching!!! Today, I sketch to memorize anything.
When I attend a conference or a meeting, I sketch attendances. Of course, the mood is serious at a table. Often we come together even with unknown faces. BUT once, I start sketching, people's sneak eyes come to my hands. They shower smile and surprise on me.
Not only at meetings, I sketch people in order to memorize names. Usually, I ask a model to sign it with block letters, too. Most people got puzzled with my ask, saying, "Oh, this is your work(=you should sign it)." But people happily sign my work and some people take photos of my work. These people will not know, oral language is not my language. Drawing and painting is my language.

First, Ms Candice DeVille is a very cute and fashionable lady and judge. This young model and talented lady is so fond of 50's stuff. Then, she has become an expert. Wow, enthusiasm opens a door. In addition, her name has a Japanese word, "Kawaii" means "pretty and cute." It tickles me.Second, Ms Liesel Knievel is a very unique, humorous and witty entertainer. She is the professional for gigs, shows, pubs and so ons. The local residents ran a fashion show. Her talk brilliantly pulled out the beauty of the residents' walk. Furthermore, her humour gave us a lot of shining healthy laugh.But without sketches, I cannot remember their names.
It's worth trying and highly recommendable, even though my school teachers were not happy with it?!
Moreover, models will remember me, too. Yes, we know each other through sketches. Sure, that's the beauty of quick sketches that open anyone's heart.
OK, the answer for "Your Face" is Josemari.
Thank you for many right answers. Was it easy? Hopefully, my drawing has successfully captured him.I've been searching for a next victim in between busy work.
Friends, happy painting and drawing!
