Namaste from a Chicago artist!

Post by AvidLebon on Sun Sep 16, 2012 11:10 pm

Hello! I just started face painting this year (early May) at a local park through a company . I originally found this site looking for information on volunteering at children's hospitals, now that the weather is getting cooler and the work at the company is slowing down. I'm kind of selfish; Sometimes I look at my life and think how bad I've got it- then think that there are people a lot worse off, and maybe if I can bring just a little bit of joy that otherwise wouldn't have been there- maybe both of our lives would be just a little bit better. I'm nervous since I haven't done anything like this before, so I'm reading what I can from those who have.

Anyway about me, I'm an all around artist. If you google my name there's a lot out there, mostly digital art, animations, a couple songs, and of course face paint. My face paints are really weird, especially when I base a design on the anatomy of a person's face such as my owl. I THINK this link will take you to my personal gallery . I like lip animals too (check out my fish!). I'm a lot better at animals and characters than masks or swirly lines, which makes no sense, I know. I think it comes from the fact that my primary occupation is character animation- so characters seem to be my thing. Most of the time they are pretty popular, particularly my giraffe.

We've had two gecko's in the past (house geckos I believe.) Both escaped. Months later we found one living in our circuit breaker box! Cute little creatures. Love when we find them in the places we stay when we visit in Hawaii.

Face paint seems to bring such joy to people everywhere, but to do it for children in the hospital is a wonderful gift to give..especially with your little animal paintings. Hope you can make it work out!

Welcome to the Forum, AvidLebon!
I began face painting at SickKids Hospital in Toronto 14 years ago. I love it. I am addicted to face painting there.
