Greetings from Chicago!

Post by Gentilesh13 on Mon Sep 17, 2012 1:31 pm

Hi Everyone!

So I am completely new to this but I look forward to exchanging new ideas and skills with all of you. I have been face painting for a couple years...I dont think Im great but I really really enjoy doing it and I definitely want to learn more and continue having fun with it. I mainly work for people who know me but I want to expand my horizons and grow in this field Smile I do not think that there is a large face painting community in Chicago but I look forward to interacting with all of you here. Hope everyone has a great day and happy painting!

Welcome to the Forum, Gentilesh13!
I went to Pashur's class on Sept. 12 in Detroit, and the person who facilitated Pashur coming to Detroit was the Forum's very own Clayton....from Chicago.
Clayton, meet Gentilesh13!

Happy Painting!

Oh hi! I'm from Chicago too! I just joined the site yesterday, and I only know people through the company I work at. It's fun; sometimes it's stagnating when your only resource is one tiny group it's kind of-limiting. One think I've noticed about my IRL face paint friends is that they just about all seep their creativity into other artistic skills; do you do other things too? A lot of face painting animators here in Chi Very Happy

Nice to meet you AvidLebon! Face painting is really all I do, I am however very interested in art. My undergrad was in art history but when I realized that it was not a practical field to go into I changed career paths. Despite this, I never stopped painting and doing "artsy" things, lol. Face painting has been so awesome and I really just do it as a hobby but Im realizing that its slowly becoming into something much more serious! Smile

Yeah, I actually do not know any other face painters in town. Many times when I am unable to work for a party, I am asked if I know any other face painters and my answer is always no. Hopefully this will change soon and I will be able to recommend other fellow face painters!!!

I hope you stick around! Ever since I found out about it it's so nice to have other people who are genuinely interested in face painting. I try to talk to my friends about it buuuuuuut it's like when guys try to talk to me about monster trucks. Just don't get it! I wonder if any Chicago painters have meet ups- THAT would be really cool! It's rare that I meet another artist and don't learn something from them!
