Well, why not? Let's do this, I'm ready, Okay. Let's rock and roll. - Let's do it. - Yeah lets go (ethereal music) - So, let's introduce our stranger for today. Stranger, go ahead and introduce yourself, say hello. - [Christine] Hi everyone, my name is Christine. - Oh. - Hi, Christine, nice to meet you. - [Christine] Nice to meet you too. - Hi, Christine. - Where are you joining us from? - [Christine] So I'm from San Francisco, but right now I'm in LA. - Ayy, local LA. - Okay. - Have you ever met any of us before? - [Christine] Absolutely not. - Well that narrows it down. - So here's how it works, Christine can't see our screens, we can't see each other's screens, so the only way we know what to draw is by what Christine tells us. And if you're drawing along at home, be sure to post and tag us on Instagram and Twitter @drawoffshow. Christine, just so we don't embarrass ourselves, Could you please tell us your pronouns and your ethnicity. - [Christine] Sure, she, her, and Korean. - Korean, okay. - Okay. How long would you say your hair is? Where do you say? - [Christine] I would say medium long. - Medium long, okay. - Christine, do you wear anything in your hair normally? Do you wear, like, I don't know, like decorations or anything like that? - [Christine] No, it's usually just down, but sometimes I will add some accessories. - Got it. - All right, so I think that's enough to get us started. Thank you, Christine. In the meantime, Christine, tell us your story. Are you born and raised in LA? - [Christine] I was born and raised in Orange County, but I've been in the Bay Area for 14 years, so I am more San Francisco than LA for sure. I'm just here cause I go kind of back and forth. - What's your profession? - [Christine] My profession is that I am a Circus Performer. (surprised noises) - Wait, hold on, hold on. - Really, cool. - That's such a flex. - Okay, now this is cool, okay. Let me ask you this. When you say a performer, are you in acrobatics? - [Christine] Yes I do trapeze, I do aerial, I do contortion, I do as you call it acrobatics, yes. - That changes my whole drawing, okay. That's pretty cool. - Wow, okay. I was just going to draw a bust, but now we're drawing full figures? - [Christine] You just have to flip your drawing upside down, right? - Oh no, okay. So, tell us more about being a circus performer. What circus do you perform with? - [Christine] So, I perform with a bunch, it's not like, I guess a lot of people think of circus as being like Cirque Du Soleil, and that's the only circus, but there's actually a ton of circuses. I'm more of an independent contractor, where I run a circus troop and then I work for a least 40, different agencies and troops. - That's so crazy. The circus business... This is like so fascinating to me. - I have no idea what to draw now. - Well, me neither so I'm trying to-- - There's so much range, this is-- - Yeah, okay. Give us your types of performance again. - [Christine] Flying Trapeze is probably, my first circus love, aerial is probably what I'm best at and what I like to perform most now, but I also do contortion and hand balancing. - Hand balancing. - I'm going with a trapeze pose, but a trapeze pose based on literally no research ever. This is the first time I've drawn somebody on trapeze. - You are saying the exact same thing I'm thinking, I'm doing the exact same thing. I went trapeze, never drawn anybody on a trapeze before I don't think. - Wow. - So, what, I guess, kind of, led you to where you are now, or like, what were you doing before this. - [Christine] 14 years ago, I was working in Corporate America and I was taking circus classes for fun on the side and after a couple of years of training, I went on vacation with a bunch of trapeze friends and I was there for about a week performing and training. And the head of the circus program pulled me aside and was like, "Well done," like, "We want to hire you," like "Come join our flying trapeze troop." And I actually laughed at him, And I'm cause I'm like, no, no, I'm so serious. Like I work in an office like my life is set. And I got back to New York at the time. I remember opening up my inbox and at the top of my inbox was a contract from the circus. - Wow. - [Christine] I quit my job, I put in my two week notice and I'm so glad I did it. I love what I do, I love what I do every single day, I'm so grateful. - That's amazing. How we doing on our drawings, friends? - I am... - I'm getting there, I know this doesn't look anything like her so I'm... - We don't even know what she looks like. - That's what I'm saying. - All right, so Christine, how would you describe your costume? How, does that translate over, kind of, into your own personal life at all? - [Christine] I love that you asked about the costume in singular. (laughing) - Sorry, costumes. - [Christine] So, as a performer, we have so many different shows and looks, I think I have over 150 costumes. - Whoa. - What? Do you have a favorite at all? - [Christine] So, circus birthday costume. And it's a white leotard that's covered in sequin and rhinestones and it's beautiful, and it covers all the way up to the neck, up to the fingers, but yeah, that's probably my most meaningful costume. - I had that exact same outfit on last night. It was the weirdest thing. - So what ice cream flavor, would you say most matches your skin tone? (laughing) - [Christine] Probably somewhere between a caramel and a snicker doodle. - Oh, okay. - Okay. - [Christine] That's also my favorite ice cream to eat so I don't know if I'm mixing that up. (laughing) - Do you just want some ice cream? Is that what we're getting at here? (unintelligible) - Making me hungry. What do you want to do like 10 years from now? Would you still be doing circus stuff or what is your big plan? What's your life goal? - [Christine] For me charity and nonprofit is a huge part of my life, I volunteer once a week, no matter what, I'm doing something. So I would love to one day have some kind of social circus or something for either kids with disabilities or families with low socioeconomic statuses and helping them have opportunities to do all that. - Very nice. - [Christine] That is my dream, that is my life's dream. - So cool. - You're like the coolest person ever. - Yeah, I want to be Christine when I grow up. Alright, pens down. Based on her voice, what choices did you make? - [Butch] She sounds very perky, very upbeat, so that's what I went with. I went with a lot of energy. - And she said she was from San Fran, but now she lives in LA, I was just like, Oh, okay. I don't know, she had a very LA vibe to her. - All right, well let's send them to each other. (ethereal music) - Whoa. - Wow. - Wow, look at that, so jealous, you guys. Ooh, I like Carly's, that's really cool, Carly. - Aw, thank you. - Carly, that pose is amazing. - That's a great pose. - I love how dynamic your poses are. I feel like you guys really pushed the trapeze angle. I kind of copped out with like a balancing kind of situation. - No, that's quick thinking, young lady, very quick thinking. - Let's hear from Christine. - [Christine] All right, I'll start with butch's. This one is super colorful and fun and the body language is so me. (laughing) I'm always very excited, so I think he got the energy spot on. Kevin's is cracking me up, cause it's got like the synchronized swimming looking head piece. (laughing) - Very cute. - I copped out, I copped out. - [Christine] Carly's is super cute, it really looks like a lot of the photos I do. So, the body position and what I do is actually pretty spot on and she pointed my toes, which I appreciate. - Yes, okay form. - Very nice. - All right, moment of truth. Christine, you're going to turn on your camera in a second, but if you're playing along at home, be sure to pause here and finish your drawing, so that way you don't see what Christine looks like before you're done. Whenever you're ready, turn your camera on. - [Christine] Alright, I'll countdown three, two, one. - Oh my gosh! - Wow, look at you. - Oh my gosh! - Wow - Okay, I want to change my drawing now. - Okay, glitter. - [Christine] Glitter. - Oh, this is perfect. - You did have something in your hair, I knew it. - All right, Christine, thank you so much for being our guest today, for a better look at these drawing, your drawings, and to find out how you could possibly be our next stranger, be sure to hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @drawoffshow. Christine, can you give us a little acrobatics to play us out? - [Christine] Sure, I'm just gonna do a little handstand. (tense ethereal music playing) (group chattering excitedly) - Amazing. - Tah dah. (cheering) - [Christine] The reason why I think my voice is different is that I have kind of like a lower, more raspy voice and I sound like normal millennial, I probably sound Caucasian cause I'm born and raised in orange County.
