Holiday Gig #17 of 2015 (last one of the year, too!)

Again, not exactly a holiday gig, but a retirement---so, permanent holiday for this lady!
Her staff gussied up a wheelchair for her, and made her a Stooge!
Then they sang a specially-worded retirement song for her!
My drawing time covered the end of one shift and the beginning of another, so I was able to caricature LOTS of folks. 
Thanks for having me!!

Holiday gig #16 of 2015

Well, this one wasn't really a holiday party, it was a French-themed ( I wore my beret ;-) 12th birthday celebration that happened to be during the holidays. December birthdays shouldn't be minimized, and this one wasn't!
Julia's group of friends got full-color-with-theme caricatures, and then I did a group one for her. Thanks for having me!!

Another wonderful couple included my caricatures at their wedding reception in December, in another fantastic, historic venue:
Beautiful decor!!!

Let the caricaturing begin!

And. of course, the lovely bride and groom:
What a wonderful evening! Thank you so much, Leana and Kevin, for having me on your special day!

Holiday gig #13 0f 2015

 Another company luncheon in a lovely restaurant. This group was small enough that in two hours I could draw everyone in color, and then in a B/W group caricature. Thanks for having me!

Holiday gig #12 of 2015...a wedding!!

The week before Christmas, this couple got hitched and celebrated in grand style in a fabulous, historic venue. They were in such demand that the only photo I was able to get of them was as they waited to be announced...but I am getting ahead of myself. Look at this incredible architecture!!!!
Since it was such a festive occasion, my new wedding jewelry got a wearing again (I was a bride of a few weeks at the time!) 
 I started out in the magnificent foyer for the cocktail hour. 
Here's a few I did there...
Then it was time to head to the ballroom:
Thank you and congratulations, Cheryl and Jean Michel!!!
This event came through Gigmasters and Cheryl left me some very appreciated feedback:

Emily was simply amazing. Everyone (from 3-85) enjoyed her artwork and it was a big hit at our wedding. I can't tell you how many people told me how much they loved the pictures. My husband and I will cherish the portraits that she did of us. I can definitely recommend her, she was great.

Holiday gig #11 of 2015...


I draw for this group every year. They are like old friends now! 
The gig came to me originally through a caricaturist friend who sadly passed away last year, Bob Miele. The client and I miss him and his humor, along with many, many others.

Holiday gig #10 of 2015...

...was a corporate holiday luncheon held in this space, courtesy of the-nose.com. I've done events in the grand ballroom area of this venue but I'd never seen the top floor before. 
Pretty nice!

Holiday gig #9 of 2015...

...was for some eye surgeons and their staff. Working eyeballs are necessary equipment for a caricaturist---so I told them I hypothetically appreciated their skills just as they appreciated mine!

Holiday Party #8 of 2015

This party was the holiday gathering of a sisterhood of emergency room nurses, they've been through so much together---how nice to spend a pleasant evening together drinking sangria and being drawn.  I had time to do full-color caricatures with themes for these ladies!
Caricatures with their subjects and this artist.

You can see the hostess's hubby's caricature on the table above, so we remedied that:
As you can see, the dogs got caricatures too! 
The hostess wanted to be drawn with Grandmother, a photo of a mystery woman (with an awesome resting bitch face...i.e. stern expression ;-)  who accompanies her everywhere. THAT was fun to do!!!
Below: the reaction!!!!!
My easel was ensconced in her kitchen nook:
Thanks to Gigmasters for another wonderful client. :-) Here's her review:
We had such a wonderful fun time with Emily! She was just as excited as I was to be my surprise secret guest at "The girls Christmas party" at my home! Emily's creativity, art work, professionalism and sense of humor was outstanding. Each and every one of us ladies loved our caricature prints! Emily is VERY talented. Emily made sure each individual print was detailed, fun and very personalized! A unique take home gift that will always remind us of what a hysterical and fun time we all had that holiday girls party!
