Seth's Bar Mitzvah 2016

THE ROCK AND ROLL BAR MITZVAH: Seth plays guitar and drums---and jammed with the band at his own bar mitzvah! It was awesome!

The video is of the band warming the time Seth did his jam session with them I was drawing. But it WAS awesome.

 Now for some thirteen-year-old friends!

Thanks for having me Seth!!!
I was treated to this amazing sunset on the way home. 
I love my job.

Bar Mitzvah 2016

This Russian restaurant was the venue for a young man's low-key bar mitzvah celebration. I was ensconced in an alcove:

Here's the young man of the moment:

Winter Wedding 12-17-2016

Not all gigs in December are holiday parties! I was delighted to be a part of this delightful winter wedding reception in an fantastically restored old Pennsylvania barn--- it was even a snowy day!

Spot the easel!

The bride and groom went by in a  quaint horse-drawn carriage before joining their guests to celebrate:

Such a happy day!
Would you care to see some of the caricatures I drew?

Congratulations Andi and Phil, thank you for having me... and for this wonderful feedback on Gigmasters:

I knew from reviews that Emily was a talented artist, but watching her in action was mesmerizing! The booking process was extremely easy and Emily was a delight to talk to - you can tell she is passionate about her work! Throughout our entire cocktail hour and reception Emily worked tirelessly, as there was a continuous line. She always had a smile on her face and everyone loved her drawings. (The drawing of my grandparents was priceless!) Live caricatures is such a wonderfully unique touch to weddings - I'm so glad we had the opportunity to work with Emily and would definitely book her again for another big occasion. Review by .
