Roaring 20's caricatures!

Last night saw me drawing at a 55+ residence, celebrating its 20th anniversary with a 20's themed party (what else?) 
Amazon must have been very busy beforehand delivering hats, boas, fringe and other frou-frous to the excited residents!
My spot was in the library:
What a happy and dressed-to-the-nines group of seniors!



And there was one Dr Who fan, who didn't smile AT ALL until he saw his caricature!
And the one couple who didn't get the Dress-Up memo...
Fun fun FUN! Thank you for having me!

Prom Caricatures at a Children's Hospital


This fantastic prom was for current and past patients (and their dates) at a local children's hospital--what an honor to be there! The theme was Outer Space.
My spot was in a hallway next to the photo booth, so we were both constantly thronged with kids.
Just took photos of the drawings at this event, but trust me, they look like their subjects ;-)

Thanks for having me, and I hope to be back next year! :-)

1st Birthday Caricatures


A lovely state park on a spring day was the setting for this little  blonde's first birthday:
It was a fiesta-themed party, as it was also Cinco de Mayo, so the food was yummy Mexican fare from a local restaurant. 
Drew all the kids first, as is my custom...here's a few:
 Below: She ran away to explore before I could get a photo (actually before I finished the drawing!)
At the end I drew the grandma and her sisters. FUN!!!
Thanks for having me!!

After-prom Caricatures in the wee hours

My marathon (til 4 am!!!!)  annual post-prom gig found me a little tired before the kids showed up...it was my fifth gig in three days...but I perked up (with the help of some trusty Coca-Cola) once they came in!
Worked alongside the ever-effervescent John Sprague.
Now for some late-night caricatures!




I love this school (and my job!)

Pink 1st Birthday Caricatures!

A beautiful little girl's 1st birthday party included my caricatures. ;-)

The theme was PINK, of course!
Here are the proud parents, who wore matching pink shirts:
Some grandparents:
(caricature made him crack a smile:-)

Parents with their teen and tween, who sat individually. then went off as I finished each one:
(you can really see the family resemblances in that one)

John Legend and his wife---no, not really--just more family members ;-)
(he said he gets that all the time!)

More family:

Thank you so much for having me!

Silhouettes at a high school Prom!

After a hectic afternoon doing caricatures at a nearby university, I headed to this popular restaurant which was hosting a Hollywood-themed prom. I've also done caricatures here before, under this same rotunda, so that's what the staff was expecting me to do. I said, no, tonight is something different! Silhouettes!
This couple arrived early for a photo shoot so they were my first silhouette subjects! I never did get my own photo of them...they had just spent a good half hour posing for their own photographer!

Once the couples started arriving, my scissors flew along. 




They're all cut out of one piece of 4 x 6 rectangular paper, into a heart-shaped couple, romantically looking onto each others' eyes. Awwwww!

I cut few of the chaperones too!

I wore my feather boa as my one concession to Hollywood glamour!
Thanks for having me, WCS!
