Post prom caricatures and reactions!

Another night where I needed a rare Red Bull...of course I mean a post prom!
When I arrived the parent committee was still hard at work decorating the school.
Then the seniors arrived!
I love doing post-proms, yes I'm crazy!

Company celebration caricatures

 One warm summer weekday evening, my caricatures were cranked out for a company which was hosting a group of visiting foreign employees. And I do mean cranked out...the maximum number of folks I could do in two hours were expected, and so there aren't any photos other than these two...
They are busily photographing the results for their social media!!!

Countryside Sweet 16 caricatures

Spots for caricaturing don't get much better than this!! The party was held on a historic estate, in one of the outbuildings...this was the view coming up the driveway...
and this was across from the patio where I worked. Neeeeeeigh. 
First up: the birthday girl herself!
Then her friends!
 Reaction:
 More friends!
At the end of the evening the birthday girl was drawn with her boyfriend:
and the party-goers came back to get their goodies before leaving!

6th birthday party caricatures!

Being six is fun!
This party was for a friend of a previous birthday girl's 5th birthday! Word of mouth! :-)
I was set up in their arts and crafts room just off the family room---perfect spot!
Butterfly theme...so I drew butterflies on all the caricatures. Thanks for having me!!!

Water Works wedding caricatures!

This wedding was held at the historic Waterworks, in close proximity to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It was an extremely picturesque spot!! Here are the views from inside the venue:
The Schuykill River, famous for crewing
Boathouse Row
A beautiful sunset on the river. 
Inside, it was all elegance right down to the lovely bride:
Once the guests arrived, it was time to draw!


Congratulations, Colin and Marissa! Thanks for having me!!

Company morale-booster caricatures



This gig was unusual in that my caricatures weren't for everybody there---only the winning team, competing in a game-show-style trivia contest which I got there in time to enjoy! And since it was a small group, they all got deluxe 'color with theme' caricatures. Dogs were the popular theme.

No one had EVER asked to be depicted as Sponge Bob weight-lifting marshmallows before that day.
Tee hee!

Sweethearts' wedding with personality--the groom wore coral polka-dotted socks!

and this caricaturist made sure to immortalize them in the drawing! :-)

It was held in a lovely riverside venue where I have gigged before:
My spot was on the covered porch:
where I had a great view of the bride and groom headed in.
Once the service was over, the fun began!

By the end of the night, folks were feeling really frisky!

Thanks go to Jen and Matt for having me,  and also Matt and Nat, the photographers who recommended me to the bride and groom! This is from their blog:
