Wedding Caricatures in Delaware Contemporary Art museum

This caricature artist was drawing in art museum recently; not for the walls of said establishment, but for the guests at a lovely wedding reception...

The guests arrived and kept me busy:

She wanted to be drawn with her brother, and then came back later with her spouse! I was interested to see how it would compare with the first one, and I'm not at all surprised she looks pretty much the same!

The brides came out dancing!
And here is their caricature...DANCING!
Thanks to both fantastic brides for having me, and GIGMASTERS for putting us together!

6th Birthday Caricatures (with a side of Football and Ice Cream)

I arrived VERY early for this event because I knew the town would be hosting a bike race---the main street was closed off for it. My destination was a quaint little retro ice cream parlor, right where all the action was happening!
Got in, set up and did the cute little birthday guy first!
He likes football!
Lots of kids attending so only a few is a girl and a boy guest:

At the very end, I was asked to draw some of the ice cream parlor staff...what great faces!! And caricature reaction! They gave me one of the best ice cream cones I've had in a loooong time: salted caramel with pretzel pieces in a pretzel cone!!

Once again, GIGMASTERS put us together: here is my client's review:
We hired Emily for my son’s 6th birthday party and she was such a big hit!! She was so great with all the kids, had such patience and made them all laugh. Her caricatures were awesome; we already framed them. Emily made my sons party one for the books and I can’t thank her enough!
Thank YOU for having me! :-)

Community Day caricatures...before the deluge...

An annual event for me every year, Delaware City Day is usually a crowded, hot, but happy event where I sit under a tree all day and draw caricatures. This year it spritzed and sprinkled intermittently, so I moved into the gazebo...then torrential downpours came and everyone scrambled to pack up and get somewhere dry. I did get a few hours in, though. 

Even drew some dogs this year!
The pug sat nicely for the photo. The two below weren't so patient!
Lots of kiddos!

Hoping for better weather next year!

12th Birthday Caricatures-evening backyard party

This was the 2nd time I've drawn for Molly's birthday! I'd been there previously for her 10th birthday. She still loves soccer!

Let's not forget the little brother! ;-)
Thanks for having me again, Molly and family!

1st Birthday Caricatures on a rainy afternoon...

...but the rain didn't dampen the party!

Garages can be festive too!
 Mother-daughter caricature!
Had a 50th anniversary couple there too, had to throw that in!                         Clients kept me longer than planned, that's always a nice compliment to my work! ;-)                                       Finally, a family caricature with the birthday girl.

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! :-)

Caricatures at a Philly-themed post prom

This school's parents of seniors go all out!!

I got to draw with two pals, Pat Harrington and John Sprague!

Now for some of my caricatures!

Thanks as always for having me, Sun Valley!
