First post-prom of 2019!

My second year doing NCHS's post prom, thanks for having me back! I got to draw couple caricatures in the wee hours, right next to Larry Denburg's magic tricks! This was another event where speed was of the essence, hence the line-drawong-only caricatures.
I slept late the next day! ;-)

Take me out to the ballgame...for a CARICATURE!

 Another O's opener. at Camden Yards...and the weather, and caricatures, were delightful!
Here's a few that I did, using the lecturer's chalk and glove method.

A Mini-THON with Caricatures!

Another event with a correctly-spelled "CARICATURIST" sign---I'm gonna be spoiled rotten! This one had some student-drawn caricatures on it!
The event was a huge, all-night fundraiser for pediatric cancer research, held in a high school. Students who'd raised a specified amount could visit the VIP room and get a caricature from me! I did line-drawings-only,  (no shading) and was able to get about 60 faces done in three hours, yay me!
Thanks for having me!!!!

Super Hero Kid caricatures!

My local children's hospital had me come in to draw SUPER HERO caricatures for siblings of patients, at a party just for them, complete with a correctly-spelled "CARICATURIST" sign!!
It was  a bit unusual, in that each kid was photographed on an Ipad, and I worked from that; although, the kids were in the same room doing activities, so I could look at them in real life, too. So it worked out very well. My client told me the parents were VERY HAPPY with the caricatures when they came to pick up their kids. :-) 
I do love my job!

Brunch caricatures for a leadership retreat day!

Once in awhile I get to do a gig, where there are only a few guests... so I can do GROUP caricatures (like the above) and elaborate COLOR caricatures (like below)

 Thanks to GIGMASTERS! And I got to see some caricature love on FB afterwards. ;-)

Lemony-yellow Sweet 16 caricatures!

This sixteen-year-old was VERY happy with her caricature---especially as she didn't even have to get off the dance floor to pose for it. I just took a photo of her in her pretty lemon-yellow dress and drew it as the last of the evening. :-)
Her party was held in an amazing barn venue, I was in one of the lofts, along with the photobooth.
It It was a great vantage point when she blew out her candles:
So here are some of her friends and family:

The party hostess (mom) was kind enough to leave feedback for me on Gigsalad the very next day. Thank you so much!!

Why Don't We do 12th birthday caricatures?

This young lady likes the boy band 'Why Don't We'! So I googled them and added them to her birthday caricature, along with her dogs---which made it a GROUP caricature! Then I was able to do a group caricature AND individual caricatures for all her friends. Yay tweenhood!
Thanks so much for having me! I was reliving my 12th birthday while I was drawing. :-)

Caricatures with Flo!

Well not actually with HER, but with a lot of the people whose insurance-industry jobs are flourishing because of her being a great mascot for their company! I drew at an employee-morale day at my local Flo-based office. ;-)
