National Night Out Caricatures--- in a far away locale....

My next gig required a ride on an airplane.
This artist decided to start a new venture in her career, in Las Vegas, of all places, but that will be the subject of the next blog post.  ;-)
The night before that,  though, I did a outdoor caricature gig, alongside my dear colleague, Celestia...in the summer....near LAS VEGAS...HOT HOT HOTTTTT....and I survived!!!

Campground Caricatures!

How about a gig in THIS tranquil locale? Beautiful, isn't it?
However, my gig wasn't on the river bank, but in the campground's air-conditioned clubhouse overlooking the pool:
...and it's one I enjoy doing every year through Entertaining ConXections---and the caricature-loving campground owners (who have their own drawings framed and hanging up in the concessions area:)
Here's a few of the faces from near and far who come to this idyllic peaceful place. :-)

Pokemon Birthday Party Caricatures

Check out this backyard: this is a lucky boy with a summer birthday and a mom who's into incredibly fun parties!
She even provided custom paper for me to draw on! What a blast! She also bribed a tween girl to supervise the "pokemon card sign-up sheet" for my caricatures. 
Below: the birthday boy with Pikachu!
This was another huuuuge party with dozens of kids and activity, (water slide!!!!!!) so I kept busy drawing and not photographing. Couldn't resist getting a shot of this little one, though!
Thanks to the-Nose.com!

A Mousy First Birthday Party!

Mickey has long been a classic theme for little ones' 1st birthday parties...
There's the birthday boy in full color, with the Mouse himself.
He had so many little friends at his party that I couldn't take any photos, or I wouldn't have been able to draw them all in the time allotted (I drew Mickey, on every one too!)
So, at the end I was able to get this one pic of an adorable guest. :-)
Thank you for having me!!!

Community Day caricatures on the river!

Every summer, I do this event...it's usually hot...but I love it and the people have greeeeat faces there!


Can you smell the pony manure behind my spot??? 

Below, early morning before the crowds arrive. You can see why it's one of my favorite gigs....my easel and I are right on the Delaware River.

Team member Appreciation Caricatures

Weekday-workplace gigs are not as common for me as weekend-party ones, but they sure are a bright spot in the day for the employees! This was for the team at an assisted-living residence,  and lots of them were big fans of wine for some reason!
...and one was a Pokeball fan. :-)
Oh heck, here's ALL of the caricatures I drew that afternoon!

Anniversary party for senior citizens' residence!

This was a two-parter...an afternoon session where I drew in a welcoming foyer, (above) and later, an evening session in a ballroom. Yes , I know my arrow is pointing the wrong way. 
And do I love doing the character in older faces!


The evening session was Broadway-themed with a live band playing! How fun is that!



Here is their reaction! I love that you can see others' reactions too!
Here's one I saw on a table on my way out. This place is one of my favorite gigs. :-)

Soccer-themed 10th Birthday Party Caricatures!

Soccer is one popular sport! I've done more soccer parties than football parties (hmmm.)
She even had soccer cakes!
As per my custom, I drew all the kids first and then had time for some grown-ups (hey hey!)

and don't forget the grandpa with the cigar!!!

Another company picnic: two in one week!

This one was held in someone's backyard!!!
                 My subjects had to cross a little bridge over a pond to get their caricature!!

Expectant mothers are fun to draw (if I am sure they are pregnant--but that's a whole other story!) This mom told me they were expecting TWINS!

Company Picnic caricatures!

Caricatures are a classic entertainment at company picnics:
and this caricaturist loves the vibe at company picnics!
