Project Grad party!

Last night, I was part of a wee-hours Project Grad party that I do every year, along with seven other artists. A Project Grad means hundreds of high school seniors have their graduation, and then are bussed to a big college campus to celebrate in style all night long! I was seated between hilarious exaggerators Patrick Harrington and John Sprague, and some of their crazy scritchings must have rubbed off on me; I overheard one girl say my drawings were " mean AND cute" !!! Below is a view of the crowded room of caricature fans, and a shot of the table where drawings were left for pick-up later: I hope Patrick and John post some of the videos and photos they took, because this particular crowd is always very appreciative of more outlandish caricatures. Videoing reactions is a challenge for me to pull off (think walking and chewing gum) but here is one that made me giddy, too!
