Brownie Troop gets caricatures at the pool!

At a year-end party for a local troop at a community pool, I drew all the girls first. Here are two of them: 
 ...then some brothers!
 then the leader!
The pool manager liked my work enough to ask me to come back two nights later, for a summer pool party for the members! :-)

Caricatures at a three-day Biotech convention!

One sunny, hot morning in June, I found myself at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, ready to represent a local biotech caricaturing an international audience of professionals as SUPERHEROES!
I drew and copied the bodies beforehand, along with the company logo, and then added the faces. The time it took me to do each person's caricature, was also exactly the time needed by Vencore's team to explain what their company is all about. :-)
Yes, the men outnumbered the ladies...but I drew some super-heroines too!
This lady immediately made it her Instagram profile pic!
A few more guys:
I drew folks from all over the globe: The Netherlands, the UK, France, India, Korea, and of course places all over the USA. 
This is a two-headed American superhero!
There was lots of laughter, photo-taking, and comments that Vencore's convention swag was quite  enjoyable and memorable!
 I also created, a little at a time as each person's schedule permitted,  a group caricature of the Vencore team---incorporating lots of little elements relevant to each person. 
Thanks to Vencore for having me...and Gigmasters for making it happen!

Family Reunion Caricatures

I love drawing at family reunions. The mix of generations, and how people stayed bonded together across distances, is really intriguing to me. Not to mention the variety of related faces!
The gathering was held at a lovely rural home. I set up my easel poolside and drew the family matriarch first:
She had a whole bunch of children and grandchildren:
Hahah, nice reaction!
 Below:The host and hostess were completely wonderful and hospitable. (Thanks again, you two!)
After everyone got drawn with their significant other, I stayed longer to do a few family groups! How much fan is that!?! (Alot!)
Have I said lately HOW MUCH I LOVE MY JOB???
