A "beating cancer" celebration with caricatures!

Can you think of a better reason for a party than "beating pediatric cancer!" 
I can't! My caricatures were part of the fun for this courageous young man and his family and friends.  Batman even showed up, and wasn't peeved at all that I'd drawn the guest of honor with a Ninja Turtle. ;-)

Thanks for having me!

Veterans Caricature!

One morning back in February, Deb Schafer and I switched hats (literally) and caricatured some vets in Philly to honor them for their service to our country and give them a smile. I drew these gentlemen and she drew the lady. :-)

Caricatures at a delightful 3rd birthday party for twins!

These two little guys had a wonderful train-themed party with loving family and friends! I am so lucky to get to share days like this one with such awesome folks...look at this fabulous set-up for my caricatures!
With a sign even!! Their mom was party planner extraordinaire!
After I drew the kids in attendance, it was time to draw the adults (hee hee)
Grandparents first! He reminded me of Chuck Berry.
Then family and friends...and REACTIONS!!!

Then the mom and dad of the birthday boys:
I I think it's safe to say they liked it. ;-)
Then the dad and his father-in-law sat last for me, so I had to pull out a masterpiece! They asked for a fishing theme. HA!!!! Love the reaction!!!
The caricatures were displayed for the duration:
And the kids enjoyed their cake!
Thanks for having me!! :-)

Caricatures at a Valentine Social!

I enjoy drawing at assisted-living places (this one was no exception) and the residents and their families enjoy getting a caricature!

A memorable January wedding...

This lovely bride and groom knew how to throw a wedding! Their venue was one of the most amazing I've been to, and they had me do a studio caricature from photos beforehand...
...which is why their hairstyles don't match. But everything else did! ;-) I also loved their gold color scheme. The sign-in started out in the foyer during the cocktail hour...which was before the ceremony.
Check out the incredible surroundings of this decommissioned church:
After the ceremony, I started drawing right outside the sanctuary, and the sign-in was moved to where I could remind guests to make sure to sign it!
Now for a few of the caricatures!

Congratulations and thank you to the bride and groom, Taryn and Kyle!

Caricatures at a 39ish---excuse me, 40th, birthday party!

40 is the new any rate, I love caricaturing at milestone birthday parties. This one was help after-hours in a nice restaurant. 

I didn't draw the birthday boy because this is the third or fourth (lost track) event he and his family nave booked me for, so he has plenty of caricatures by me! Below is a photo of the group photo.

A post-holiday holiday party!

Every year, I get a January gig that is a holiday party--for some smart folks who wait a bit for their party! This one was for a delightful extended family.

We'll start with this fun reaction:

Hahaha good reaction!! 
 A view of some of the finished caricatures on the table.

Caricatures at New Year's Day Brunch with Mummers on the side...

For the second year, my caricatures were part of the New Year entertainment at Philadelphia's hallowed Union League...while the Mummers Parade went on out front:

Now for some shiny happy faces!

Thanks to Hi-Note Party for this fabulous event!
