Company morale-booster caricatures

This gig was unusual in that my caricatures weren't for everybody there---only the winning team, competing in a game-show-style trivia contest which I got there in time to enjoy! And since it was a small group, they all got deluxe 'color with theme' caricatures. Dogs were the popular theme.

No one had EVER asked to be depicted as Sponge Bob weight-lifting marshmallows before that day.
Tee hee!

Sweethearts' wedding with personality--the groom wore coral polka-dotted socks!

and this caricaturist made sure to immortalize them in the drawing! :-)

It was held in a lovely riverside venue where I have gigged before:
My spot was on the covered porch:
where I had a great view of the bride and groom headed in.
Once the service was over, the fun began!

By the end of the night, folks were feeling really frisky!

Thanks go to Jen and Matt for having me,  and also Matt and Nat, the photographers who recommended me to the bride and groom! This is from their blog:

Campground caricatures!

Every year I do an Memorial Day event at a busy local campground for Entertaining ConXections. It's a blast and I love going there! Family fun--but I don't get many pics! Here's the only two I have from this one.

"Chasing Destiny" ladies day..with some caricatures for fun!

My caricatures and I were invited to be a part of "Chasing Destiny", a church-based program for ladies to have a pleasant brunch and then a seminar to talk about...lady issues. I learned a few things!
There were two lady doctors in attendance who spoke about medical issues women face... I caricatured them first!

Then I got busy on the attendees. At first I was upstairs during the brunch, but then I came downstairs and drew in the great hall while the speakers entranced the audience...

Thank you so much for having me, and I am glad you ladies enjoyed my work!

Art of the Bark fundraiser caricatures

Yes, dogs CAN be caricatured!

I spent a beautiful spring evening in May drawing in the Brandywine River Museum, during the annual fundraiser for Canine Partners for Life. They train service dogs who help those with disabilities to have a fuller life than they otherwise would have. I had no idea that dogs can alert their owners to oncoming seizures!

Woof! and thank you!

Caricatures with a French flair

An illustrious country club venue was decked out in French flags and this artiste for a formal dinner-dance for a group of medical professionals.  Thanks to love wearing my beret (and polka dots!)
I was seated near the cafe!
Backgrounds of red and blue, of course. Everyone got an Eiffel Tower on their caricature, too.
Merci beaucoup, mes amies!

Caricatures at another Nurses Week event!

 Another healthcare facility treated its nurses to a fun afternoon!

It was my first outdoor gig of the year and it felt so good to be outside in my polka dots!
Thanks for having me!

Communion Party caricatures

This lovely child was caricatured by me at her birthday when she was a wee toddler, and I drew her with Elmo. So he made an appearance in this drawing too. 
Her party was held in a clubhouse on a beautiful pond...
My area looked out on this beautiful scenery!
There were many guests and I wanted to get them all done in the allotted time, so the only photos I took were of THIS couple ( and am I glad I did!)
I just KNEW from talking to them that they were going to react like that! 
Thanks for having me!!! :-)

The 'Disney' post-prom

Another school where I make a yearly visit: this time the theme was Disney.
The lavatories are always over the top here!
Did this gig with crazy colleague Pat Harrington:
They seated us next to a giant slipper filled with candy and told us we were welcome to help ourselves!! Uh oh!
Too crowded and frenzied for lots of photos and I didn't get any of Pat's work, but I did get to hear him sing...he can draw and sing at the same time. I definitely can't sing, ever. let alone while drawing!!

Goodnight!!! and thanks to!
