That’s in Cincinnati, just south of the art museum. It was the closing performance of “Murder for Two,” and the management decided to throw a party for the audience. Nice.  You need a caricaturist for a party like that and, of course, that had to be that famous Whatsername.

My kind of crowd: theater lovers, people who know how to make an entrance, people who do a dance step or a dancey wiggle at the drop of an eyelid, people who worry about LIGHTING. Think of the Hogarth crowd in 18th century Bath, if you can.  Well, I do.

Thank you Clare!

Musicians of every blow-bow-bang variety were here in this well-groomed backyard in Lake Forest.  Here’s a musical couple, for example, she a flutist, he a trombonist/band-leader. Notice how his ear glows.  Ah, music in the air.

Thank you, Liz!

And here are Liz and Raul.  Liz, the hostess, is an accomplished saxophonist.  She and her grandkids played a saxophone trio for us.  Marvelous! Awesome!  I want a recording of that performance!

We were actually celebrating the one-year anniversary of the marriage of Liz & Raul, the  love of her life.

The owners of an up-and-coming pet supply company in Oak Park threw a holiday party for their small, but dedicated staff.  Smart people, inspiring renovation of their 1920’s house with front porch.  Loved it!

Thank you, Bridget!

And here are the hosts who were planning a vacation in the sun:

 

Glencoe is a pretty posh suburb of Chicago.  This was a thirteen-year-old’s birthday party with only 5 friends invited.  The girls were so into the drawings, they laughed uproariously as they watched the drawing come to life on my paper and then when they saw the finished product they just lost it.  I was so swept up in the hilarity that I didn’t even get a picture of the funniest stuff.  Oh, well.  This reaction is what I work for and it was fabulous, as you can see. The younger brother was hovering and did finally get his drawing, but he was not on the girls’ wavelength to get the depth of the in-jokes operating here.

Well, not too wild, just a lot of running around in this kids’ gym on the north side of Chicago, near Lane H.S.  There was a great puppet show just next to my table, though getting a funny drawing of yourself kept them standing in line.

The photo, above, is priceless. There’s nothing like the giggling of eleven-year-old girls.

I drew thirty-two people in an hour-and-a-half. Thank you, Gary!

It was a comfortable afternoon with gracious people all around. I drew 20 of these lovely  people in two hours.

Thank you, Lesa.

Schaumburg is a western suburb of Chicago where only beautiful people are allowed to live and this restaurant made beautiful people look positively regal.  Loved it!

Thank you, Violetta.
