13MichelleW7b

When the lady wears  sturdy glasses, has a sensible out-of-the-shower haircut and a matronly figure draped in voluminous fabric and when the party atmosphere is comfortable and 13MichelleW7jovial,  then, well then I sometimes  ask , “would you like me to draw you thin and sexy?”  Mind you, I say this very casually, under my breath and in a distracted manner, while looking down at my markers.  The answer is inevitably an enthusiastic  “Oh-yeah-please-do!”  I’ve never gotten a “no” to that question.

In this case, at Estelle’s party (see previous post),  I got a double “Oh-yeah-please-do!”  What a riot this job is!

13MichelleW12b

The Francesca’s Restaurants are always lovely.  This one was in Northbrook. Estelle was turning seventy and her daughter 13MichelleW12Michelle invited her closest friends.  It was a semi-surprise party.  Estelle expected just a few of the family and then—oh, my !—there was a whole room full, about thirty people. I drew most of them.  An interesting  bunch.  One of the people I drew was a cartoonist named Ken Krimstein, who has had SEVEN cartoons published in The New Yorker.  Ok, does everybody know how hard it is to just get one in and what a jaw dropping achievement seven is?!!  Being a subscriber, I was able to describe his latest cartoon, recalling the detail of the woman sitting in her kitchen.  That was fun.

Happy Birthday, Estelle!  Thank you, Michelle.
