13WabashY18b

Early in May the Wabash YMCA at 38th Street held a celebration for Black and Hispanic teens.  The celebration 13WabashY18wasn’t outer-directed, it was about themselves.  Here we are, let’s get together.  There were table games, sports and caricatures by that famous artist, Whatshername.  I was set up next to some plant growing experiments, which I loved.  In two-and-a-half hours I drew twenty-seven kids plus one exercise instructor. Thank you, Ramon!

Here a few drawings from that afternoon and the reactions that went with them.  Fun for everybody, including me. ————

13Neufeldt8b

It was a family party on Mothers’ Day in Naperville, a cozy gathering of just sixteen people. But the hostess and I had a secret.  I was to draw her and her husband, showing her proposing to him.  The speech bubble would say, “Will you 13Neufeldt8marry me, again?”  So that’s how I drew them.  I think he must have known this was planned.  Yes, he must have, because there was talk about doing this formally in church the following week.  Anyway, after I had drawn them, she went down on her knees, took his hand, declared her love for him and asked him to marry her again. Right there in front of me, in that tight little space.  Really, it was quite moving. What a privilege to witness such heartfelt emotion! 

I drew all sixteen people in full color on 11 x 14 in two hours.

Thank you, Sarah, and congratulations!————————–
