MerrillvilleQ
The Innsbruck Inn in Merrillville, Indiana has to count as an ideal venue for a large corporate party. MerrillvilleRIt’s a long space, a chain of rooms each with dining and each with a different atmosphere. On one end, there’s dancing and loud music, in the middle there’s the bar, and in the last room it’s quiet. I was set up by the Christmas tree in the quiet room. Perfect! I could relate to people and that’s an essential ingredient in good caricature work. I absolutely loved this gig! I would hold it up as a template of thoughtful, sensitive party planning. Thank you, Rhonda!

I drew forty people in under four hours. Anyone can see, that they enjoyed my work as much as I did.

The director of a private prep school in Chicago commissioned this drawing. He was planning on giving each student a tin of his own home baked cookies accompanied by a copy of this caricature of himself. Can anyone doubt that the world is getting to be a better place? Thank you, Tim!

Epic Air is an athletic center. The part dedicated to teens and after school activities is where I did these EpicAirBdrawings. The organizers said, let’s not have another Christmas dinner, let’s do caricatures this year. Yeah! I drew thirty-five people in two-and-a-half hours. Pretty good, huh? The kids loved it. Thank you, Jill.

I’ll show just a few pictures  of the many I did. Some kids were very serious and studious and some, like Eddie, just hammed it up.  Everybody inspired me to do good work. (You’ll see Eddie’s drawing at the end.)

The family has always been Democrat. The kids were raised as Democrats. One brother called me and said, “we don’t what happened to him, he watches FOX news now and he hates Obama.” A caricature was called for. How else can you tease your brother for turning into a rabid Republican?! Picturing him as a close buddy of Obama’s would be more than a tease. It would inflict some visceral pain, I would think. Looking at this present from his Democrat brother, the Republican brother would have to feel nauseated, wouldn’t he?
A brilliant idea. And it was phoned in fully hatched by the Democrat brother. Thank you, Terry. Sorry, Brian, but, look, I put you in authentic, conservative golfer’s nickers and Argyle socks and you gotta love those flaps on the shoes.

FatmanBowlAFatmanBowlCThis is what happens when I turn the drawing around and people see it for the first time. Men also gesture with their hands, but women positively lose it. Women’s reactions are often so uncontrolled that they instinctively hide their faces. In their hilarious reaction, they tend to open their mouths wide and the hands fly up to cover what we are all taught is an impolite display of molars, uvula and fat tongue.
This was a corporate party on Rt176 in Green Oaks at Fatman Bowl, which has banquet facilities. Who knew, not just a bowling alley with a funny name. This company was apparently full of women who were over-qualified for their jobs. They were witty and self-confident. With a crowd like that, I can do good work. Thank you, Mandy.
