GlenviewC
This really was a surprise. Very often the give-away that something’s going GlenviewDon is the large number of cars parked on the block. But these friends all parked around the corner. Not a clue. Friends drove in from Bloomington, Indiana. Not a clue. The birthday boy’s parents flew in from California. Not a clue.
I was instructed to draw in color and to enjoy myself. Hmm, that’s not only a very wise instruction to an artist but a sign that the hostess (birthday boy’s wife) wanted all the guests to also enjoy themselves. Excellent! Thank you, Samantha!
These were all good friends, some going back to college. Jokes were flying. Champagne and Kristall flowed. Can you tell from these pictures that this Glenview1was a hilarious party atmosphere and that the artist enjoyed herself? Uh-huh!! I drew eighteen people in full color in two-and-a-half hours.

BrideShowerFriends of the bride gathered together on Sunday morning in a bar to hold this bridal shower hosted by the bride’s sister. The Rail, a bar in the Ravenswood neighborhood, is surprisingly well lit, even has a sky light, which is, of course, where I set up. I drew for two hours: nine-teen in black/white and two, the bridal couple, in color. Thank you, Sophia.

IMG_5895This Purim celebration was held in the Tannenbaum Chabad House near Northwestern University. Some people wore funny hats, kids were running and jumping around and I was enjoying my work. I drew twelve people in one hour. Thank you, Ysroel.

An excellent gift for an expecting friend who just found out whether it’s a boy or a girl! It’s a surprise either way and makes the preparation for the big day so much more relaxed for everybody. Drawings like this are done from photos sent to me by email. The process works very well.

IMG_5810
Isabel, the aspiring artist, and her sister got color drawings. Then I drew IMG_5812twenty-three guests in black marker only. Everybody understands. Black/white has all the humor and you can make multiple copies of the drawing and have a coloring-in party at home. The fun never ends! Thank you, Gerardo!

InnsbrookAInnsbrookBThis Mardi Gras honors the professionals and volunteers who make the Methodist Hospitals in northern Indiana so renowned. It is a gala event. I love this party and this year was the third time I was invited to participate. Here’s a small sample of my work that fabulous evening.  Thank you Mary and Rafael! I hope there will be many more Mardi Gras.

The entertainment was classy.  Make no mistake, this juggler was a great wit, a true theater person, who brought out the best in people.

A University of Chicago sorority hosted a Reading Awareness party, to encourage students to tutor the illiterate. I think. I didn’t actually see that part of the event. I was there to draw whoever sat in front of me in at the Reynolds Club. The were mostly majors in econ, math and physics. Quite thrilling, loved every minute. Thank you, Noreen.
