ShirtA
This was the “third annual surprise party” for Don in Wilmette. His basketball buddies were there and many of the regulars from last year’s party, whom I got to draw again. This year I drew on t-shirts (what size would you like) and on canvas tote bags (if you prefer). Actually many people opted for the bags, which surprised me, since everybody’s side entrances are overflowing with tote bags. But these looked spiffy!! Since I don’t do offensive caricatures, I’m sure shopping with one of these over your shoulder will get you lots of friendly comments. Either way—the t-shirt or the tote bag—this will be a conversation starter. One woman said she will wear her t-shirt jogging.
I drew an infinite regression—at least a start of one—on one of the shirts. Look, in the drawing on the shirt he’s wearing a shirt with the same drawing on it.

Scott
When I do a “group shot” like this, I need to see everybody before I start drawing. I hang out in the kitchen with everybody else and roughly position the heads on a piece of scrap paper. Hair becomes a big factor in planning the composition. I had to draw two people from photos, but apparently nailed both of them. At the end, when the drawing was done, everybody got a chance to identify the faces. Score!

This really is a great idea for a family get-together at a holiday. Thank you, Scott.

Markers on 12″x18”. Each person sat only for a minute or two.  Completing the drawing in full color, two hours, amid much chatting.

Darnicka1
I drew twenty-two people at this birthday party: eight in color and fourteen in 2Darnicka2black/white. The host/hostess often makes this choice, to have me draw the guest-of-honor and the closest family in color and then I’m asked to switch to the faster b/w. This works very well. As you can see, the b/w drawings have all the humor and are, actually, more sophisticated. Thank you, Darnicka.
