Dermo1
This was an international medical group, celebrating its expansion. Let’s see, what countries were represented? Egypt, Morocco, the Dermo2Netherlands, Germany, India, Thailand, Guatemala, Turkey , France and the US. A good looking bunch, btw. Add to the mix the fact that they were doctors, lawyers and marketing types and you get interesting conversations and the kind of humor that I thrive on. All right, class, what was the color associated with French royalty before the revolution? See? Someone immediately looked it up.

ETHS1b

ETHS1aThe seniors were already liberated. The rest deserved a party on the last day of classes. We had glorious weather and I was set up in one of the courtyards. I drew twenty-eight students, faculty and staff in two hours. Thank you, Nichole!

LaimaCoupleA1
That means “Happy Birthday” in Lithuanian. At this lovely party in Lemont I drew twenty-seven people in full color in three hours. As you can see, the bag idea is catching on. I drew the birthday girl with her husband in the center panel and her two kids on the side panels—a sort of triptych.

Niagara
I’ve worked with Niagara Falls Tourism before. Last time was at the Hyatt in December 2012, when I NiagaraFallsColorSetting500drew visitors on paper. Paper, you say, that’s normal. But this time, at Fred’s, I drew on canvas bags. There’s no reason why canvas bags can’t be considered normal. They looked darn spiffy!
This time I also did some pre-drawing. I took the Niagara scene and drew it—in color, individually, by hand—on every bag.
“Fred’s at Barney’s New York” is the full name. Barney’s New York is at Oak and Rush in Chicago. You take the Barney’s elevator to the top floor and you’re at Fred’s—elegant, spacious, good view. Take your date to Fred’s!

IMG_6368You might think that your caricature on a bag over your elegant shoulder struttin’ down high priced Oak Street wouldn’t fit. You’d be wrong. The art of caricature is the height of elegance—if practiced with an elegant touch. There are caricaturists who learned the trade from Mad Magazine and those guys, ahem, are not elegant. But, ahem, ahem, I learned the trade from Leonardo, Daumier, Hirschfeld and Carrillo. The art of caricature is as cerebral as whatever sense of irony you can mix into your long-stemmed drink, while reflecting on the superior view.

The bags were purchased on line, excellent quality, good prices, speedy delivery: http://totebagfactory.com/collections/wholesale-cotton-tote-bags/products/q-tees-promo-tote-bag-w-color-q4400
