Riverside1
You can do Christmas at home with your family, but it’s also a time to be swept up in a larger social radius. We were in the Riverside2gym, which is a surprisingly grand space, what with the high cathedral trussed ceiling and the stage for the needed celebratory focus. From a corner of this stage we heard Christmas carols in four-part harmony sung by pros in Dickensian Garb. The other side of the stage held the glittering tree and gorgeously wrapped gift boxes. People enjoyed a fine meal in the company of old and new friends. And, of course, there was a balloon twister and me, the caricaturist. This was truly festive! Thank you, Teresa.
Bob Hunt was the balloon twister this evening, but you can see bits of his astounding acrobatic performance at

At this party I saw the best Santa ever:

Hallow1
This fabulous wedding was held on October 31st—Halloween–in a Hallow2formal banquet hall in Homer Glen. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about the combination Wedding+Halloween, but all my doubts were dispelled the moment I walked into the high-ceiling room: black table clothes, black-covered banquet chairs with gleaming orange satin bows, orange spot lights running up the high walls. The bride and groom had changed from their formal, conventional wedding attire into Saturday Night Fever threads and did a lovely lead dance to the Bee-Gees. The guests were dressed UP in elegant theatrical costumes. I drew everything from Bonnie & Clyde to Tutankhamen to Cleopatra & Her Penguin Escort to an assortment of exquisitely painted sculls. Really, this was not a trick-or-treat crowd. People had flown in from the coasts and given a lot of thought to their presentation, and were willing to pay for it. So, lesson learned, if you know your friends and they’re as imaginative as you are, go ahead, have a Halloween Wedding! Oh, and have me as the caricaturist.
