Wildfire
Specifically The Wildfire Restaurant at Oakbrook Center. This was a corporate dinner for fourteen people. They were big time financial advisers with offices in the Loop. The boss apparently throws a dinner like this a couple of times a year.  Sounds like a good idea.
IMG_8854We had a private dining room. I had everybody take turns sitting for me for only about two or three minutes. That’s enough time to get the line drawing down. Then, when I had everybody, I went over each drawing and added the bodies and color. This way, dinner and conversation was barely interrupted for anybody. Worked really well, took only two hours. Thank you, Tom.

This commission came from a friend of two painter-brothers who were commemorating the death of their mother when they were just four years old.

Babyshower1
That would be the Biaggi in Deer Park, in that huge mall at Long Gove and Rand. It was a baby shower. Definitely on the fabulous side! I drew forty-one people in three hours,  the parental couple being in color. Thank you Aleksandra!

Let’s say you think your dentist is a terrific guy and you happen to know that he loves his dogs, one of whom is deceased. Broke his heart, when that dog died. Broke the family’s heart, too. Never mind, it’s too deep to get into here. Suffice it to say, you thought the dentist and his family would love to see the dogs riding the dentist’s motorcycle, which is also a prized possession. This was fun, as you can see. It was a Christmas card, you know. Thanks again, Carol.

This is the bridal couple from that Halloween Wedding I did on, well, Halloween last year.
https://katherinehilden.wordpress.com/2015/12/17/wedding-halloween/
I didn’t get a chance to draw them at the party, so I drew them later, from photos. They had changed from their formal wedding attire into costumes, their theme being Saturday Night Fever.

SkiersDrawingThis drawing was commissioned here in the US as a Christmas gift for relatives who live in Austria.   The photos I worked from showed them standing in line, of course, and not piled up like that.  But, hey, for a caricature, you have to “pile things up.”  What fun!  I thoroughly enjoyed putting this together. And you know, this family in Austria enjoyed getting this gift and mom framed it right away. (I tried to imagine what it takes for a family of five to get all their gear together for a ski trip.  Ha!)
