13LittleHands1On the last Saturday in October, Little Hands Learning Center in Beverly  held a Halloween party in the school.  There were prizes for best costumes given in a larger room down the hall.  I was set up in a charming school room for pre-schoolers and only heard the applause.  I suspect, every child won a prize and that is what I saw as I drew them.  All fabulous costumes: lavender princess, Dorothy with her blue pinafore and red glittering shoes, strong man with upholstered abs, some comic strip characters I couldn’t name, and a family of three girls all representing some branch of the medical profession.  I drew thirty-six people in three hours.  Here are a few.

Thank you, Michelle and Catherine!————————

13Synag1It was a Sunday in early October and everybody took time out to celebrate the kids in this large orthodox 13Synag12congregation. There was a petting zoo outside, lots of pizza, two facepainters and one caricature artist, me.  It was great.  I drew forty-one kids in four hours. Thank you, Hershel!

13YMCAberwyn1bThere were other activities and, of course, lots of pasta 13YMCAberwyn1to eat, but someone was always there to be drawn.  I drew twenty-three people in two hours.  Thank you, Stephanie!

The two girls, who look so serious here (below), became my best friends.  They were at my side pretty much the whole evening, enjoying the drawing process and asking questions.  I love that.

13Bikes1b

It was pouring.  I was set up under one of the ten white tents.  Every twenty minutes or so someone came by 13Bikes1with a broom stick to poke the tent roofs so that the accumulated water could release to the ground.  Good grief! Saturday had been a fine sunny mid-September day and Monday was going to be glorious again, but the Sunday in between, yukk, buckets of rain all day.  It was particularly painful, since this was all about biking.  Not only that, it was about raising money for custom built bikes for disabled kids—as gifts to them.  By 10:30 a.m. when I was setting up under the soggy tent, a set of bikers was 13BikesAalready coming back from their benefit ride. I could see umbrellas and hoodies, but some people just walked around soaked.  Predictably, attendance at this event was low, though it was a carefully planned benefit.  I suggested to the organizer, that it would be best if I worked in color.  Color takes a little longer, but there wasn’t going 13BikesBto be a line anyway.  And color would possibly cheer things up a bit.  I ended up drawing only eight people in two hours.  There just weren’t many people around and those who did come seemed more concerned about grabbing something hot to drink.  Good work, Tamara! Try again next year, don’t give up.————————

Solidarity Bridge is a charitable organization focused on Bolivia and Paraguay. This Benefit, held in the Women’s Club in Evanston, was called “Fiesta of Heroes”.  We celebrated the the doctors  who donated their time to heal the sick in Bolivia. So, naturally, I drew everybody, doctors and donors,  with a red hero cape.  I love doing benefits, everybody ‘s so up.  Thank you, Ann and Jayleen!
