Posting is time-consuming, but I love reviewing my drawings.  These wholesome, fresh faces, for example, and their grateful reactions.  Thank you, Marta!

The Methodist Hospitals in Merrillville throws a Mardi Gras bash for their staff. It’s about dressing up and at the same time being super relaxed.  Love it. You get a sense of the hilarity from these pictures. Thank you, Rafael!

So simple. Allisonville Meadows, where Jane lives, has a party room on the first floor with light pouring through the large windows and a good view of the well-groomed landscaping.  The only other ingredient you need is family. They all came, some from Grayslake way north of Chicago.  But, hey, we don’t turn EIGHTY every day?

Oh, what else do you need? That famous caricaturist Whatsername.

Thank  you for finding me, Larry!

I was delighted to be invited back to draw in this lively space.  This time we were celebrating the Fifth Birthday of Indy Reads Books.

Not only the space, I also find the people who come here very interesting.  This woman with the high hat, for example.  I took a little break in my four-hour engagement, had a little nibble and looked around at people I had not drawn yet.  Here was this hat. After my compliment I leaned that it was self- made and that led to more conversation.  Linné and I talked about education and family all the while I was drawing her. How wonderful!

Thank  you, MaryAnna!

This woman was a descendant of Benjamin Harrison. She was tall and poised…until she lost it, as you can see.

It was the evening of July 4th.  I drove straight from the Benjamin Harrison mansion (see previous post) to Milton, KY for an  wedding reception.  When I told a couple of people at the Harrison’s Fourth of July picnic that I was drawing at a wedding that evening, they said, “Good day for a wedding. They’ll have fireworks on all their anniversaries.”

This Fourth had me going from one enormous mansion to another, if not directly in the mansions, then at least the expansive grounds. The wedding tent with the band and diners was not far from the banks of the mighty Ohio.  This fabulous setting, picturesque in every direction, had no doubt been carefully chosen by the bride and groom.

The bride asked that I work black & white to maximize the number of guests that could get drawn.  B/w is actually quite elegant and suitable to weddings and other “up” occasions.

Thank you, Allie!

The sun was turning in, as you can see, but the hilarity remained at full volume.

That’s in Cincinnati, just south of the art museum. It was the closing performance of “Murder for Two,” and the management decided to throw a party for the audience. Nice.  You need a caricaturist for a party like that and, of course, that had to be that famous Whatsername.

My kind of crowd: theater lovers, people who know how to make an entrance, people who do a dance step or a dancey wiggle at the drop of an eyelid, people who worry about LIGHTING. Think of the Hogarth crowd in 18th century Bath, if you can.  Well, I do.

Thank you Clare!

Musicians of every blow-bow-bang variety were here in this well-groomed backyard in Lake Forest.  Here’s a musical couple, for example, she a flutist, he a trombonist/band-leader. Notice how his ear glows.  Ah, music in the air.

Thank you, Liz!

And here are Liz and Raul.  Liz, the hostess, is an accomplished saxophonist.  She and her grandkids played a saxophone trio for us.  Marvelous! Awesome!  I want a recording of that performance!

We were actually celebrating the one-year anniversary of the marriage of Liz & Raul, the  love of her life.
