XO Banquets in Wheeling is where you’ll find these exiting lighting effects and, yes, it’s a great place for warm gatherings of old friends. Ilya and his wife flew in from Toronto to celebrate his 70th birthday with friends and family in the Chicago area.  Very festive and elegant, yet relaxed and cozy.  Loved it! Thank you, Klara!

I drew twenty-one people in full color in two hours.

Yoshi’s is an elegant Japanese restaurant on Halsted near Belmont.  Friends of Frances gathered there for brunch to celebrate her 90th birthday. I couldn’t tell how old anybody was.  I certainly wouldn’t have guessed Frances was ninety.  I drew twenty of these energetic women in two hours.  That was a leisurely pace, for me, which gave me time to admire the décor, the choice of colors, the paintings on the wall and the lighting.

romana

See the rope light, the glitter and the gong in the background?  The whole place was romanblike that. The walls—I’m assuming there were walls underneath it all–were draped with glittering, satiny, velvety, gauzy fabric. Indirect, rotating, stroby lights everywhere. One room, equally draped and lit, had a sign that said, Zen Den.  I think it was an apartment, can’t be sure.  Oh, yes, must have been an apartment, I passed a kitcheny room on the way in.  There were draped and pillowed alcoves that people dove into and giggled. You get the idea.  Now take it to the, oh, 99th power.

This party was way back in October.  I’m finally catching up here.—————————————————————-

furio

We’re at the Westin in Itasca.  Dinner was served. These people had worked with one another for so long or had been friends for so long that they hardly stayed seated and kept hopping from table to table to say funny stuff to one another.  This was a fabulous party and caricatures were the perfect addition.

Thank you, Jim!——————————————–

morgan1

Now we’re at University Commons on 15th and Morgan.  The birthday girl, Silveria, is morgan2turning sixty.  Family and friends eating and catching up at a long table, a couple of frolicking dogs and that caricature artist, Whatsername—what more could you want!  I enjoyed this bunch, felt welcome and at home.  You can tell, can’t you, from the drawings and the reactions.

aurora2Onya wore a stylish dress, full of fall colors and October themes.  Her birthday had been at the beginning of the month but this was the best time to get friends and family together.  Everyone was thrilled with the drawings.  Thank you Cheryl.
