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!

It was a comfortable afternoon with gracious people all around. I drew 20 of these lovely  people in two hours.

Thank you, Lesa.

This was a community center with after-school drop-in programs in north-west Chicago.  The party was for the  social workers and teachers who ran the various programs. Facing unfathomable social complexities, they have to think deeply.  They deserve a break.  I always enjoy making deep thinkers laugh. Some family members were also there to help celebrate.

A minute ago I sang the praises of a tent.  Now I’m escalating the whole thing to gotta-have-a-pool, f’r-heavensake. Just kidding.  It’s just that these people got along very well and the pool added extra splash.  I didn’t take notes on what drinks were served. That may have been an influence, too.

There was no posturing, no competition.  Loved it.  Pure relaxation. Pure fun.

Thank  you, Harold.—————————————-

Riverside is a posh suburb of Chicago with gems, by renowned architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, plopped down on spacious, well-groomed gardens.  This was a small gathering of family and friends to celebrate the 8th grade graduation of a boy who was constantly overcoming obstacles like immobility & a speech impediment. He was very sociable, wheeling himself over the lawn to chat with his guests.  I have an amazing job:  I do what I love to do, get paid for it and then, to boot, I get showered by all this inspiration.

Thank you, Dahlia.

There’s no need for anyone to be this beautiful!  And smart and charming…

Face painters and caricaturists were set up on the balcony.  Great view! This was in the Indiana Roof Ballroom at 140 W.Washington. The place to see and be seen.

I worked in full color, which was a treat for both me and the guests.  Everybody was beautiful and felt beautiful. A glittering event. I asked one of the  women what her favorite color was.  She said, glitter.

It was a privilege to be invited to participate.  People stood in line to be drawn and often got drawn by more than one caricaturist.  I, as happens so often, stayed overtime, by—how shall I put it—popular demand.  My pleasure!  Thank you, all.

And thank you, Drew.————————————————-

And now up to Dawson’s in Brownsburg for the retirement party of a General Surgeon & Chief Medical Officer at a teaching hospital nearby.  Medical types work very hard at, you know, life-and-death matters.  They need to laugh out loud every now and then. So, naturally, to make that happen the son found me.

The guest of honor’s alma mater was Butler and he’s still a devoted basketball fan. You can find him in the gallery below, dribbling crosscourt.

But I’m leading with some lab people, who came out funniest of the whole bunch, don’t you think?

Thank you, Michael.
