The owners of an up-and-coming pet supply company in Oak Park threw a holiday party for their small, but dedicated staff.  Smart people, inspiring renovation of their 1920’s house with front porch.  Loved it!

Thank you, Bridget!

That was last December, actually, but I’m only just now catching up on my posts.  What a great party!  IUPUI Chemistry professors and their families huddled together at the cozy Hollyhock Hill restaurant on College Ave near 82nd.  Other chemists there worked in industry—like beer production.  You can see one of those walking along with a dripping beer glass. Here’s to Sun King Brewery!

I drew thirty-six of these peppy people in three hours.

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.

Dogs brought their humans to this fundraiser for a canine shelter in Columbus, IN.  There was lots of space for humans to run around and dogs to keep them under control.  Isn’t that how the relationship works? Ha.  We were in one of the hangars in the County Fairgrounds. Very interesting and lots of fun. I hope to do this event again, annually perhaps.

You can see my little work stand in the foreground.

Thank you, Jeanne.

I’ve done hundreds of summer parties & picnics. Sometimes I’m out in the open wearing a straw hat to keep cool or I’ve clamped an umbrella to my chair to keep the drawing paper from blinding me in direct sun.  Sometimes a big oak tree will provide shade. But the best is being set up in a tent.  There is something about a tent that elevates the mood of the whole gathering.  You might think it creates a ceremonial atmosphere, but just the opposite, it loosens everybody up.

This was an international pharmaceutical company. I have no idea what they specialize in or even where their headquarters are.  We were out, way North, in some clearing in a forest preserve. The tent was expansive, but not so huge as to feel “corporate.”

I loved the feeling in this event. You can tell by the drawings.  I experimented with poses and ways of letting the hair fall over one eye, for example.  You’ll find my favorite drawings in the larger format at the end of the gallery below. ——————

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Shanna. You really  got the humor in what I do.

This is the end-of-summer picnic at a retirement community in Melrose Park, a SW suburb of Chicago.  I’ve done this event for years and have drawn some people several times, like T-Bone and Ron. Repeat performances don’t get boring, not at all. It’s great to be able to greet people by name and to be recognized with a smile.  The jazz ensemble is always excellent.  I love drawing the great age differences from really little to very advanced in years. And of course, the stylish pre-teens!——–

 

Thank  you, Brenda.————————————————

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.
