You don’t plug it in, it doesn’t have an on-off switch, doesn’t make toast and it’s not good for warming things up in a hurry. But a caricature is more personal than any gadget you can give. It will delight at first sight and it will be framed in a family room or breakfast nook and will radiate good feelings and best wishes over the years.

That means “Happy Birthday” in Lithuanian. At this lovely party in Lemont I drew twenty-seven people in full color in three hours. As you can see, the bag idea is catching on. I drew the birthday girl with her husband in the center panel and her two kids on the side panels—a sort of triptych.

An excellent gift for an expecting friend who just found out whether it’s a boy or a girl! It’s a surprise either way and makes the preparation for the big day so much more relaxed for everybody. Drawings like this are done from photos sent to me by email. The process works very well.

He hunts and she shops. Both with style and vengeance. This drawing was a 50th anniversary gift from an admiring family friend. Good ideas make good drawings. I loved working on this project. Thank you, Karey.

The man who commissioned the drawing of Béla Fleck’s family (previous post) liked that drawing so much that he decided this was a great gift idea. His son had gotten married that year and he thought, a caricature of the bride and groom would make an excellent Christmas present. And so it does! I got an email saying the newly weds loved it.Yeah!

Since they’re famous musicians with numerous performances on YouTube, this project was easy. Seeing people in motion, from different angles, makes my work easier and most enjoyable. An uncle of Ms Washburn’s commissioned this drawing as a Christmas present.

The director of a private prep school in Chicago commissioned this drawing. He was planning on giving each student a tin of his own home baked cookies accompanied by a copy of this caricature of himself. Can anyone doubt that the world is getting to be a better place? Thank you, Tim!
