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.

abigail2Grandma Abigail threw a fabulous back yard party for Neil, who flew in from Texas with his parents.  I have to word it that way because Neil, having just turned one, was clearly in charge.  He wasn’t particularly interested in a family drawing, so I drew him separately and then later his parents also sat down to be drawn.  All in good fun.

It was a wonderful, relaxed afternoon in Homewood.  I drew twenty-four people in two hours.

abigail3Thank you, Abigail!

ElmhurstLibr1

I did this event at the Elmhurst Library last year and I was honored to be called back.

https://katherinehilden.wordpress.com/2015/08/29/pop-culture-at-the-elmwood-public-library/

ElmhurstLibr2Comic Con is a big event.  Various artists who work in cartooning, comic strips, manga, and caricature are set up at tables where they demonstrate and explain their art. It’s an exciting day for kids. Many come in the costume of their favorite character from movies such as Star Wars.  Capes galore!

Last year I worked in black/white, which the kids and parents enjoyed.  But this year I worked in full color, which was fabulous! Color takes just a bit longer, but for kids this is the way to go.  B/w is elegant, but let’s face it, color pops off the page!

Thank you, Kim!

Milwaukee1

It was Lauren’s fifth birthday and mom spared no expense:  scrumptious food, DJ, photographer, dancing performers,  pinkpinkpink, and that famous caricaturist, Whatsername, from Evanston.

We’re in Milwaukee, at the Nigerian Conference Center, way up on Appleton at Hampton.

Milwaukee2

Most of the kids were in Lauren’s age group or a bit older.  One self-confident little girl after another sat down in front of me to be drawn.  What a pleasure to meet these poised, lovely children!  You can see from the drawings that I really liked their style and good humor.  (Notice the tongue!)

Thank you, Jadae.

AIshani2We were in a park shelter in Warrenville.  It was May first.  How promising! Spring is here at last.  We wished!  Alas, it was 42 degrees.  I was dressed for the upper reaches of Norway, but the kids were not.  I drew freezing, shivering, often crying children. I just hope everybody got warm and cozy as soon as they got home.

RiverGrove

This was a kids’ birthday party at Hanging Gardens Banquets in River Grove. When a lot of families with kids are invited, the parents tend to request black/white drawings to maximize the number of drawings that can be made.

Liam1

The party was in the Doucetta Room at Giordano’s, a perfect setting for a Liam2family party.  We were celebrating Dominik’s First Communion. This was a bunch of well-groomed, poised kids who were competitive ball room dancers.

What dances do you do?

Oh, the tango, the bossa nova, stuff like that.

Lovely!
