I’m leading with this photo to show that women really do pose in this Hollywood glamour style.  It’s unprovoked.  I don’t ask them to play Marilyn. They just do. A woman very often sits down and immediately does this thing with her shoulders, crossed legs, squinty eyes and puckered lips. Those of you who were shocked at the recent post with the three women in red dresses are invited to come to my events. This is real life.  That is to say, real life imitating Hollywood glamour.  You know, that thin line between reality and illusion. That’s were my work takes place.

The Penrod Society in Indianapolis had a fundraiser in the fabulous Stutz building last month and they asked me to draw and draw them in.  Thank you, Giavonna and Cara!

Then there’s the opposite, which is also fun. My model here is a poet. Great conversation.

But the glamour thing–flattery–goes over bigger and it has become a hallmark of my work:

It’s a no-brainer. The way to attract people is to throw a party and hand out freebies.  At Nordstrom’s on Grant last December the freebies were exquisite sweets and, ta-tah, my sweet drawings.  We, the scoopable sweets and my laughable drawings were set up next to one another and, appropriately, just across the aisle from the party planning stuff.

The store had pre-printed 4” x 6” cards for me. I drew on the front and on the back it said in multi-color letters, “YOU ARE SO GIFTED.”  Awww!    Only verrrrry regular customers got the freebies.  They came after work down-town and were, obviously, smart shoppers. Including the kids, I’m sure, who had quickly been picked up from their after-school programs.  The whole scene was fascinating to watch and I enjoyed my two hours in the world of expert marketing.

Thank you, Allison.     ——————————————————————-

I was delighted to be invited back to draw in this lively space.  This time we were celebrating the Fifth Birthday of Indy Reads Books.

Not only the space, I also find the people who come here very interesting.  This woman with the high hat, for example.  I took a little break in my four-hour engagement, had a little nibble and looked around at people I had not drawn yet.  Here was this hat. After my compliment I leaned that it was self- made and that led to more conversation.  Linné and I talked about education and family all the while I was drawing her. How wonderful!

Thank  you, MaryAnna!

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!

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.————————————————-

They’re on Elston in Chicago.  They’re huge. Of course, they are.  Have you ever seen a corner mom and pop car dealer, where you quickly stop by after work to pick up a little something? Fox Ford Lincoln held a promotion in a top floor show room whose ceiling was at least three stories high, high enough, for acrobats hanging from ropes and twirling in strobe lights.  It was a promotion but also a party thrown for customers who already drive a Ford or Lincoln from Fox.  Nice.
