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.

milwaukee2 milwaukee1

I had a tent to myself, with extra chairs so that people waiting in line didn’t have to stand, and I drew steadily for six hours with only one short break.  Wentworth Street was jammed with people. http://milwaukeerecord.com/city-life/relive-beet-street-harvest-festival-with-these-photos/

One of the pictures on this site shows a red tractor and you can see it in the background of my photos of the people I drew.  This was my first year participating in this event. The Goodkind organizers said I’d be invited back. So next year you may see pictures of me in The Milwaukee Record.  Yeah!  I’ll be famous in Milwaukee.

The sponsor of my tent, btw, was Jim Beam Apple.  Not being much of a bar hopper, I thought Jim Beam had progressed to making  wholesome apple juice.  Had to look it up: it’s whiskey made from apples. http://www.jimbeam.com/en-us/bourbons/apple.  Next year at this event,  I hope to get a sip. Just a sip; takes concentration to draw caricatures.

What’s particularly interesting to me is that the donations made in my tent all went to a charitable organization that teaches city people how to grow their own food in the city. That’s wonderful.  We need more Growing Power. http://www.growingpower.org

Thanks Lindsey and Katie!

Too many drawings to post from that afternoon.  Here’s a sampling.

Just labels, you say?  Oh, no. Labels are a huge industry.  Who knew.

I worked for an international Swedish company at the Rosemont convention center last week. The whole place was swarming with experts on printing machines, color nuances, adhesives and whatnot related to big and small labels.  I drew dozens of people from dozens of countries, but only took a few pictures of my work.  Because it was a business atmosphere, you understand.

Notice that the lower left corner holds a sticker—a label, ta-tah–identifying my client, because that’s the real message we’re trying to get across here.  Notice, also, that I drew right over the label, not much but just enough to make sure it stays on there when people frame the drawing for their office. BTW, labels are much more economical  than pre-printing the paper and they can hold a lot of information–and in color.

People liked the drawings so much that they occasionally showed me photos of kids or girlfriends on their phones.  Sure, I can do that, too.  In that case, I drew on paper that I hadn’t stuck the sticker on.  Everybody went home happy.

Thank you, Cornelia!

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!
