14AlsipB

The graduating class in this private junior high school in Alsip was small, I’m guessing sixty kids. 14AlsipAThe principal went all out to make this a memorable event. It was held in the gym. But at the center of the gym was a tent illuminated by tiny white string lights for a very magical effect. Awards were applauded, then there was dancing and, ta-tah, under a separate tent, that famous caricaturist Whatsername. I enjoyed this thoroughly, drawing the kids only a little sassy, but then for the teachers  I pulled out all my stops, as you can see. Even the principal got the strong treatment and she laughed uproariously when I turned the drawing around. Thank you, Lisa.———————–

13TrinityA

It’s gratifying to be called back to the same event year 13TrinityAaafter year.  This is the open house at Trinity High School on Division just off the expressway.  The kids appreciate my drawings, amid some giggles, of course.  Here are just a few from that day last September.  And one of the many proud moms.

13LittleHands1On the last Saturday in October, Little Hands Learning Center in Beverly  held a Halloween party in the school.  There were prizes for best costumes given in a larger room down the hall.  I was set up in a charming school room for pre-schoolers and only heard the applause.  I suspect, every child won a prize and that is what I saw as I drew them.  All fabulous costumes: lavender princess, Dorothy with her blue pinafore and red glittering shoes, strong man with upholstered abs, some comic strip characters I couldn’t name, and a family of three girls all representing some branch of the medical profession.  I drew thirty-six people in three hours.  Here are a few.

Thank you, Michelle and Catherine!————————

13HalfwayA

At the end of August I was at a Health Outreach on Sheridan near Lawrence.  This is an organization that transitions people from being institutionalized under care and supervision into independent living in their own 13Halfway7apartments.  For the sake of discretion I only documented my drawings, not the individuals who posed for them and I put on the name only if specifically requested.  It was a small “graduating class” and I drew as many staff people as graduates.  Can you tell them apart?  No. ( Reminds me of a scene in which  Jack Nicholson takes his buddies sailing.)

Thank you, Cynthia. Going for color was well worth it.  I drew fifteen people in full color in two hours. I’m sure every one of these drawings inspires confidence and optimism in these people’s lives. —————————–

13WestAcad25

On a very hot and humid day, the kids were inside.  I set up in two classrooms and drew a total of thirty-five five-year-olds in four hours, without a break.  That’s a lot of drawings –in full color.  But then, on 8-1/2 x 11, it goes fast.  What really helped was the super organization of the teachers. Each child handed me a slip of paper with his/her name and the activity to be depicted.  Princesses won hands down.  After that, it was skateboards, soccer and artists. ———————–

13ReadMe9bThe James R. Jordan Foundation sponsored an event in Touhy Herbert Park on W. Adams near Ogden, designed to 13ReadMe9encourage reading.  Hundreds of books had been collected and were now given away to school age kids, most of them in grammar school.  I drew thirty-five people in less than four hours. Here are a few of them.  Thank you, Brigid!

13TritonColl4bIn past years I’ve done Christmas parties at Triton College in River Grove.  It was a pleasure to be called 13TritonColl4back to do a summer event on this expansive campus. This was the first such picnic and the turnout was not as great as, I’m sure, it will be next year after word has gotten out about how well organized it is, the excellence of the food, the music and—ta-tah—that famous caricature artist Whatshername.

Thank you, Mikenya, hope to see you next June!——-
