This was a bat-mitzvah at Hackney’s in Glencoe.  I drew thirty-five teenagers in three hours.  That’s a clipping pace, which was made possible by the mom’s excellent organization of the event and her decision to go with black-and-white drawings. When the host’s emphasis is on getting the most people drawn, b/w is the logical choice.  Notice, also, that the bodies are not in activities, which also take extra time to draw.  But what I did get into the drawing is attitude, don’t you agree.  Attitude is so important in a caricature!  Especially with kids, where I really don’t do sarcasm.  That would be psychologically risky for young people, I think, and I’m not there to poke them into self-doubt.  (Save that for adults, hmmm.)

Thank you, Keri!

For Ellie’s eleventh birthday I drew all six girls individually in black & white on 8½ x 11. Her mom had bought frames that the girls decorated right there at the dining room table. Then there was another round of drawings. This time I

took out a large piece of paper, 11×14, they sat for me again individually and drew them all together in color. They all made pouty faces in the selfie fashion . All this took just a few IMG_5585minutes over one hour. Great fun. Of course, it helps if the mom is super organized. Thank you, Sarah.
