14GargTwinsThe twins were turning one and the family flew in from Atlanta to celebrate in Chicago.  I was set up next to the wall of Indian celebrities at Gaylord’ s Indian 14GargAman1Restaurant on Walton near Water Tower Place.  The aunt told me the twins had very different personalities, one placid the other very energetic.  So, I put that in the drawing, of course.  In caricature you can do more than a photo would be able to do.

I drew twenty-one people in three hours and in full color.  Thank you, Misha!———————————–

All you need for a good party:  good food and plenty of it;  people who are happy to see each other;  a thoughtful hostess;  and caricatures by that famous artist, whatshername.  The reaction at the moment when they see the drawing says  it all.  Here are a few.  Thank you, Bonnie!

When I first started drawing caricatures, babies scared me.  I mean, drawing them scared me.  I knew that I was there to please the parent and the parent wanted “cute.”  I can do cute.  But at the same time I have always seen babies as having a lot of character and individuality.  Babies are actually serious people, I think, always working it out:  how does all this stuff that’s coming at me fit together and how can I outsmart everybody around me?  Hard work, takes a lot of concentration.

So I like to draw them looking assertive, with shoulder up, hand on hip, or elbows on table, biceps strong.  Turns out, parents actually like this.  Probably because they also see their baby as an individual with character.

Here are just a hand-full, from recent parties.  The last one shown here had such a mature face, that he came out looking like a teen-ager in the drawing.  Dad said, yup that’s him.

Btw, a baby is anyone who has to sit on somebody’s lap to be drawn.

(There’s a worthwhile documentary called “Everybody Loves Babies,” 2010, director Thomas Balmes.)
