Posts Tagged ‘Christmas Party’

That was last December, actually, but I’m only just now catching up on my posts.  What a great party!  IUPUI Chemistry professors and their families huddled together at the cozy Hollyhock Hill restaurant on College Ave near 82nd.  Other chemists there worked in industry—like beer production.  You can see one of those walking along with a dripping beer glass. Here’s to Sun King Brewery!

I drew thirty-six of these peppy people in three hours.

Orazio1
Orazio2When I arrived, everybody was busy with food. By the time I was set up, they were ready—and eager!—to be drawn. The host and many of the guests were in the police force or had gone through military training. But here they were super casual and relaxed. And they had a robust sense of humor—who knew! I thoroughly enjoyed these people. Thank you, Brazilio and Mary, for your kind hospitality and for asking me to work in color!

Riverside1
You can do Christmas at home with your family, but it’s also a time to be swept up in a larger social radius. We were in the Riverside2gym, which is a surprisingly grand space, what with the high cathedral trussed ceiling and the stage for the needed celebratory focus. From a corner of this stage we heard Christmas carols in four-part harmony sung by pros in Dickensian Garb. The other side of the stage held the glittering tree and gorgeously wrapped gift boxes. People enjoyed a fine meal in the company of old and new friends. And, of course, there was a balloon twister and me, the caricaturist. This was truly festive! Thank you, Teresa.
Bob Hunt was the balloon twister this evening, but you can see bits of his astounding acrobatic performance at


and you can reach him at circusbobus@yahoo.com
At this party I saw the best Santa ever:

GolfClubA
‘Twas the third week of December and everything GolfClubBglittered festive in this north suburban country club. Nothing but the best. Everything was taken care of. Everybody was relaxed and looking good. Everybody enjoyed my work, which was, I must admit, pretty good. How could it not be, in such a congenial atmosphere! I drew twenty-seven people in full color in three hours. You can see the hilarity in the reactions when they first see the drawing.  Thank you, Dale.

EpicAirA
Epic Air is an athletic center. The part dedicated to teens and after school activities is where I did these EpicAirBdrawings. The organizers said, let’s not have another Christmas dinner, let’s do caricatures this year. Yeah! I drew thirty-five people in two-and-a-half hours. Pretty good, huh? The kids loved it. Thank you, Jill.

I’ll show just a few pictures  of the many I did. Some kids were very serious and studious and some, like Eddie, just hammed it up.  Everybody inspired me to do good work. (You’ll see Eddie’s drawing at the end.)

13Gurnee1bThis is an early afternoon holiday party for a department in a large North Shore company.  The head of the department thought her crew deserved a fine meal and 13Gurnee1the dubious honor , haha, of being caricatured.  She wanted very personal drawings, reflecting quirks and personality traits.  The coworkers were encouraged to give me ideas, all in high spirits and with great enthusiasm.  In such an engaging atmosphere, the work is sheer pleasure and I’ll let the pictures document that feeling.  Some shots are blurry, because of the liveliness of this group.  When you see the top of someone’s head, you know that he was folded over with laughter after he’s seen the drawing. Priceless, really.  I drew seven-teen people in full color n two hours.  Thank you,  April!——————————-
