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!——————————-

13ConniesPizza1This was a party for women who participate in a study program at one of the hospitals.  I did their Christmas party last year and was happy to be called back again.  Connie’s is a fantastic place on Archer just south of 22nd, full of atmosphere and historic interest. Thank you again, Kathleen!——————————–

13RobinMahd1bGastroenterologists is what they call themselves, but it’s GI for short and that stands for GastroIntestinal.  See?  I learn things at my parties.

13RobinMahd1It was the Holiday Party for the doctors and their staff.  This was a relaxed party in an opulent home and I thoroughly enjoyed partying with these   people.  I say “partying with” because that’s how they made me feel, especially the hostess who insisted that I enjoy myself.   Here are some pictures that document the high spirits all around me this wonderful evening last Saturday.

Thank you, Robin!———————————————

13VictoryMelrosePk1bAt a retirement home it can take a while for the party to get into full swing.  At the Christmas party last Friday  at the Victory Center in Melrose Park things got lively very quickly, though.  At first the DJ played Christmas carols and folks softly sang along.  But he also came with a Karaoke machine and that got plugged in very soon.  Some staff members obviously had musical and theatrical backgrounds because the singing was 13VictoryMelrosePk1quite good.  So, it was the Karaoke singing and me, the caricaturist, by the Christmas tree—a wonderful  atmosphere.  When I draw at retirement and extended care homes, I feel justified in considering my work therapeutic. Can’t measure it, don’t have any statistics, but I can see the happy effect.

Among the people I drew was  the retired TV clown, called T-Bone, who gave me a five dollar banknote with his picture and name on it: Don Theobald.  I drew kids and grandkids and a couple who met at this retirement home and became lovers there.  All in all, an inspiring evening, I would say.  Thank you,        Jeanette and Barbara!

12CCCTech25BIG

And then there’s a degree of extroversion that expresses itself in explicit information about underwear and what it’s intended to conceal.  Oh, what a stuffy sentence that turned into.

12CCCTech25Here we have a woman in a glittering red dress:  ebullient and voluptuous.  She volunteered dimensional information about her companion that otherwise would have been considered private.  He accepted this in good humor.  Gosh, another stuffy sentence.  But stuffing was sort of the theme, if you get… it was wild and my marker just went along.
