14LangBaIt was most gratifying to be called back, this time to draw the guests at Dior’s first birthday party. I had been the caricaturist of choice at the baby shower last February (see https://katherinehilden.wordpress.com/2013/02/20/baby-shower-in-bronzeville/) and here she 14LangBbwas, ta-tah, such a lovely baby.
The birthday party was held in the gym early in March at the Y on Stoney Island at 63rd. Balloons everywhere, including large silver ones to spell out D-I-O-R!
Just a note about face painting. As you can see in these photos, sometimes face-painting can cover so much of the face that it functions like a mask. The child will be recognized by friends and family, but not by a newcomer, like me. I can save the day, however, by drawing the profile, which was what I did for many kids. It works. But party planners may want to set things up in such a way that those who want both a caricature and a face-painting, would have the caricature done first. That way there are more options. Still, the profile strategy works fine.
Thanks again, David!—————————————
