13YMCAberwyn1bThere were other activities and, of course, lots of pasta 13YMCAberwyn1to eat, but someone was always there to be drawn.  I drew twenty-three people in two hours.  Thank you, Stephanie!

The two girls, who look so serious here (below), became my best friends.  They were at my side pretty much the whole evening, enjoying the drawing process and asking questions.  I love that.

Solidarity Bridge is a charitable organization focused on Bolivia and Paraguay. This Benefit, held in the Women’s Club in Evanston, was called “Fiesta of Heroes”.  We celebrated the the doctors  who donated their time to heal the sick in Bolivia. So, naturally, I drew everybody, doctors and donors,  with a red hero cape.  I love doing benefits, everybody ‘s so up.  Thank you, Ann and Jayleen!

To get to the County Line Orchard where this fundraiser was held, I drove through beautiful downtown Hobart, IN, and then a spell through corn fields, reading those unfamiliar intersections carefully.

Four hundred people turned out to raise money for the Food Bank of NW Indiana and I drew a goodly number of them, dontchaknow.  Teachers, therapists, judges, entrepreneurs, lawyers, volunteers, moms, and the assorted basketball players and princesses.  I was booked for two hours and because of the enthusiastic response, asked to stay for three, til the end of the bash.  Gladly, enjoyed every minute!  Thank you, Vanessa!

This is post #200!

Here are a few of the good people I drew that evening.

To fund the art program in his school, Tom Ruiz,  an energetic young principal organized a fund raiser and called it “Art from the Heart.”   It was held in the school gym, involved raffle prizes and, of course, a famous caricaturist.  It would be an exaggeration to say that half the town showed up, but the place was buzzing.  A fun crowd, very personable people and very interested in my technique.  I learned that Crown Point has a population of about 20,000 and six florist shops; I learned this from a couple of florists who sat for me.(He with the flower in his straw hat.)  Somehow, that ratio speaks favorably about a town.  Thank you, Tom!

This was a fabulous event.  Notice the hilarity when they first see the drawing.  Seeing these reactions is very important to me, keeps me inspired.

Notice also, that color makes the drawing funnier.  My color technique is as fast as the black/white technique of other artists.  Working in b/w you have to put more lines down to make the drawing readable, but with a dash of color you can say it all and heighten the humor, to boot.  The bright color of eyes and hair, for example, or red-red hair and freckles.  Not to mention that famous red dress! To study my color technique more closely, click on the drawing for an enlargement.

That’s just a few from that fabulous fundraiser at St. Mary’s, a Catholic School in Crown Point.  Crown Point, Indiana, is where the good parties are!  Who Knew!?
