LayneStaleyThis is what you give to a friend who’s a huge Layne Staley fan.

I suggested that we add a purple stage floor. Biceps and bare chests are fine, but it’s the purple splash that makes the picture.

13JulieDePaulDrawA co-worker in human resources is leaving for another job.  What can the head of the department do to show that Julie was terrific and will be missed.  Ta-tah!  Let’s give her a caricature by that famous Chicago caricature artist.  My instructions were clear:  put her on a balance beam and show her juggling.  Juggling is a great image for what a lot of people in offices do, even though they actually sit and look at computer screens all day.  Thank you, Stephanie!  Best to you, Julie!

The department heads of a company in Wisconsin presented their CEO with a group caricature of themselves.

Nothing like giving the boss a big laugh!  Laughter is a wise gift.  Thank you, Evelyn.

I just noticed something about this drawing, which was done a few weeks ago.  The line that indicates the mountains around Las Vegas can be interpreted as a “stress graph.”  You can see it to the right of the retiring executive and above the swimming pool.  It’s a mountain and it’s also a graph line. The line goes up, peaks, and then—with retirement—descends.  That’s it, Frank, no more stress, no more tension, it’s all sixes from now on.  Congratulations!

His best friend sent me photos of the face and the uniform.  This was a thoughtful gift for a life-long buddy.

Rick was moving to another market, so, of course, he got a Hilden Caricature to mark the milestone.  I’m sure he got some other stuff, too, but this caricature must have hit the spot:  his cigar boat is strapped to the Wienermobile.  Tricky engineering, but, hey in a caricature you can do anything.

The party in Marengo was on Friday.  The next day on Saturday I was back on I-90, again heading towards Rockford and getting very close…Belvidere, which means something like “beautiful view.”  It was, indeed, all about beautiful views.  The hostess organizes some four thousand women in the mid-west who hold parties in their homes to sell jewelry.  About forty of them and their men-folk were gathered in this old Victorian house.  You guessed it, the women were sparkling and weighed down with baubles and the guys were, well, just there, “looking on,” supportive and amused and in good spirits.  Great food, big punch bowl and abundant decorations.  Good, hearty sense of humor, driving the whole evening and me right in there reflecting that ambiance, as I always do.  As the evening glittered on, I started putting people in thongs and bikinis and eventually there was a nipple showing in one of the drawings.  Hey, it was warm and cozy under that Christmas tree and I just go with the flow. It’s really fun to draw solid, hard-working, sensible people in a trashy,  rock ‘n’ roll way–and they love it, too!!

Here’s a small sample of the drawings from that wonderful evening.  I really did draw everybody there.

and eventually there was a wardrobe malfunction in one of the drawings.  Hey, it was warm and cozy under that Christmas tree and I just go with the flow.  You can’t miss the absolute delight in these reactions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The gracious hostess gave me a present:  a necklace that can also be worn as a belt.  Thank you, Kay!  The perfect gift, since I’ve been wearing these black tube things when I go to gallery openings and something was always missing.  The following day, Sunday, I did in fact go to an opening, wearing my black tube things and my leather jacket.  This time, with the right accessory.  Yeah!!!   Perfect!    Thank you, Kay.
