SatNtFev
This is the bridal couple from that Halloween Wedding I did on, well, Halloween last year.

I didn’t get a chance to draw them at the party, so I drew them later, from photos. They had changed from their formal wedding attire into costumes, their theme being Saturday Night Fever.

Hallow1
This fabulous wedding was held on October 31st—Halloween–in a Hallow2formal banquet hall in Homer Glen. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about the combination Wedding+Halloween, but all my doubts were dispelled the moment I walked into the high-ceiling room: black table clothes, black-covered banquet chairs with gleaming orange satin bows, orange spot lights running up the high walls. The bride and groom had changed from their formal, conventional wedding attire into Saturday Night Fever threads and did a lovely lead dance to the Bee-Gees. The guests were dressed UP in elegant theatrical costumes. I drew everything from Bonnie & Clyde to Tutankhamen to Cleopatra & Her Penguin Escort to an assortment of exquisitely painted sculls. Really, this was not a trick-or-treat crowd. People had flown in from the coasts and given a lot of thought to their presentation, and were willing to pay for it. So, lesson learned, if you know your friends and they’re as imaginative as you are, go ahead, have a Halloween Wedding! Oh, and have me as the caricaturist.

WestSpringA
Let’s face it, all of October is about Halloween. This Halloween WestSpringAAparty in Western Springs was already on the first weekend of October. And what a production it was! How extravagant was it? Let us count the ways: a DJ under a wooden structure especially built for this day, outdoor tables & chairs for at least fifty (over a hundred came), a team caterers serving mountains of food, decorations floor to ceiling, a rodeo bouncy, an acrobat & fire eater, an expert magician, a Michael Jackson impersonator who did his stunning numbers in several costume changes and, of course, caricatures by me, wearing a pink witches hat. Truly spectacular. Thank you, Diana!

FionaRivForstA

Fiona turned twelve. Mom was planning a small party for Fiona’s closest friends. There would be FionaRivForstbgood food and some games and what else. The party needed some focus. Ah! We have that caricature of Fiona framed in the family room. Who was that artist? Oh, the name is on the drawing and it’s clear: “Hilden, 2009.” Let’s call her and see if she’s still doing this. Oh, yes, more than ever! My drawings get framed and my name is out there. There are always new clients but I do get called back often.
Here’s the drawing I did of Fiona when she was seven. This was a Halloween party at another child’s house and she came as a bumblebee. I remembered!  Love it!

When I turn onto the street where my party is, I don’t have to look for the house number.  It’s easy to find my place of work, it’s where the balloons are.  In the case of Halloween, I also look for the giant pumpkins and the femurs sticking out of the front lawn.

Halloween for this Huntley family was just one of many excuses to get together.  That kind of family tradition makes for an gracious crowd, everybody being comfortable with everybody else.  A jovial, relaxed atmosphere is obviously reflected in these pictures.  The ambiance at a party naturally flows into my work.  Thank you, Robert!  May there be many more!

Smith Village is a retirement home on 113th Place.  Very few of the residents dressed up in costumes, but the grand kids went all out.  I admired their costumes which were worked out to great detail.  What fun!  The characters were all unique, only one princess, one vampire, one GI Joe,one mummy  etc, and therefore everybody won a price for best in that category.  Ingenious! Thank you, Joy.

Here are just a few of the kids I drew.—————–

This Halloween party was in NW Chicago. The small, tidy house was festooned with lights, spiders, cobwebs, skeletons and more spooky stuff than I can name. A vampire with glowing orange eyes sat up in his black satin coffin when you entered Evan’s (age 6) bedroom.  I worked in the younger boy’s, Ethan’s,  room to draw the guests, all under ten and decked out in fabulous costumes, some hand made by nanas.  You’ll see a small sampling of the thirty kids I drew: astronauts, musclemen, kittens, princesses, and a strawberry short cake in a hot pink wig.  Loved them all!   Thank you,  Carrie and Ryan!
