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!

Not only could everybody be a judge, but everybody could be an artist.

Here’s a brilliant idea for all you Human Resource people.  The employees are encouraged to bring in their own art work.  It will be displayed in, let’s say, a conference/lecture room.  Then one late afternoon you throw a little refreshments-and-nibbles party in that large room and everybody comes in to vote on the art work.  Gets people talking and mingling, and isn’t that part of the HR job description!

And, of course, you bring in that famous caricaturist, whatshername, to draw everybody.  So, that’s what I did in this wonderful art-loving atmosphere. This was an international consulting firm in the Loop just across from the Thompson Center.  Class act, Rohan!  Thank you.

Here are a few of the exhibitors and judges. Sorry about the glare. My drawing paper has a gloss finish (like a magazine cover) and I don’t want to spend time fiddling with the camera angle when I’m taking these photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notice, it was mostly women. If the activity had been centered on sports rather than art, would it have been mostly men?  You think so!?  The next drawing shows a tiny woman with very long hair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Totally losing it, absolute hilarity.

A small company in Glenview specializes in skylights.  How small?  Small enough to fit everybody into the party room at Hackneys on Lake and be drawn—with spouses—by that caricaturist, what’s her name, that famous one. But big enough to have clients in two-hundred-and fifty-nine cities.  I remember that number as the correct answer to one of the questions in the quiz game planned by the owner, who’s energy and wit is reflected in his  name—Buff.  He’s a math-and-science guy who also has perfect pitch in social encounters and in running the human relations of his company.  I enjoyed all his people, who seemed to have interesting and interested lives, with several of them being serious musicians.  Yeah!  Thank you, Buff and Jeff!

I’ll post a few of the pictures from that evening here.
