I wasn’t the only one working at this party.  There were two work stations.  One for me, drawing caricatures of the kids.  The other, for the kids .

The parents—brilliant!—had bought wooden frames, with glass and backing.  While I was drawing away, each child was busy decorating her/ his frame with all sorts of glittery and whimsical stuff.  The dining room table was just right for this project.  What fun!

I drew the kids in color and then, with time remaining, some of the parents subjected themselves to the caricature experience, but for them I worked in line only, because it does go a little faster. But, for adults, the humor is all there in b/w.

Thank you, Patricia!——————————————————

Donna G. is retiring from her many years at Topco and looking forward to her pool, many good books, and her six grandchildren frolicking around her in the back yard.  This drawing just flowed out of my pens, such fun.  Caricatures by Katherine Hilden are now a tradition at Topco for people who are retiring.   I think it’s a great idea, not just because I love doing these but because I can imagine the pleasure they bring to the recipients.    Congratulations, Donna!

It’s the place to be and be seen on New Year’s Eve.  Fourteen-hundred Hoosiers can’t be wrong.

About eight years ago, some bright people at the Indiana State Museum in down town Indianapolis thought of throwing a New Year’s Eve party for parents and their kids.  There must have been some nay-sayers when this proposal was initially being evaluated, as in no-one-will-go-to-a-museum-on-New-Year’s-Eve.  It’s been a smashing success from the beginning!

Easy to see why.  The space is grand, made for major events, with a three-story atrium and a cross walk on the third floor, where I had the privilege of being set up to draw the party goers.  They were parents with school age kids, mostly.  The party goes from 6:00 to 9:00, with the balloon drop in the atrium at 8:00.  It’s spectacular, festive and, I’m sure, a fond memory when the kids are grown up.  Every city and town should have such a wholesome way of celebrating New Year’s Eve.

Thank you David, Katie and Petra!  I hope to gasp at that balloon drop again in 355 days. Class act! —————————————————————–
