When you compare this drawing to the drawings I did of kids at the New Year’s Eve party (previous post), you can see how different the humor is.  This was an engaged couple who had met at St. Xavier College somewhere in Indiana, if I recall that correctly.    Very wholesome, proper, polite.  Beautiful faces, she of the refined well-bred beauty sort and he of the seductive blue-eyed with the eyelashes and the strong neck….oh, my.  She had been an education major, he graduated with a degree in environmental studies specializing in water.   So, of course, I teased them a little to find out if they would give me permission to go for it and they loved every bit of it, letting me know by their chit chat to my chit chat that, well, that I could go for it.  I love drawing people who are secure in knowing who they are because then the pen just flows. On the other hand, I also love drawing folks who are mystified by what I do and sometimes even apprehensive.  Then the pen flows differently and I enjoy that, too.  Basically, you get the drift here, I enjoy this gig all the time. And, important point, the chit chat is essential.
