InnsbrookAInnsbrookBThis Mardi Gras honors the professionals and volunteers who make the Methodist Hospitals in northern Indiana so renowned. It is a gala event. I love this party and this year was the third time I was invited to participate. Here’s a small sample of my work that fabulous evening.  Thank you Mary and Rafael! I hope there will be many more Mardi Gras.

The entertainment was classy.  Make no mistake, this juggler was a great wit, a true theater person, who brought out the best in people.

14AkibaSchechterAAs is customary at benefit parties, there were long tables with fabulous things to bid on. But you also 14AkibaSchechterBhave to have a caricaturist. Moi! I was pleased to be part of the entertainment along with magician Randy Bernstein and stilt-walker, juggler Ken Schultz. This was a posh but very relaxed fundraising bash for an orthodox Jewish school in Hyde Park. Members of the community also performed: violin, piano and a polyphonic vocal group. Great fun! Thank you, Debbi.———————-

We’re AT not ON Bourbon Street. It’s a huge eatery-entertainment complex in the Marionette Shopping Center on 155th Street.  The South Shore Humane Society was hosting an 13HumaneSociety10animal adoption party earlier this month and I was there for five hours to draw the kind people who came.  People did walk around with dogs wearing “adopt me” bandannas and I drew some, but the adoption activity was centered in another room and so I ended up drawing mostly people.  Here are a few of the many I drew that afternoon.  Thank you, Jana!  I hope to be back next year.

I can highly recommend two fellow entertainers at this event:Nick Connell, balloon twister : nick.balloons@gmail.com, 860-992-6967

Bob Hunt, juggler, stiltwalker, etc.: circusboy.com, 708-499-9880.  His interaction with the audience was wonderful, especially with the kids.  Here’s nine-year-old, Terry, who picked up some excellent juggling tips from the master.
