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.———————-

13CedarLake3bThis was a holiday party for a company that transports crude oil.  I must confess, I didn’t expect such a class act:  from the view of the lake to the classical guitarist and the magician,  to the fact that the entertainers were invited to join in at dinner.

13CedarLake3It was a family party for the employees.  Engineers, managers, that sort of crowd.  Sometimes the kids stayed to see the finished drawing and sometimes they didn’t, as in the featured drawing shown above. But you can see that the parents cracked up when they saw the drawing.

Thank you, Cassandra!

The classical guitarist was Jim Perona, jimperona@hotmail.com

Tim Balster was the magician, http://www.BalsterMagic.com

13BkConsWoman2b

And why not?!  It gets pretty crazy in December, we all know that.  It’s now quite common for corporate holiday parties to 13BkConsWoman2be held in January.  After all, what’s another month or two.

We were at the Green Door Tavern in the heart of River North, in the Speakeasy downstairs, a perfect venue for a consulting firm of twenty to thirty employees. Thank you, Lori!

I shared the honor of entertaining these smart, witty people with a magician/mentalist named Mike O’Donnell and I was as dazzled by his seamless performance as every one else present.

You can find Mike O’Donnell at magicofmike.com.  Highly recommended!—————————————————

For some reason I was inspired to draw tattoos of wife’s names that evening, maybe because of the murals and signs all around me at the Speakeasy. Next I want to show two drawings that have a lot of spunk, I think,  even though my camera didn’t get the mug shots of the original people. It was a two hour party and I drew everybody, totally energized by this crowd.
