SleeveRip
Chicago Police Officer retires. He loves his job, loves Chicago, loves his Harley. He is shown ripping off the sleeve with the CPD star to reveal a tattoo on his bicep: #1 Tact Guy. Now, I don’t know what that refers to. Is “tact” short for “tactical,” or was he the most tactful guy on the force? Or is tact a tactile part of the Harley engine? No matter, this was fun to draw. Anytime you come up with an activity to put into the drawing, the work will be stronger than, say, having someone sit at a desk with a lot of awards around him/her. Oh, please, give me a ripping idea and I’ll tactically ride with it.

AbelK9It’s a privilege to be the artist of choice for this unit of the Chicago Police. This is the K9 and you know what that means, don’t you. It stands for canine, so clever, rah-rah. So, these are the officers who work with highly trained dogs. I do love drawing the faces, but I have to confess, the dogs are more fun to draw. That’s obvious. The cop is angular and official looking and the puppy gets to carry the humor part in the drawing, cross eyed and tongue hanging out. Thanks again, Cindi.

The colleague who commissioned the drawing later told me that the officer cried tears of joy when she received this. It’s very rewarding for me to hear comments like that. A successful caricature is full of insight and the recipient should instantly feel understood and connected.

Thank you, Cindy.
