BrideShowerFriends of the bride gathered together on Sunday morning in a bar to hold this bridal shower hosted by the bride’s sister. The Rail, a bar in the Ravenswood neighborhood, is surprisingly well lit, even has a sky light, which is, of course, where I set up. I drew for two hours: nine-teen in black/white and two, the bridal couple, in color. Thank you, Sophia.

At the end of August I was at a Health Outreach on Sheridan near Lawrence.  This is an organization that transitions people from being institutionalized under care and supervision into independent living in their own 13Halfway7apartments.  For the sake of discretion I only documented my drawings, not the individuals who posed for them and I put on the name only if specifically requested.  It was a small “graduating class” and I drew as many staff people as graduates.  Can you tell them apart?  No. ( Reminds me of a scene in which  Jack Nicholson takes his buddies sailing.)

Thank you, Cynthia. Going for color was well worth it.  I drew fifteen people in full color in two hours. I’m sure every one of these drawings inspires confidence and optimism in these people’s lives. —————————–
