You’ll have noticed that in the shots of the people (the “victims” as some perceptive clients call them), they are always looking to the left of the frame.  That’s because after the drawing is done, I turn it around for them to see and I hold it up in my left hand while simultaneously clicking the shutter of my little Sony with my right.

This is the moment I work for.  Oh, sure, there’s a check at the end of the party, but this reaction, this sudden outburst of laughter—often accompanied by dramatic hand gestures—THIS IS IT!  Sometimes during long parties people ask me if I’m getting tired.  Well, yes, physically, but I’m not aware of it because this hilarity is so rewarding and energizing for me.  I just keep going.  It’s what I love to do.

As I was drawing the bat-mitzvah, I asked her what the topic of her speech in the synagogue had been.  She said, it was that you should do good without expecting to be rewarded.

You see, I go to my job to make people laugh and that’s fine.  And in return, I get so much more than a pay check.  I get inspired.  A twelve year old girl who had her long blond hair curled in the 19th century manner for this occasion and asked for a caricaturist and dress up stuff to be photographed in with her friends , well, this girl was wise and inspiring.  Thank you, Julia.
