My painting students know that I draw caricatures at parties. Every now and then one of them hires me to do a family event.  This was Veronica’s daughter’s 17th birthday.  Her passion is theater and her friends are all thespians.  Can you tell?!!

Veronica, you chose the Hawaiian theme…in an attempt to calm them down? Haha.

Thank  you, Veronica.——————————————-

Babyshower1
Stephanie and Carolyn met as four-year-olds on a playground and have been friends ever since. So, naturally Stephanie threw Carolyn, in her eighth month, a baby shower. We were in the Dolcetto Room (how sweet!) at Maggiano’s at Old Orchard in Skokie. I drew the couple first, in color (and you can tell it’s a girl), then the husband/father left for Barnes & Noble and I drew the twenty-one guests, all women, of course, in black/white –in two hours. Thank you, Stephanie.

13Synag1It was a Sunday in early October and everybody took time out to celebrate the kids in this large orthodox 13Synag12congregation. There was a petting zoo outside, lots of pizza, two facepainters and one caricature artist, me.  It was great.  I drew forty-one kids in four hours. Thank you, Hershel!

13CookCountySheriffNot Wyatt Earp and not Dodge City.  Not from NYPD, not from LAPD, not from The Wire, not from Men in Black.  But he was a sheriff, he was retiring and he loved golf.  That’s all I was told.  Oh, and his territory was somewhere around Skokie.  Well, that’s enough to work with.  So here he is, in command of the situation…all except the golf ball, which is getting outahere The shirt is the official one from the job, the knee-pants (knickers?) are purple and green.  The belt, instead of bullets, has golf tees.   Don’t know his name, he was Da Sheriff.  Best to you, Sheriff.  Thank you, Mark.
