Stonegate1
Stonegate2This is a luxurious, spacious banquet facility in Hoffman Estates. The walls and ceiling in this banquet room were completely draped in white cloth, creating an environment designed to suggest purity. The chairs were covered in white satin with blue sashes. The effect was that of a glossy women’s magazine, heightened by the Barbie-doll perfection of all the young women who attended. The groom, the only male present, must have enjoyed this party. The fabulous gifts were as fabulously wrapped as you’d expect at an all-around fabulous bridal shower. In two hours, I drew twenty-three people, including six in full color. Thank you, Anne Marie!

IMG_5506This was a classy party at Stonegate in Hoffman Estates. The birthday boy’s hair was moussed up and he wore a tweed jacket and a bow tie. The women were aglitter. The men, of course, came in jeans. But overall, a carefully planned party with lots of entertainment. I felt lucky to be asked back, having done the mom’s baby shower the year before. As often happens at kids parties, I’m asked to draw the birthday child in color and then switch to black/white for everybody else.  Thank you, Sana and Cathi.

lastThe drawings go fast. I only need to look at the face for a few seconds and then maybe again for a few seconds.  All in all the likeness is down withing a minute.  People seem to pick up on that and then go back to business as usual, as you can see here.  Haha, it’s always interesting.
