High school seniors are—let me come right out with it—my favorite demographic for caricature drawings.  Proms are fun, of course, but there the kids are dressed up, they sit up straight and at dinner they try to use the right fork and, what’s this, oh a napkin. This party at Andrew High School in Tinley Park was about  tons of food to shovel down and loud music to dance to, whatever.  My camera doesn’t capture the hilarity, because by the Tinley2time I’ve positioned the thing they’ve righted themselves to perform for the camera they way they’d been taught to perform since they were knee-high to a grasshopper.  And I mean “righted,”  because the first reaction to the drawing was that they fell backwards or sideways—below table height. I love it!!

Sixteen, sweet, smart…and funny!  I drew a serious piano student, a tenor sax player, a baton twirler,  a criminology enthusiast, a novel reader, a devoted teacher, a math lover, a strong soft ball player and a girl with a mop of red hair. And a drawing enthusiast who spent much of the evening watching my technique.  We talked shop, about papers, markers and the best places to buy art supplies. The party took place last night in Tinley Park during a raging thunder storm.  But pizza and caricatures will make for a cozy evening .  Thank you all for the great evening, the giggles and the inspiration.  Happy Birthday, Lauren!  Rent “The Big Sleep”  and you’ll see Lauren Bacall at her best, working with a smart script.

Thank you, Jim and Valerie!
