The Ruth Lake Country Club in Hinsdale hosted a Ladies Invitational yesterday. Tee-off was at noon.  As the members and RuthLake2their guests came in between ten and noon, they socialized, snacked and, ta-tah, sat for a caricature.  They were a fun bunch, relaxed and to a tee, in good humor.  Such an ambiance makes for good caricatures.  The marker just flows.

When I had a foursome, I looked at everyone, decided on the sequence in which I would draw them and then everyone took turns sitting in front of me.  Goes very fast, about a minute for the face.  Then I tucked the line drawing away and finished the drawing with bodies and color later.  The ladies liked that. You know how athletes are, they don’t like to sit still very long.

After four hours on the links, they came back to the locker room to freshen up a bit (it was a hot and humid afternoon) and relax over hors d’oeuvres and chardonnays.  This was another opportunity to get your caricature drawn.

I thoroughly enjoyed this day.  What a congenial group they were! Lot’s of easy-going humor.


The tongue? I didn’t have to make that up!

Thank you, Jan.

DOG2The people at Tails of Hope in Highland Park rescue dogs from cruel owners and bad situations, rehabilitate them and then try to find good homes for them. Last Saturday, The Grand, a supermarket on Green Bay Road in Winnetka, hosted an Adopt-a-Palooza in their parking lot. I was set up under an umbrella and had the pleasure of drawing dogs with their “persons” in close harmony. The dogs, of course, ran the show. To depict the communication and closeness between person and dog, I drew the person imitating the dog’s posture of obedience. The tongue had to hang out. This is fun to draw! Many people didn’t come with their dog and asked me to work from a photo on their smartphone, which they proudly presented. This I can do and the work was well received and with much laughter. After all, true dog lovers think their dogs are funny.  Thank you, David!
