13EvanstonChamComm8b

This was a “Business After Hours” event, sponsored by the Evanston Chamber of Commerce and the Evanston Community 13EvanstonChamComm8Foundation.  The focus was on the arts in Evanston.  Musicians and actors performed.  As a visual artist, I represented the Evanston Art Center, where I teach painting and drawing.  Appropriately enough, this event highlighting the arts was held at the Evanston Dance Center, where the class rooms are spacious and as mirrored as you are now imagining them to be.

I love this town. This being Evanston, where I’ve lived all my adult life, people were both sophisticated and casual, professional and personable, refined and communicative, serious and witty.

13EvanstonChamComm5 I drew, among others, a writer, a Northwestern football coach, an “officehead,”   and a travel agent.  I drew the owner of the travel agency playing the tablas, which are his passion. He leads this post with his great face and alert eyes.

The “officehead”  was passionate about organizing small business owners’ paperwork, but she was also a passionate biker , holding the world record for speed, which she set a couple of years ago in Utah  on  a vintage something-something BMW.  See?  That’s Evanston.  Everybody you meet has a lot going on.

It’s a tradition at Topco:  when you retire you get a caricature by that famous artist Whathername.  I love doing these projects. It’s not just getting the likeness, but then drawing in just enough of the hobby or interest to add character without detracting from the person or cluttering up the image.   In this case, I dealt with a music lover.  Needless to say, I’m partial to people with a passion for the arts.  I really enjoyed drawing Ken as an opera lover, a collector of guitars and a world traveler.  Thanks again, Maureen!

Doreen is retiring from Topco.  I don’t know what all she’s getting as a retirement gift from the company, but she will certainly enjoy this colorful caricature showing her with her favorite things to do.  Because the drawing is 11 x 14, a nice large size, the various elements in it come across as important and lively.  It makes for a nice presentation.  Congratulations, Doreen!  Best to you!
