14GargTwinsThe twins were turning one and the family flew in from Atlanta to celebrate in Chicago.  I was set up next to the wall of Indian celebrities at Gaylord’ s Indian 14GargAman1Restaurant on Walton near Water Tower Place.  The aunt told me the twins had very different personalities, one placid the other very energetic.  So, I put that in the drawing, of course.  In caricature you can do more than a photo would be able to do.

I drew twenty-one people in three hours and in full color.  Thank you, Misha!———————————–

Twins

————————————————————————————————-

When Callie sat down to be drawn, I said, I’ve already drawn you.  She said,you drew Kelsey.  Right.  Kelsey wore pink and Callie is wearing yellow.  I asked if she enjoyed this confusion, it must be happening to them all the time. Yes, she said, slightly bored by the question.  Now, I’m pretty good at faces and I notice little quirks, but these twins were truly identical.  When I draw identical twins, one will be in profile and the other in a front view.  It’s the only way.  I had already drawn Kelsey (without knowing she was a twin)  in profile because her hair was pulled back and so when Callie sat down with her hair loose, she got the front view.  So, that worked out very well. Still, I love being challenged and these two were…well, incredible.

Northbrook Twins

I worked from photos sent by email.  Identical twins often show subtle differences of expression.  To get these subtleties required lots of photos, not just good front shots but also snap shots from all angles, like the ones taken at parties.  Luckily the cousins who commissioned the drawing had tons of excellent photos on hand.  It’s a close knit family with parties and celebrations happening all the time.  Thank you Jake, Elise, and Maya.  Happy 15th Birthday, Marion and Monika!
