It’s been two years since I last drew everybody at this computer company for their “Wall of Fame.” See https://katherinehilden.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/wall-of-fame-in-lombard/
Lombard2The company has grown and an update was called for. An in-house party was arranged, with lots of food, and I got to draw the new crew members. This is fun. I like computer techies. My relationship with my own PC gets turbulent from time to time, but I enjoy the people who know all about hard drives and video cards. They have a sense of humor, are skeptical, listen between the lines, are often musical, and have good hair, even when they’re bald. Sorry about that last bit, I really just like chatting with people who are as alert as these folks are. Thank you again, Laura.

This young computer company is located in a leafy corporate park in Lombard.  The offices are spacious with good art on the walls. Dress is casual. Hey, everybody knows that we do our best thinking when we’re wearing sandals!  The reception area in the front is comfortably furnished but it needed something distinctive on the walls.  Ta-tah!  The office manager thought of caricatures.  She organized a little Friday lunch on the grounds and invited me to draw all of these thirty clever people, which I did amid much chatting in three hours. I thoroughly enjoyed this crowd.

I haven’t talked about technique in a while.  Here’s a tip when you judge a caricature:  few lines, the fewer 13SinglePath4bthe better.  That’s why I put Marty in the lead position here.  Few lines AND it looks like him.  The likeness, of course, is key.  If it doesn’t look like the person…well, what can you say, it’s embarrassing and a waste of T & M.  To get a likeness in a few minutes, like 3 or 4 (which was the case here), takes a lot of practice and then a lot of concentration. I love this work.

Here’s what the incomplete display looked like that afternoon.  Thank you, Laura!
