This was a well-planned event, with me being booked three months before.  The grand ballroom at the Rosemont CC is huge and the hallways reminded me that we now have seven billion people on the planet—might as well plan for them showing up some evening.  The band played Roaring Twenties tunes with a sweet clarinet, to fit the dominant theme of the evening.  Women wore hats and strands of pearls, guys showed up in dark shirts. A cigarette girl in fishnet stockings was giving away chocolate cigars and flashing rings, one size fits all. On the dance floor, Charleston lessons for all.  Everybody was in such a good mood, the five hours passed in a rhinestone flash.

Again, I’ll show just a small selection of the dozens of drawing (at least 50 people) from Saturday night and the reactions when I turn the drawing around and they first see it.  In this post I’m only showing the drawings with people wearing outer garments, though the women will be in low cut dresses.  In the next post, “Cleavage and Thongs,”  I’ll have drawings of people who didn’t have time to get fully dressed before rushing to this much anticipated party or who were more or less dressed but so sexy that the only way to draw them was un.

Thank you, Missy and Todd!


The woman, above, was due and not sure she would make it through the evening.  this big laugh must have been  good for her and the baby and the father.

Then there are instances where I don’t steady the camera in my right hand and the picture’s blurriness conveys the dynamics of the evening.
