My first realization that they could live together in the same universe was when I saw that Homer had a cold one at Mo's. So Sacramento, thank you for bringing caricature art together with beer. Now there were other art forms represented, but I will always be prejudice to cartoons and frothy adult beverages.
I woke up remembering that I promised to make change in 2017. I promised that I would participate. I promised myself to think that I am still young. I walked the 6 miles from Oak Park to the Capitol Building. And I carried on my back my gift to the people: 2 chairs, an easel, paper, and some pens and colors. I am ready to share my gift of caricature art with the many faces of Sacramento in honor of Dr. King.
New Year's Eve is a wonderful time for celebrating the past year's events, and embracing the changes coming for the next year. Having an opportunity to share this time with others who have so much to celebrate is an honor.
Sometimes a caricature artist has to look at live caricature drawing as a challenge. I imagine how much likeness can I capture in just a few minutes. How many faces can I sketch in one hour? I do appreciate the organization of getting staff member in and out of the seats immediately upon my set-up. I was my usually engaging self, but I tried to keep the banter to a minimum. I would still call these grayscale caricatures because I put some amount of shading on each piece. I took pictures of each guest, and I reached 18 in just a bit over an hour. I appreciate Nicolette for making this day possible, and to the great amount of cheer from everyone at F&B.
