It can be an oddly, lonely time during the holidays for a caricature artist. I go from one event to the next, and I can barely remember the people that I've entertained for hours. Then, every once in a while, an event has folks that are inviting, beyond the standard expectations. Sometimes, they share a drink, and even bring you into a game or two. The respect I have for those who plan for the enjoyment of all participants.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night. Especially when I get a chance to capture the holiday through caricature. I was brought in as the alternative entertainment to a DJ, photo booth, or a carol chorus group. As the guests rolled in, I was busy the entire evening, even extending an hour past the scheduled time.
It helps to have drink tickets, I wish I could have taken more pictures of the Sardi's inspired wall. We had all the pictures taped along the bar walls. But the line was so long that I had to keep moving. The group shot was by request, just so you know. Thank you Andrea for making this night happen.
