Middle of the night. And here I am Drawing as usual. Just from photos of people on the web. Here are a few that I just finished. I like the Artwork:

Cure Cancer

Cure Cancer. Please.

Excellent Caricatures. Most of the Photographs were fuzzy. But this event was too important not to post. I was hired (for the 2nd time? the 3rd time?) to draw at the Party at the McDonald's House in NYC. They help kids who have Cancer there -- apparently they have a Party for them every year.

It's interesting for me to realize that these aren't just 'People With Cancer'. They are fully-rounded people with all Life Experiences - not just the Cancer. I see teens and I wonder if this affects their Schooling and Dating. I see children and I wonder about their perception of Life. What could they be thinking - these young children - who are handed over for 'Treatment' ?

I approach this job as I do all my jobs. Trying to help people love themselves just the way they are. Self-Acceptance. So if someone is bald, I draw them bald. Bald and Beautiful don't have to be mutually exclusive of each other.

But understandably, some people don't want to see their Reality. That's what happened with beautiful Gia. The little pre-schooler stopped for a Caricature with her Mother. She was bald. I drew her that way. Just like I drew another girl (Megan) that way. See how beautifully I can draw what I see? No matter how heart-breaking it is, I try to look at Reality:

But little Gia freaked out when she saw her beautiful picture. Ran away with it, so I couldn't get a photograph. Her beautiful Mother actually took the moment to care about My feelings? I'm bowled over by how exceptionally kind some people can be. Who would expect this Mother to care about anyone else besides her daughter at this moment!?! Before running to catch up with her daughter, Gia's Mother quickly explained that the girl had had a rough day - She came to this Party directly from her 'Treatment'. And she handed me this card:

I hope you Readers of Fun (what my website is about) will be serious for a moment and follow up the plea on Giavanna's "business card".

So here are the most visible photos that I took that day. Some came out fuzzy, but they're very important. Pictures of people who had Cancer, and pictures of people who care about them. My heart goes out to all of them:

Clearing up. Here are a few pictures that slipped out from 3 different jobs. Just the world all thrown together:
