Drawing Caricatures overlooking the Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC

Posted Dec 2014

Once again, I was hired to draw Caricatures for the Thanksgiving Event that Momentum Worldwide prepares for some very Special People. We get a beautiful venue near the end of the event where we can overlook the Big Parade.

Here are some of the pictures I drew this year.

Such nice open people. I felt glad to let them in on my Fun:

I surprised this woman by drawing her picture while she was watching the Parade:

and here it is! The Macy Day Parade!

Senator Jerry Stevenson

Posted Nov 2014

I just came back from an Event in Reno ~ I flew Coach as usual. Squashed next to my fellow passengers, if you know what I mean. So I felt surprised that it was a U.S. Senator! And his wife. Senator Jerry Stevenson and his wife Susan from Utah.

I found myself in the unique position of having a Senator's ear for hours ~ not that we spoke the whole time of course. They were both quite cordial.

So much to do getting home at the moment ~ I have to sort through my own event's ideas as well as get back into the swing of all the new events that I have to be ready for. But I'm posting about this meeting sort of like bookmarking my experience ~ hoping I'll remember to post the Caricature that I subsequently drew of Republican Senator from Utah.

BTW, we spoke quite candidly ~ of both personal situations And public situations. It was quite an experience to see how clearly a person can speak about political positions when he is the person whose opinion can really make a difference. Felt different than hearing a private citizen's opinions.

For example, I felt impressed with Senator Stevenson's response to my confusion about Obamacare. Senator Stevenson compared it to the feelings about the Social Security System. Originally people might have been scared of it, but over time, they've come to see the good that it can do. He said that Obamacare is a good idea, but needs a bit of tweaking before it would be satisfying. He swung so comfortably from our chitchat about our trips and our businesses into major political questions. Candid and unedited.
