Arthur Ashe Kid's Day at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center

Posted Aug 2015

I was hired to draw at a very special day at the US Open Tennis Event.

Quite exacting ~ I was required to draw on my Client's papers which already had a background all drawn on it by someone else. Okay. But boy was there a lot of writing on those backgrounds. This event had so many names:

US Open

Arthur Ashe Kid's Day

USTA Billie Jean National Tennis Center.......

A lot of protocol ~ credentials, dress-code, wear your id, how to travel re nowhere to park..... I felt like this event had more security than when I did the Artwork at events for the cast of Camp Rock or for Joey Adams of the New York Post or for the Nickelodean Halo Awards. Well..... maybe that's just the security that I saw ~ I'm sure there's a lot more going on at high profile events that I don't see.

But once I got in and started drawing, it just felt like me and a lot of well-behaved people. I felt glad to help mark their day. Here are photos of some of the Caricatures that I drew there on Arthur Ashe Kid's Day. Might look a little limited because I had to make drawings fit their predrawn papers, but it did work to give the people the keepsakes they enjoyed.
