I heard the phone was ringing off the hook at the mall office, with many asking if I was drawing caricatures today. They didn’t ask about a caricaturist. I was told they specifically were asking for me, my name. I was touched to hear this news from the office assistant manager.
As I was setting up an hour before I began drawing caricatures, the crowd (pack) was lining up. My first victim and friend was Zach, who is studying to be a caricature artist, himself. You can see some of his art work on Facebook.

After drawing Zach, he stood by me to keep me company, watched how I draw my caricatures and took photos for me.
On the last half hour, I counted 10 cards and handed them out, YET I actually drew 12 individuals in the last half hour. I couldn’t believe my speed, but I did draw quick sketches and ended on the hour.! Thanks so much for your help, Zach.
Later, we went out for a bite to eat with Zach and his mom and partner, Pati! I had art markers in my purse, so Zach and I were drawing all over the restaurant’s place mats.
This was a special day to remember.
