    Event Mural at Holiday Party

    In August, we did an event mural for SLGreen Realty Corp. at their holiday-in-summer party.  The party was held at the Aspen Restaurant in NYC.  The mural was 6 x 4 ft, and I painted much of the mural before hand from photos of the guests at the event.  I incorporated the theme of the event into the mural in which all the guests were skiing down a mountain in Aspen.  Here are some photos of the mural in progress:

    Elizabeth, another caricature artist, and I drew sketches in the tents at FashionWeek  as well as last night at thePeroni Midnight Brunch Party.

    The sketches were really popular, with a long line of guests waiting to be drawn as a fashion runway model, or spectator sitting with celebrities.
