Photos of an Unveiling

Stefani sent me these photos taken at the unveiling of the doodle I did of her parents with the grandchildren.  I really enjoy seeing these kind of pictures.  Generally my only feedback comes through e-mail text.  I try to measure reaction by the number of exclamation marks and words used to describe my client's reaction.  But, As the saying goes: "A picture is worth..."  It would appear that their doodle was well appreciated—there even what appears to be clapping at one point.  An ovation!  Wow!  Could even Rembrandt ask for more?  Hardly!  Thanks Stefani for sending the pics to me.  They're great!!! (Note: three exclamation marks.)

It's a funny thing, these caricatures that I do.  I take a piece of paper, work with it a little while, and then turn it into something that people end up prizing.  I always feel honored, and amazed that they put them in places of importance in their homes—over a desk, by a collection of family photos, near the toilet, wherever. It does my heart good to see people enjoying something that I had the chance to create for them.  I guess that I'm kind of like Santa with a pencil.
