01-08-11 Father Daughter Dinner Dance, Sutter Club, Sacramento, CA

I believe this is the 5th year in a row that I've drawn at this event. I cultivate quite a few regular clients with the same gig from year to year. It's always fun and because it's in Sacramento I get to see some caricature artist's I don't normally run into. This evening the other artists included Sue Johnson, Karen Fulk, and Mike Tofanelli.

Here are some of my caricature drawings from the event.
