June 2012 Live Event Caricature - Part I

June found Big Al at more than 20 events. High School, Middle School, Elementary School and College Events! Weddings, Baby Shower, Corporate Picnics, 1st and 50th Birthdays!
The first event of the month was at Stanford for the Rinc Reunion.

Later that same day Big Al was in Livermore for another long time client, St. Michael School, for their 8th Grade graduate event.
The night cap was a wedding at Bridges Golf course in Danville. These four said they were cousins.
June 2nd found Big Al drawing at a Baby Shower in Walnut Creek at a Skipolini's Pizza.
After the baby shower it was off to San Jose to draw at the Dolce Hayes Mansion for Livermore High School's Senior Ball.

A few days forward and it's another 3 event day. 
The first event of the day was a 5th Grade Grad Party at a swim center.
The 2nd event was a return to Cal State East Bay Concord.

The night cap this time was Bella Vista High's Grad Night at Golfland Sunsplash in Roseville, CA.
I've drawn at this event for quite a few years now.

June to be continued ...
