About 70 artists will throw their doors open for visitors that weekend. I can ONLY be there on Sunday, due to a prior commitment on Saturday (as Rhoda Draws A Crowd, I will be creating caricature entertainment at a wedding reception…gotta pay the rent!)

“Naked Ladies” show in Oakland

I arrived at the SOMAR opening for the “Naked Ladies” exhibit, and was delighted to see my “Two Zaftig Rachels” hanging in an excellent spot. Femily and Christine from Femme Cartel  were  very enthusiastic about my work, and introduced me to a number of patrons who also showered the painting (and me) with praise.

If that wasn’t excitiing enough, I strolled through the “art Murmur” street fair, and stumbled upon a van that could ONLY be inhabited by Android Jones, creator of this Painter 12 signature artwork.

Rhoda Draws 164 faces in 3 days!

8 caricatures created by Rhoda at Oracle OpenWorld 2012Oracle OpenWorld was an even better gig than the year before and the year before that. I had a few attendees who found me again after I drew them last year…one fellow who came back for his third year. Here are just a few of the  caricatures I created as “booth babe” for BlitzMasters, a small woman-owned company based in Seattle. I have a feeling I’ll be doing more events with these folks.

Rhoda Draws A Crowd! @ Oracle OpenWorld

Attention all who plan to attend the annual Oracle OpenWorld Expo at Moscone Center in San Francisco next week. I will be creating digital caricatures of attendees for a company called “Blitzmasters” at booth #3313. I’ll post some of my favorite drawings on these pages, after the show.
