>Does this look like me?

>Last night, I went to a work party which celebrated the diverse group of people I work with… It was a fun night with great music and food (once it got to our table!)… Some of the acts were “Sher-E-Punjab” which was an Indian Bhangra Dance group… so much fun!  “Ca Claque”…which brought in some of the Franco-Manitoban culture into the mix… (the fiddle always makes me want to dance, break out the spoons and you so know it’s a party!) Then there was some greetings from various people who were hosting the event.  Then some more music…from “Caimiro Nhusi Band” which was a drumming group from various parts in Africia… and that was also so much fun!  To end off the evening there was a little bit of latin flare… with the “Cubanisimo” latin dancers… and then “Papa Mambo” which is a Latin Jazz Ensemble…  I was pretty tired after a crazy week, but I’m glad I decided to go… it was worth it! 

While there I also had my caricature drawn…. I had only ever had it done once before..(and it really wasn’t that nice of one done!) There’s a bit of a back story, when I started two of my co-workers have this really cool caricature on their office door–of themselves… and I was like.. that’s so cool, I want one! 

Well last night I got one… (I don’t think it will go on my office door…but I think it might find it’s way into my ‘cozy corner office’ onto my book shelf..) 

Here is Tom Andrich hard at work… (by the end of the night, I’m sure he did tons of these…I had mine done early on in the evening..) Here is his website

Yes, that’s me… it was so weird having to sit and have some study my face, being a photographer it’s so wierd being the ‘subject’…
Here’s a shot of me last weekend from a mini-shoot I did…

The end result… but the question is, does it REALLY look like me?

…my answer is a little bit YES, and a little bit NO!!! (but isn’t that what caricatures are all about?!)
It was a great night.. and I’m glad that I have this reminder of it!
