Goofy Faces at Oakland Community College

Robert Bauer - Wednesday, January 13, 2010


For the past 2 days, Goofy Faces was on had to draw students at Oakland Community College-Auburn Hills as part of their welcome week for the new semester. Each day, Robert spent 2 hours drawing new and returning students in exchange for their contact info for the college. Not a bad trade off!  Students were happy to oblige and the student life department now has a bunch of new leads for their services.

Senior All-night Party Season

Robert Bauer - Monday, June 01, 2009

It's that time of year once again when high schools across the U.S. hold senior all-night parties or lock-in parties. It varies from state-to-state but the goal is the same: offer graduating high school seniors a fun, safe alternative to throwing their own parties or bashes on their own. They must be working because they have been around here in Michigan since I was a senior.  That was...at least a couple decades ago!  This is my 24th year in a row drawing at senior all-night parties. The kids all look the same age and I keep getting older.  All these parties occur over a 2 or 3 week period at the end end of the senior school year.  So many of these events happen on consecutive nights in early June. This means most caricature artists, as well as other entertainers, become night owls for the beginning of the summer. Senior All-night parties begin as late as 11PM and last until 5AM!  So few of us sleep much in early June.  You think by now, I'd be used to this but it can hit you like a ton of bricks every year.  And getting older doesn't help much.  Here are photos from 2 recent All-nighters; One from Brandon High school and last night at Clawson High school. As always, the lines were long, the kids were happy and everyone enjoyed their caricatures. Students are much bolder than many other guests so it allows many of us caricature artists to get a little wilder with our drawing.

Goofy Faces Draws at the University of Toledo

Robert Bauer - Friday, March 27, 2009

Goofy Faces had 2 artists on hand at a recent student event at the University of Toledo. College students had a weekend with family members who could tour the campus and even stay with them overnight to see what college life is like. Goofy Faces drew caricatures of students and family members all morning long during a reception breakfast. Many colleges have events similar to this where adding caricature artists makes the event even more memorable.
