Caricatures Help Celebrate a Rite of Passage
“Coming of age” is celebrated in many cultures; customarily, in the U.S., the transition from childhood to adulthood is often treated as a significant event not only in a young person’s life, but in that of the parents and surrounding family. Whether it’s a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Quinceanera or Sweet 16, the celebration of the occasion can take on wedding-like proportions.
Joel has been fortunate in taking part in these hallmark events, drawing caricatures of the honored subject as well as guests. That includes drawings both live and as Sign-In Boards (see the Wedding page for samples from that milieu). In the meantime, here are some Mitzvah Sign-In Boards…and more.
