Love & Marriage fair

Last weekend Hugo and I participated the Love & Marriage fair in de Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, where we tried to make future brides and grooms aware of the fact that their wedding party would be so much more fun with a caricaturist...

These fairs can be very busy and besides drawing you have talk a lot, give people loads of infomation etc. So on saturday, because Hugo had a gig and couldn't be there, I had the help of a real fake mayor. His name is Michiel, during the week he is an insurance man and actually he is as bald as a billiard ball. But it was all part of the show. He is a born entertainer and was a great help.

This lady was a "wedding nanny", she took care of the children when their parents were having a good time during the wedding day.

Our kids attended one day and luckily they had their Nintendo DS with them, because the fair was a bit boring for them. I hope the fact that they could sit inside a big stretched limo eased the pain a bit.

This is Joris' moment of glory: sitting behind the steering wheel of a Ferrari F355 Spider!

Hah, great pics, Marion! Good luck with it. I used to take my kids while I worked fairs when they were little--they took their hand-held Nintendo Gameboys--but they had to make do in lawn chairs, not limos! :-)
