Here’s what I have going this week, event wise. This does not include commission work, administrative stuff, and all of that boring behind-the-scenes nonsense.
Tonight, Tuesday July 14th, I will be presenting a FREE program at the Amherst Public Library at 7 pm about what I do as a caricaturist.
Thursday, July 16, I will be somewhere in downtown Vermilion, OH, doing caricatures during Third Thursday. TT is a monthly event held every, yes, third Thursday during the summer months with free music and performers performing. It runs from 6 p.m. until dark. Don’t miss it.
Friday, after being at Roxy’s Reads (where the oh-so-swell Mike Leuszler Gallery is) all day, I will be attending the Amherst Marion L. Steele class of 1959 50th class reunion. Coincidentally, that’s my dad’s graduating class. But there’s no nepotism in my getting this gig. I got it because I did a similar service for the class of ’57 (thanks to class member Neal Jenne) a couple years back and Ken Rosenbusch was there with his wife and he remembered me for his big party. Yay!
Saturday, I will be at French Creek Reservation Metropark in Avon at a private event from 2 to 4 pm. It’s a company picnic, which is always a blast. I get to hear good stories at most company picnics. That alone makes it worth the trek.
Sunday, I will be in Mayfield Heights at a graduation party. This was one of the donations I made to WVIZ and WCPN’s annual auction event. Should be fun. And no, I shall not be consuming anything alcohol-based. I have no desire to see how many speed traps exist between there and here.
If you haven’t had the chance yet, feel free to cruise over to Facebook and friend me. Then check out my group, Mike The Art Guy: The Art and Such of Mike Leuszler. Write something on my wall!
