Aquent got off to an early start Thursday with a knock-out Halloween party, complete with spiderwebs, a DJ and great food. Here are some of the costumes (including Yours Truly as a Devil-ess):

Me in Red & Black

Me in Red & Black

Friday night (10/24) was the best night I could ever imagine: and all thanks to Brenda! She got me a gig at a terrific party at Cipriani Wall Street, whereby we could eat fabulous food, drink as much champagne as we wanted, AND get paid $200 an hour (for 4 hours) for doing quick portraits of the people at the party. What a great way to meet wonderful people from every conceivable corner of the earth!

Brenda and Steve were in the “Blue Zone”; Zito and I had the “Red Zone”. We each had our own “living statue” watching as we furiously scribbled away. There were shadow dancers, sand artists, and character actors who impersonated “artists”. Famous paintings were projected on the ceiling, and a giant palette with crossed brushes was at the door. There was a lively band and lots of dancing (the statues were briefly replaced by dancers on pedestals to get everyone going.) And, of course, there was US! The photos below tell the story:
