What a joy it was reprising my role as VIP and celeb portrait artist at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival’s gift lounge by B.A.D. PR! I had a great time last year so it was a pleasure to be back.
For the weekend of September 8-9, the lounge took place on the 44th(!) floor of the Ritz Carlton residence in downtown Toronto. I was lucky enough to be placed in the plush bedroom with Pope Joans Lingerie next to a sprawling view of the lakefront. Aside from sketching portraits, I had fun meeting fellow gifters, guessing the a-listers who were rumored to drop by (apparently Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez ALMOST made an appearance) and sampling the delicious treats.
