Dr. Sketchy

Every summer there is an "Art Crawl" in the

Warehouse District for the Arts neighborhood.

We all open our doors to the public, and let folks

get a peek at what we do.

Maybe make a sale or two.

This year I was asked to be a "ringer" at the 331 Club.

331 Club is a bar that entertains locals of all types.

We were set up outside, bands playing, eating & drinking,

and lots of vendors.

There were two models dressed in burlesque, posing as

we "sketched."

We had 5 minute poses as the crowd watched us, hoping

to advertise "Dr. Sketchy" to anyone caring to join in.

Drinking & drawing can be fun! I won a few prizes, and

met some interesting people.

I think people enjoy watching art happen, I received many

compliments from total strangers!

The model said she liked my work. She was very pretty.

This painting is gouache on gesso wood panel.

size: 2"x 3.5"

Everyone wants to be able to say that they watched the artist make it. They can always rememeber the experience, unlike the trip to Ikea or Target to pick up some poster or something. It's comforting knowing that there are still things out there that aren't hard pressed and stapmed out a million times in some factory a million miles away.

Very cool.
