CHICAGO WED. DRINK AND DRAW
Ok, I don't drink, but i draw the hell out of shit. So, for those of you who don't know, Wed. nights are drawing night here in Chicago. A bunch of local artists get together to draw at a bar/grill on Wed. Great time, great food, and somewhat ok drawings...at least from me. Mike Norton always draws something cool, and then bitches about stuff. I love that guy!!
Here's how the night goes. we write a bunch of random words down on post its. we lay those on the table, face down. We each draw a random post its and put them together. For example, I pick a post it that says "Giants", Norton picks a post it that says "Ninjas" and there is one subject. Giant Ninjas. We had 4 topics of combined terms. Post Apoc./Mad Scientist, Giant Ninjas, Android Pilot, and something else that we later decided sucked and thru on the floor. Then, you just eat, drink, bullshit, and draw as many of the ideas as you want while you're there.
I went with the Android Pilot first. The down side to T's bar is the lighting, it's tough to see in there (i'm bring a lamp next week) so you don't know if you're doing ok or not.
Then, I rocked out a quick doodle of the giant ninja getting stabbed in the head by a normal ninja. This one is loose, and super fast, but i fucking love it. I'm going to do a quick 3 or 4 page story out of it in the coming weeks. I really love the idea.
So, there you go. Some quick doodle while talking and hanging with friends. Very fun!
