CHICAGO WED. NIGHT DRINK AND DRAW
First off, I need you guys to help us name our drawing night. We can't think of shit, and it's just not cool with out a name. I mean, with out some catchy tagline, i barely want to show up. So, help us, seriously.
Anyway, not much to say about tonights sketches. We discussed a few topics, I thru out Fairy Tales and it was on! This was a great topic, and we had record number of people there tonight (12 I think). Greg Titus damn near did a cover. Mike Norton did 3 that I loved. they were like full on scenes. The best thing was, the topic was broad enough to allow everyone to draw something different.
I won't talk about the mistakes, or the ideas tonight. That's not what the night is about for me. To me, it's about the pure sketch. Trying not to erase, just letting my hand do something. The first few drawing nights i tried to do great pieces, and ended up with shit. Now, I just run my mouth and doodle and I am pleased at the end. I like drawing ideas for idea sake. Not worrying if I did a good finish. Tonight was fun, and hopefully the pieces reflect that.
