The Unchained Tour, Heart-Shaped Tour: September 2012

 Went out on my second tour with the Unchained tour last month. The bus stayed strong, even up in the mountains around Asheville, which was a pleasant surprise to all involved. One of my favorite parts about the whole thing- besides getting to be in the presence of all these remarkable folks and travel all around the southeast- is that once I drive the bus where it needs to be, I get to hang out and watch everyone else run around and get ready for the shows. This gives me plenty of time to observe and capture moments in my sketchbook, both on and off stage.
The musicians in a few of the pics are from the Mike Dillon Band who played after our show in Boone, NC, and I must say, completely rocked that place! It was one of those great moments I love when you just stumble upon an incredible live show.  Also, there's one drawing in here that wasn't done by me; that drawing was done by Neil Gaiman. We have this nice little nook on the bus that has two bench seats facing each other with a table in between, diner style, and this is where Neil sat most of the time. I made the proposal that if he were to get bored on any of our commutes and wanted to doodle, I had the perfect piece of paper for him to do so, which was of course a page in my sketchbook- so I left it out on the table and he did so.

My recollection of the Nina Simone statue in Tryon, NC.
Here's a picture of the actual statue.

I got stuck in the film room operating the house lights one night. I was too far removed from  everybody to really do any observational drawing, so here's what resulted. I'll swallow your soul!!!

Romeo Cologne @ the Clermont

Here's a little something I whipped up while rockin' to the sweet sounds of DJ Romeo Cologne at the Clermont in ATL. It was actually my birthday night, all kinds of a good time!

Unchained Tour

 I've been going out on the road with the Unchained Tour for the last handful of months. It's always a great time with great folks. Here are some doodles I did while out with them at the beginning of the year. I've got some more from our most recent outing, but the college won't let me in to use their scanners anymore- so until I scrap up the change to buy one of my own, I'll be posting old stuff I should have posted a long time ago.
A force to be experienced.

Sketchbook Show @ Little Beasts

I had the great opportunity to be amongst some of Savannah's finest, all stripped down.

The Artist's Hand (A Show of Appreciation for Robyn Reeder) Nov. 2011

9 artists paint a panel of the same portrait with exactly the same composition and scale.
Each of the 9 panels is cut into 9 uniform squares (think tic-tac-toe board).
The show is hung and the viewing audience is invited to "curate" the
show by interchanging the pieces.
