Feeling like a dinosaur, did a drawing gig last Friday at a club with Jacky Tran and friends (great to see her again – after what, years?). Interesting experience, drawing standing up holding on to my sketchbook and trying not to worry too much about what color I was using… my main light source was a red light bulb a couple of inches above my head, so I couldn’t tell one color from another (anything red, yellow or orange was invisible on the paper). The gig was to draw the DJs performing because photography wasn’t allowed there, so it was a great chance to do some life sketching. Boy, am I rusty.
First time I’ve been back to Williamsburg since I lived there when I was still in college. It looks just as run-down as I remember, but boy, are there a lot of pubs and clubs…and young white people there now(!)
Overall, I had a great time, and it was good to get back in the saddle again
