A post Tax Day Dr. Sketchy was held last night at the Belmont in Hamtramck. This time we were treated to two spectacular models from Spag Burlesque. The crowd was a little thin at the start, but soon filled in with the regular art monkeys. Poor lighting made for a challenge in picking out what watercolors I was using at first, but Sean got the lights turned up and I could tell blue from green at last. I even managed to fill up the remainder of my Moleskine watercolor sketchbook. And to top it off? The Red Wings beat Columbus in game 1 in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs! Woooo! (Yes Tammie, I really want them to win, I just don't think they're going all the way this year. Call me a stick in the mud)!!
Tomorrow I'm headed down to Columbus for S.P.A.C.E., the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo. I've got some wares to peddle, which I'll fill y'all in about later. I'll be sharing some table space with the great Matt Feazell and the amazing Suzanne Baumann.
Maybe I'll wear my Red Wings jersey so I can get beat up while I'm down there in Blue Jackets territory.
Here are my sketches from last night. Some better than others. I'll leave it to you to figure out which are which.
