Met up this afternoon at the Great Harvest Bread Co and had a lovely time sketching loaves and chatting with Vicky and Alanna.
Urban Iditarod, a spoof sled-dog race where 100 teams of people dress in absurd costumes and push decorated shopping carts through the city, pouring into downtown. It was fun to see quite a few groups of people huddling around the bridge and the bike path, trying to stay out of the drizzle, eagerly anticipating a cascade of craziness.
But I did follow the race for a short distance, where they stopped for a gigantic dance party outside of an Irish Pub. So, even though these sketches are pretty runny with drizzle and can't catch the full degree of chaos and magic of the event, it's a tiny glimpse of some of the costumed creativity.
since (at least) 2005.
