Monster Drawing Rally IV

This is the yearly party at the art museum, where scores of artists sit down in the courtyard and create artworks that are sold to support the museum's youth programs.

I started out just sketching the crowd, which means doing whichever person happened to be in my line of sight.

I noticed that many of the women were wearing little black dresses.  In fact, at least three of them were wearing the exact same little black dress, with a halter top tied in the back and a flouncy skirt.











There was also a Darth Vader-ish person.

He was actually much more intricate than I was able to get down.  Cause he got up and left, going out into the crowd.











The first shift was ending just about then.  I walked past the tables of adult artists, and found, in the sculpture garden, a model posing for a bunch of kids.

Sketchcrawl in Ladd's Addition

Deb had organized an impromptu sketchcrawl for a visitor from Hamburg.  A few of us met in the coffee shop at the center of Ladd's Addition, and then scattered through the neighborhood.

I headed vaguely towards the south, where Deb had said there was an interesting church-like building with statues.  And found it.


I read the first part of the name as Greek characters.  But when I got home and asked google, it said that this was the "I AM" sanctuary.

Delaying this sketch crawl by a week to the 4th Saturday, because I most likely have a conflict.
