For a long time I have been going to music events fairly often . . . both because I like to listen to music and because I like to play it -- so sometimes go to open mics.
While there, besides enjoying the music, I usually have a sketchbook with me and will draw some things. Sometimes it is random drawings with abstract lines and shapes, sometimes it is representational, and also sometimes it is representing the people I'm listening to . . . portraits of the musicians who are playing.
I've gotten a pretty big collection of these musician drawings over the past few years, and here are some of them. This is part one, as there are too many to put into one blog post, and I'd like to share some other ones later.
Here is Carl Solomon, a singer-songwriter who I heard playing at a West Coast Songwriters meeting:
And here (below) is a band, Epic Season, who came to play at X-Fest NW in summer 2018.
They had a lot of energy, and it was fun to draw them :) I also very much enjoyed their music.
