What the hell is a draw-a-thon you might ask? It's when 50 people jam into a small hot sweaty bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to sketch. It starts at 7 PM and goes until 3 in the morning. The bar blocks out the windows and door because the models are nude (I think some should have left their clothes on). Butch Belair, Danny Gregory and I found some seats and then proceeded to draw and drink beer. It was quite a scene. Lots of little art students around. I thought it was great so many people were willing to participate in such an event. This sketch I did was of the other people around me who were busy drawing the models. They seemed more interesting than the models we were drawing. I did a few other drawings I will post next.
