drawing on the menu

Posted on Friday 12 January 2007

I love going to a jazz club. I’m not an expert on Jazz at all but I just enjoy the whole experience.
I used to go a lot more often when I lived in the west village. 55 Bar, Fat Cat, Aurther’s, Smalls, were all around the corner from me.
Now I moved to Harlem. It is not the same as west village.. At least I’m close to Smoke which is actually a great little place for jazz.
This is when I went Smoke a few months ago. I I just love to draw when I listen to live jazz. I just totally zone in and don’t think of anything. Nothing more than a mere movement of my hand. Regardless of result, it’s a lot of fun.

I carry my sketchbook everywhere but sometimes, I forget.. I drew on the menu instead this time…

    Ah yes..NYC, land of $5 Budweisers. I cant wait to move there someday soon and draw on jazz bar menus. Really nice sketches- cant think of anything Id rather do more than sit in a cafe, draw, drink, write and listen to jazz.
