Two More

Experimenting with different media at the Olive Lounge-
This was a tough angle and the white Sharpie marker makes her look much older than she was.  Still...

The view of this guy constantly was blocked by people at the bar.  I also made the classic mistake of putting the hand on his face and then he never repeated that look.  Still...

Artist Nights Creeps

Two folks I had a chance to sketch at the most recent Olive Lounge Artist Night.  No plans to do any more of these events just yet, but ... probably will again in the fall.  Keep your eyes peeled.  Sign up as a follower on this here blog.  That's one way to get it done.

Sam had never creeped before, but was willing to give it a try.  That makes him a rock star.

This cat wasn't saying much, but he seemed to be in the right place.

Mini Comics/Zines to Buy with Your Cash Money

FYI, DC Creepers has more than just a couple of mini books and zines to purchase in various DC/Baltimore area stores.  This could be done via the internet, but wouldn't you rather go and check out a really wonderful book/record/comics store?  Sure you would.  Here's a list:

Atomic Books (Baltimore): Thank You For Your Cooperation: Robocop 1987 fanzine, Vinyl Vagabonds - record zines, Better Know a Ramen - instant ramen zine, Mr. Squibly's Pooch FANG (book #1 of a three part story), Evil Squibly (book #2)

Big Planet Comics (Bethesda): Thank You For Your Cooperation: Robocop 1987 fanzine, Better Know a Ramen - instant ramen zine, Mr. Squibly's Pooch FANG (book #1 of a three part story), Evil Squibly (book #2)

Fantom Comics (Dupont Circle): Thank You For Your Cooperation: Robocop 1987 fanzine (ALSO three original drawings from the book in nice frames up on the wall), Verse Scribble Verse #1 - musician portraits/haiku, Mr. Squibly's Pooch FANG (book #1 of a three part story), Evil Squibly (book #2)

Smash Records: Thank You For Your Cooperation: Robocop 1987 fanzine, Better Know a Ramen - instant ramen zine, Vinyl Vagabonds - record zines

Don't see the books?  Make sure to ask the store to assist you in finding them.  Maybe they are sold out?  Wouldn't that be nice... except you still want said books.  Tell you what, get in touch if you're having a hard time and we'll make it happen.

P.S. Think you know another spot where my books would be a good fit?  Let me know!

Sketch Lounge Sketches

More from Sketch Lounge 12.

These drawings happened very fast.  The energy was there and the DJs were doing it right.  There was one other piece I did which sold right at the end.  It said "I Love It," but sadly, no picture.
Omar, owner of the establishment, was extremely kind even though he melted.

Who the heck is this guy?

First drawing of the night.  Kind of strange.

Melody was sitting and drawing right across from the Creeper.  This isn't her.

Last mash up of the night came out well.  Wendy asked how to bring a sketchbook to a concert.  Haha.

It's all respect.

Something from the metro ride home.

Sketch Lounge Peoples

The Creeper investigated the semi-annual "Sketch Lounge" in Adams Morgan.  Set in a spot called Hierarchy, a sly little basement gallery/bar.  The place was sardined with super talented and hep folks doing their thing.  Art of all sorts was being sketched with talent ranging from moderate to mind blowing.  Hannah Dean gets a shout out because she's of the latter category.  And there was pizza.  Here's what some of the creeped look like. 
Frank protects people from getting roofied.  Cool by me.

Jessica was painting her ass off.  Beautiful.

Had a spontaneous "draw off" with Shoe Man.  Think we all know who took the title.

Shoe Man's drawings.  What's with the monster hand?

Thomas digs art.  He was in good company.

Kefa Crew

Fun pics from the DC Creepers" reception at Kefa in February.  It was jammed!  And also a tiny space so... DOUBLE JAMMED!  Thanks everyone who made it out for a creep or just to chill.
Last creeps of the night.  The creeper was toast.

We had a draw off.  Very cool to do this with somebody you don't know.

These guys are awesome!

One of the weirder drawings of the night, and def the best quote.

Awesome sauce!

Matt classes up the joint.

These guys were hilarious and so incredibly into it.
