Dilly Dally

Got to see Toronto alt/punks Dilly Dally on tour in DC last fall.  DC9 was the perfect venue for it.  My favorite show of 2015.  Got a little creep drawing and photogging in as well.  These three paintings just sort of happened all at once.  Trying to capture the energy of this manic crew was a real challenge.  Did a little bit of experimenting with mixed media and collage paint peels.  Fun.  The band is heading back out on tour, but the fates are not in my favor this time around, I'm going to miss their show at U Street Music Hall. at the end of April.  If you like the paintings- go check the band out.  They kill it.  http://www.dillydallyband.com/
This one feels just right to me

This is on a very small canvas and I really struggled to get it done




Electric
Just hung these up at Olive Lounge in Takoma Park, MD, along with six other paintings from the "Meet The Band" series.

Art restoration?  Dawn, that's easy, right?

So, um, pigments were only black and white?
You have twenty seconds to comply.

Not convinced...

Now seriously, Linda and I here.  Wow, like old friends.

Best drawing of the night?
Best one?

These two, so fun.  Even got to chill later on.  Reg and And... you all are ok.

Creeper Central Deluxe

Here's a few folks that stopped in the last time I was doing the "Creeper" thing in Hyattsville at the 2015 Artomatic.  I had fun.  They had fun.  Cookies.  Some drawing happened.  Etc.
Adorable and very patient.

Fish pop?

Sweet.  I really dig this one.

This one too!


Dude!

DUDE!

What's the deal, weirdo?

Easily the funniest conversation of Artomatic... so far.



These guys wanted to do round two, but I had a bit of a line.  I'm still game!


These guys... so nice.


What an awesome and patient participant.  She was all about it!

I recall this woman making some sort of comment like "I would totally DO the woman in that painting."  Whoa.
So pumped!
Even more pumped!!!
Still two more chances to do it up.  December 4th 7-10 and December 12th (closing night) time TBD.  More info:
