All the way live (baby baby baby)
Thanks to everybody who came out last Saturday to get down to thesounds of the Analog Addicts while myself, Katie and Chris painted. That shit was a blast, and from what I heard (and saw) you all did, too.
Let me start with my trip to Milwaukee on Friday. the eight of us (Sang, Anne, Jason, Adam, Jake, Brandy and Katie) braved a snowstorm to watch Intel spin with Why B and Kid Cut Up. Milan painted some ill shit. I jumped on the boards for a second. Saw Wayne, who I haven't seen in a while. um.... Then six of us decided to ride back in my car that same night. Poor brandy! Thanks to Sang for diving. STEAK AND SHAKE! STEAK AND SHAKE! I got home around 6am or so. slept in, ate lunch at hot doug's with sang and adam, napped, then got ready for the jam.
Saturdays live art night was off the hook (as I mentioned above). Didn't think I would make it on time, but it all worked out. When I do the live art thing, I usually work on muliple pieces (as does Jim and Dave and Milan). While one piece dries, I work on another. Or if one piece is a disaster, I work on another, then come back to try and save it. This board at Trevia had to be at least 6+ feet. I don't usually sketch out my paintings either (for live art, that is). I'll lay down a base color for the b.g. then improvise the figures, etc. Since this was the only piece I was working on, I thought I better bust a sketch first. Now, people asked if I have an idea of what to paint before I show up. The answer is no, I don't. The sketch I layed down (with a light grey marker) was straight up spontaneity. I did not think I'd finish the piece at all. There is about a foot left blank at the top of the board that my short arms couldn't reach. I'm a mutant. Anyway, at the end of the night, Jake was goin off with those jams. I turn around to see people dancing and singing and having an all around good time. Fuck yeah. I can't wait to do it again. Thanks again to the Analog Addicts and Trevia for doing this.......
