cafe sketches

after work on Friday i decided to go spend an hour doing some gesture drawing out in public. i went to Downtown Disney since they have a bunch of free live music playing and LOTS of people sitting and listening and bustling about. it was pretty busy too since it was Friday night.

i listened to this really good violinist who always draws a large crowd. i have a couple of his cds. his name is Drew Tretick.

after a while, you get tired of drawing these characters the same way. sometimes you gotta play with them (just to save your sanity). at work we were all talking about 80's and 90's cartoons that bombed, so it sparked inspiration to draw this quick sketch of Minnie Mouse dressed as this 80's-type rocker (a la Jem from the 80's cartoon) for Halloween. i tried to keep it a bit conservative (in case any big-wigs see it). maybe i'll clean it up later...

anyone remember this cartoon? definitely wasn't my cup o' tea.. haha! could you please pass the Thunder Cats??
