Collaborative project and music

Last week I was lucky enough to attend two terrific music events. First was a concert by the Sacramento Symphonic Winds. Simply Sousa was the featured music and the auditorium was packed! Love to hear this rousing music. I did manage to do a few sketches of unsuspecting attendees. I'm finding that using two sizes of pens helps to make my pieces more interesting.


Oh, the other super music event was hearing Jackie Evancho. Oh my, she sings like an angel at age 11. You might check her on youtube.

A collaborative project is now happening. Judi, an artistic friend, and I are going to do a book that has pages which are 8"x8". She does watercolor, oil pastels and oil paints. At the moment, it looks as though I will be doing the lettering, but who knows how I will decorate each page. This is our first set of pages.

Neat work on the faces, they're great, and the page looks really cool, too. Your first book pages are beautiful, they're peaceful and soft and make the reader want to turn the page and begin the journey with you! All my best wishes on this great project!

Great faces. It's may favorite thing to do at music events - lol. At the last concert I went to, they turned down the lights too low, darn them!

The collaboration is magical!! Just beautiful. Your lettering matches her art - great combination.

Lovely sketches! My wife went to a musical in Memphis area last Saturday and she said it was fun.
The lettering looks awesome by the way!
