Northampton Fire Relief

Heyas, long time no post? Yeah, working 3 jobs sucks. I haven't been to the office in a month. But I've got good news!

Well, it's not great news, actually. We've got an arson in Northampton, apparently, and the multi-talented Ella Longpre has been kind enough to start work organizing a benefit concert on behalf of those affected, featuring many of the Valley's most popular acts. I just finished off a piece for promotional purposes, and here it is (hint: it's a map):

Check out the Facebook event page. No dates set at the moment, but in the next few days things should be getting locked down with a real website. I'll repost the info when it's available.

Fuck Yoouuuuu it's Time for Robots

Yeah man, birds are down with robots too:

Especially ones with fantastic thighs:

One of Many Possible Spellings

Spelling was never really our strong suit at Drinking and Drawing, but this page represents a spectacular collapse of the public school system:
Oh, and a drawing.

Well, I think I'm finally done being sick and I'm beginning to emotionally adjust to working regular days in an office (sad-face), so it must be time to pick up with posting again. In the spirit of Thursdays-past, here are some exquisite corpses created at Hugo's:

Walt is My New Hero, and Other Stories

So this guy -- *ahem* -- man I met last week with Jaron at Hugo's buys us drinks for hours, tells us about working at DEC and CA during the birth of the information age, has friends who have won Turing Awards (what?), teaches us how to win at bar games (or, at least, that we aren't going to win against him), does car bombs with us, and then commiserates on how much drinks cost at The Basement (too much):

I woke up the next day with a hangover and about 8 more IQ points. Much more successful than this night in New York three weeks ago when I just woke up dead:

Sorry for all the text, Walt just brings the poet out in me.

How Love Saved Britney (Via Collage).

This is neither drawing, nor was it done at the bar, but somehow I feel that it embodies the essential spirit of DnD anyway. I remembered the other day that I might like to draw food a lot, but I am still also a collage artist who obsessively follows the saga of Britney Spears.
#1: He's The One.
#2: She's Made Huge Strides.
#3: From Sickness To Success (Napkins, Please).
#4: Savour Each Moment.
#5:'Shut Up'.
Will love really save Britney? Or any of us? Will cheeseburgers save us, or fries? The answers, only on this blog.
xoxo, liz.

San Francisco, etc.

Boy, I've been traveling a lot lately. First I went to New York, then I went to Boston, then San Francisco. "On business." Wait, that's not a euphemism. First up, Boston (in the cold, with time to kill):

And in San Francisco (or at least SFO) with more time to kill:

Witch, Tunnel of Love, etc.

Alright, well Lisette managed to get my ass out of the house on a Friday night (for once) to see some bands play at The Elevens. First up was Tunnel of Love, whose costumes I adore:

Followed by Witch, which (!) I'm informed involves J Mascis in some way. Perhaps on drums. Whatever he was up to on stage, this is what they sounded like:

Happy Thanksgiving

My festive interpretation of the classic Thanksgiving Turkey Craft project we all know and love:
It's actually made by the same process of "tracing hands" as the traditional model, but in this case the instructions were read by an animator.

I'm Not Dead Either!

Hooray! Rin & I are in fact still alive. But I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen over here. However, looking over some old sketchbooks of mine recently, it turns out that I still can be found drawing at the bar, old school DnD, on occasion.
9.22.09. Chris' Apartment (but bar-like, due to the jukebox).
10.6.09. Hugo's.
10.17.09. Hugo's again.
(The People's Pint rules. Noho people, venture out there more often.
Damn fine establishment.)
Moral: It's still fun to draw in bars.

A Portrait of Hugo's

I work in cycles. First it's black and white ink portraits, then it's color landscapes, and then... well, you can fill in the _____:

The Vivian Girls

Drawn at their show at the Market Hotel on November 6th, in the dark (naturally):
I actually went to college with Katy (above) briefly, which is how I manage to keep running into her and the rest of The Vivian Girls whenever I hang out with Brian.

Cassie (below) also manages to remember who I am every time we meet, which is strange considering how many thousands of people they must be flung against every week:

About 6 Weeks Ago

The music scene of Northampton was pretty wrapped up in the passing of Tim Young at the end of September. A very sad event, really, and I did some drawings at his memorial show. Never posted them though:

Well, I thought they should do something besides languish in my sketchbook. Nice guy; he'll be missed.

Like an Old Timey Photograph

Man, this is like one big black and white image dump. See if I can space these out a bit better next week. Not much else to say here, I've just been drawing drawin' draw'n:

Yeah, that's about how one feels sometimes at the end of a night of Drinking and Drawing. Or so surveys suggest.

Various things.

These are a few drawings from various points.

First off, two of the members of Little Teeth, they are awesome and from the coast opposite us.

A random fellow at the bar. Having a ponytail and a beard is a pretty sure way to get me to draw you, whether you are male or female.

A sketch of a relatively studious person, which can be found only at the Yellow Sofa.

Oh Man, Let the Halloweening Begin.

So Halloween has finally descended (and abated), and boy were there a lot of crazies to draw. Like this man, drumming at Sierra on the 29th:

And this couple at WWII on the 30th:

Although that last drawing is my interpretive representation of the subjects' inner cosplay goals, this next guy pretty much looked like a legit paranormal investigator (less the Busch):

Finally we have some of the Williams St. partiers contemplating what's to come next:

More of what comes next, next.

It's Baseball Season, I Guess

Or so the television at Hugo's tells me:

Also, a rare treat: I actually scanned two facing pages! Incredible.
