Art Battle & lung nuggets



On a balmy Saturday night a few weeks back, Don Kilpatrick & I hobbled together some supplies and attended the Art Battle at the Russell Industrial Complex where we faced off against students, alums and fellow artists in the Art Battle. Don painted a gorgeous female tree figure whereas I slugged back some caffeine and drew volumes of art (31 drawings in three hours- geez, I must be slowing down). The Russell wasn't heated, we were next to people using aerosols, there was dust & grit all over the walls, throbbing music, strange people asking odd questions, it was smoky, and we didn't win the big cash prizes.

Even though we loved it, we did go home smelling as though we rolled around in a chimney or ashtray. I'm sure our poor wives smelled us coming a block away too.

Hey Dave,

thanks for the comment. I was debating whether or not to put my phone number, but that makes sense. Thanks!
