Charcoal sketches, February 02, 2009

Charcoal drawings with one of those wolf pencils I have had for 15 years, these images start to reoccur in my work and later I incorporate the cameo motif.

Another view of the bar

This Moleskine note book is just full of drawings at the Cobourg bar over a few nights, low on notes high on booze infused drawings. I don't think this was the night this guy spilt an ENTIRE glass of red wine on my sketchbook and then him and his lady were giving me shit because I was not gracious enough to laugh it off. I pretty much expect that in bars.

At the Cobourg bar on Parliament Street.

These songs go on forever.

The band warms up

These two guys don't look like they are into jazz either

Pre Show jitters

Nicola looks nervous here, I think she was just getting ready.

Sunday Night Jazz, February 1st, 2009.

For the record, I think I hate Jazz. BUt you want a drink that is 5 doors north of the studio on a Sunday night-Its always Jazz on Sundays at the Cobourg. C'est la vie I suppose.

Person on the far left, that is Nicola playing the saxophone. The toque lady must be Natalka.
