This sketch is from one of the two holiday school band concerts I attended this month. Since my nephew Calvin has been in 6th grade, I've been to many band concerts. Now he's a freshman and his brother Joshua is in the 6th grade band, and their sister Somerset will be there next year.
Every band concert I've seen makes me feel hopeful for the future of our world. Here's wishing you hope and joy in 2013. Happy New Year!
I'm an artist from Memphis, TN. I work with the written word by day and the rest of the time I can be found painting and drawing in my studio, or sketching wherever I happen to find myself. I have worked in public art and participated in the roller derby, and I’m now a technical writer, teacher at Flicker Street Studio, organizer of Memphis Urban Sketchers, executive board member of Urban Sketchers, avid reader, okay cook, obsessive list-maker and occasional curator.
