Memphis is an easy drive to New Orleans, so in the last few years I’ve been there several times. This was my second trip during Mardi Gras, and I tell you what – that is the time and place for sketching! There is so much activity – marching bands, floats, crazy hats, people dressed up as dolls – all with a backdrop of historic architecture and coastal trees.
Here’s how I spent the weekend:
Watching parades. As the night went on, my sketches made less and less sense.
Click on the images to make them a little bigger so you can see the captions.
Pink Chewbacca was the ultimate sketch find!
And appropriately, the documentation of the weekend ends with these drinks.
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
