 Shaymus Hanlin, and his proud grandmother, at Sun Valley Jazz and Music Festival, 2023. Shaymus, at 22, is a successful singing phenom and his grandmother could not be prouder. 


 Yeah, more... SVJandM.

 More fun from Sun Valley Jazz and Music Festival 2023. One hour sets, chasing gestures and likenesses

. Exhilarating fun


 Sun Valley Jazz and Music Festival 2023. Part One. Our second time at this amazing 4 1/2 day gathering of musical madness, in the best sense. Great venues at Sun Valley Resort. Here are a sampling of the sketches I made while watching musicians and dancers. What delicious fun to capture them in action!

We were at the Sun Valley Jazz Festival  in 2022

up in Sun Valley, Idaho. Here are the drawings done of the musicians, who were wonderful, but constantly in motion, hence the gestural nature of the drawings. Fortunately, musicians tend to take similar stances as they play, so roughing in a gesture allows, sometimes, to return to the parts as they step into the pose. Lots of switching back and forth through the sets between drawings to grab an arm here and a head there, and trying to pay attention to hands and fingers so that chords are more or less proper.


I suppose I should update things at least once a year....

 Airport sketches. SFO off to NYC. The plane, weather delayed, the room, crowded and bored. Great time to draw.
