DAY ONE : was on the 31st world-wide marathon sketch day from www.sketchcrawl.com . . . i am always missing out and never finding local participants . . . so i set up a table for the public to participate !! big hit !!! . . . carried it over to day two . . . started a demo . . . final product is okay . . . but it was fun . . . gathered crowds . . . opened up conversations . . . though bo was there to help and he was awesome !! great customer service and able to discuss my work extremely well !!! . . . reception was great . . . sales not much to talk about . . . though a teaching job and a book fair have already come about from it !!
DAY TWO : started off with a happy dance !! the display held !!! especially with the marine layer and the severe gutter tilt !!! . . . then while setting up everyone kept coming by saying you are on the front page of the newspaper . . . bo ran off and found one left . . . actually front page of the second section . . . but way cool !! (when i rode the california aids ride i made the front page of the goleta paper when we stopped there) . . . oh yeah !! except they wrote mosart illustration instead of mosart studios ! . . . maybe i should have had them write a correction (heeheeeheee) . . . but seriously and sincerely THanks! for the coverage North County Times !
so everything went about the same . . . though several people said they came in because of me . . . some to see my work specifically . . . they didn't buy though . . . i don't know how i should take that !! plus the grandson joined us for the last few hours of the day (he did add a few strokes to the demo !!! always helping me with my art !). . . and the tear down of the booth . . .
his playpen took the longest . . . even the security crew tried to help !! poor kid wanted to go home as we struggled with it all ! he did some great paul klee doodles in the sketchbooks !! part of the traveling public sketchbook archive . . .
