WHO SAYS NOTHING’S FREE?? How about a free drawing of you? Please stop in the Doubletree near Dayton Mall next Wednesday for a free sketch. I will be there drawing from 5:30 pm till whenever… (At least an hour, but may go longer.) We are going to do this every Wednesday, thanks to General Manager Kelly Brown. It’s going to be a LOT of fun…
Here’s the address:
DoubleTree Suites by Hilton, Dayton-Miamisburg, 300 Prestige Place, Miamisburg, OH
In a way this is going all the way back to my start in this little business. Way, way back around 1980 or so I was asked to come and draw the customers in a little bar in Piqua, Ohio, thanks to my ex-wife Janie, who worked there. I had done caricatures for editorial cartoons but NEVER in a live setting. Sure, let’s do it! I took all evening to draw TWO people in pencil, then inked and colored the drawings at home. Later the bar framed and displayed them, the sketches were on the walls for years. After a year of doing that I could go straight to ink, and somewhere in there a feature on me in the Piqua Daily Call landed my first party gig. It’s been a blast ever since. My thanks to Janie!
So, please come see me Wednesday at the Doubletree, right across Route 741 from the Dayton Mall. Thanks!
