We are also working on a hardbound collection of the best from this first year. It should be completed sometime this Summer. We'll keep you posted.

Artie Shaw Orchestra May 3, 2015 Sketchbook from the third row.

We got to see the Artie Shaw Orchestra in Patchouge NY and we all had a blast. I like events like this because I can draw for a solid two hours. I'm going to let these drawings stand as they are. I don't think I'm going to add color. I like the black and white quality and the quickness of the line.

I will leave you with the drawings.

This last drawing is my favorite and it was the last one I got to draw before the band finished.

Billy Joel Concert Sketchbook April 3, 2015 Madison Square Garden

Here it is... drawings done on the spot during the concert from Section 113 row 9. Great show, but then again I can't think of one bad Billy Joel song. The set list is posted somewhere on endless internet fan sites. He sang one of my favorites: Zanzibar. 

I sold Billy several paintings years ago. Last I heard... he still has them. Whenever I bumped into him the Hamptons he was always gracious and kind but when I asked him if I could sit in on a rehearsal for an upcoming concert he politely told me, "No." He said it would have been like having someone sit and watch me draw. LOL. I laughed and said I understood. It's only taken me 20 years to get to a show and do these drawings from a great vantage point. I'll be going back on July 1st and I will add to the video version of this.

Betty, my mother, taught me a lot about music. I certainly can't sing but she instilled in me a love of a well crafted song and that, Billy, she said, was one of the best. He certainly has written a ton of them. This show could have been 6 hours and he wouldn't have scratched the surface of everything he has written.
