Sketches To Vieux

Busy day. I started a new assistant today. He will help me with everything. He will help with files and create order where there is odeur. He cleaned the windows and helped me start a costume for the Krewe de Vieux Parade this weekend. I will march with a head of President Obama, declaring his slogan “Yes We Came”. I ,like all the men in the krewe will be in drag. I will where a ball gown for a woman of 350 lbs. We’re going to stuff it to fit me…Oh well,that’s Mardi Gras. Otherwise I made some sketches and worked on my portrait project. I’m making a slew of quick head sketches from imagination. They will cover the wall of a rock club. I figure I need about 33. Some are small. I’m making them on recycled plastic sign material. Oil on plastic-it’s got a contemporary ring to it. I use one or two colors-so far. I think I’ll do others in several colors. I’ll keep you posted.
