Small Town Missouri fair

I took this video on the Sunday morning at the fair. The town square was basically turned into a church variety show, with real cheesy Jesus music and reverends talking about the churches and sin. This was a play about Jesus versus suicide. Quite frankly it scared the crap out of me.

I worked this fair with Anthony and Zach, two old friends from the first theme park I drew at Six flags St.Louis.

This year I've begun to take on the challenge of new mediums in the chair. For 10 years I've drawn live caricatures almost exclusively in graphite and airbrush, so I thought it was time to lean a more portable method, marker and color stix. It's gotten me out of my comfort zone and makes me think more about execution . I've got a long way to go before I'm happy with my abilities with this medium, but i thought I'd share a few from this particular weekend anyway. I know there's a lot of dude's out there that really know how to use this stuff, please give me some tips and comment's. These drawings both took about 10 to 15 minutes

St. Louis Larpers

My friend and I stumbled across these people by accident on a Sunday afternoon in Carondolet park.
Grown-ass men playing pretend dungeons and dragons......for real.
