Chai, Liquid Cheeks and Abel Gray at the Hare and Hounds, Birmingham, 13th May 2019
There was lots of energy and dance moves from Chai to try and capture in a single drawing! Liquid Cheeks also had a guest song from Abel Gray in the top right corner.
I’ll be at London MCM Comic Con next weekend! I have music themed comics and zines including some compilations of gig sketches! Hopefully see you there :)
Lots of dancing guitarists at last nights gig! I tried my best to capture their movements. The Orielles and Lylo are on a UK tour together this month but I think a few of the dates are sold out.
First gig sketches of the year! I’ve got a couple of gigs scheduled in February->May so watch this space for more drawings.
I was running late and missed sketching Soeur at this gig. They’re great live and you can find sketches from last year here.
The sketch of Yr Poetry is incomplete because I saw them preform in the same room around a month ago and I like that sketch. You can find it here. The microphone shaped like a phone with a jack lead coming out the side is very cool but only used for a few songs and I couldn’t draw fast enough!
For advent I’m going to be posting gig sketches daily over Christmas and New year with links to all the bands. You can follow along starting here.
I’m taking comics and music zines to Birmingham MCM Comic Con this weekend. I’m super excited for all the extra Nintendo stuff at this show! I’ll be offering ink portraits and handing out the usual free mini comics! You can find table CV22 in the Comic Village section of the show.
Thanks again to everyone who bought zines from my table at Future Days this weekend! Sorry if I missed you when I was sketching bands! I have an online shop with a bigger range of comics here. My next comic con is also in Birmingham! - I’ll be at the NEC for MCM Comic Con on 24th-25th November 2018.
Special thanks to This is TMRW
Thank you to everyone who stopped by my zine stall at Future Days last night! Sorry I wasn’t there all evening I was sketching bands. Saturday’s show was cancelled, but I’ll be back selling zines Sunday night at the Parquet Courts gig. (Please note: I have to catch an earlier train on the weekends so I’ll be packing away around 10.40pm)
It was cool to get the opportunity to draw a harp, I end up drawing so many guitars! (sorry it was such a quick sketch because of the stall) Meg Baird & Mary Lattimore released a new record yesterday! More info here.
Great line up at the Hare & Hounds on Wednesday night! Yr Poetry had a telephone microphone which I wasn’t quick enough to draw, and Kermes were much more energetic and I regret not trying to capture their front woman with multiple faster guesture drawings. Hopefully I can see them another time!
Sketches from a gig on Saturday night hosted by Not Normal Not OK - a new campaign against sexual harassment in the live music scene. Their website has more information including links to support and advice
Giant & The Georges, Exhailers and Ghum at The Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham, 11th September 2018
Unfortunately because of a prebooked train ticket I missed most of Future Fires set and didn’t get a chance to draw them - here’s a link to a sketch of them in February.
Exhailers were wearing stickers on their foreheads this time! They’re for Not Normal, Not OK - a campaign in the West Midlands addressing sexual harassment in the live music scene. For more information visit www.notnormalnotok.com
Ghum are on a UK tour this week! You can see them in Glasgow, Sheffield, Bristol, Cardiff & London.
