What Crawleth Out at NightPosted: December 5, 2015
Yesterday’s sketch crawl during First Friday in the Chinatown district of downtown Honolulu witnessed a celebration of the arts and everything quirky. As we sketched into the evening, we were entertained by glass art at The ARTS at Marks Garage (including live glass blowing and shaping on the street corner), a performance by The Gay Men’s Chorus, people dressed up in Christmas costumes, a group having dinner with an alien puppet, drummers, and event-goers passing by. There was even a sighting of Santa! Not that we were fast enough to capture much of it in our sketches …
John and the team from Marks kindly provided a space for our show-and-tell session at the end of the evening. With a long table, great lighting, and plenty of seating, the venue did not lack for anything and caused quite a number of gallery visitors to stop by and flip through our sketchbooks. One admirer was even treated to an autographed sketch by Ruth Ann.
