Even more drawings. From people out and about last night - Thurs March 15th.
A fresh batch of sketches. Interesting how much the style has shifted from the ubiquitous jeans and hoodies of interactive - the convention center last weekend was a sea of similarity. Now there are pops and bursts of color everywhere. Billowy see through tops are really popular as well as long natural hair, mini shorts, skinny jeans, military inspired shoes and the whole native and nostalgic thing. All in all, not so different from 2011’s looks.
Austin has exploded with visitors for SXSW 2012. The festival opens with film and interactive segments and then transitions to the more famous music portion. All these out-of-towners make for some great people watching, and I love to see what everyone is wearing. At first, the weather was dismal and everyone was wearing whatever allowed them to stay a bit dry. Now that the clouds are clearing, the fashion is really blooming. I am looking forward to doing some more sketches as the bands roll in. Some of these are done on the spot in my sketchbook as the people quickly filter past, others are done after the fact.

It turns out that my favorite drawing of the evening is a little sketch of Tom that I did before the party started:
