15 May, 2016. I enjoy sketching people and places. Bike rides tend to bring out a lot of different people on different kinds of bikes, which is a good opportunity to draw different body types. Today was the annual Tour de Bier which begins and ends at a terrific blues bar called Knuckleheads. Riders arrive a few at a time for a mass start. One and two at a time they line up, and before long there are hundreds of us.
One of the reasons I look forward to each year’s Tour de Bier (well, aside from the beer) is the great blues bands that are up on stage at Knuckleheads at the end of the ride. (Kuretake No. 40 brush pen, approximately 5 x 7 inches, Kansas City, MO)
