You Am I

I went and saw one of my all-time favourite bands in the whole wide world last night. And it was awesome freakin fun. They’re an Aussie band and have been around for a  few decades now, and every time I have seen them they put on the best damn rock n roll show ever. Seeing You Am I are like re-visiting your favourite restaurant that you haven’t been to in awhile. It’ s not a frilly froo froo fancy restaurant, they probably only wipe down the table once, but the food is good, and when you go back and order your favourite dish, like, say, a masaman curry, it’s exactly like how you remembered it and wonder why you dont go more often.

I started off standing midway on the ground floor. The Enmore has since removed all its permanent seats which is great, coz there’s nothing like seating that kills a rock concert.

I felt like I wasn’t getting it right, so at half-time I went to the front.

But I’m not sure if the portraits were any more successful.

I think I was trying too hard…? Anyway, I put my sketchbook in my bag, then after a bit of jumping around I gave it another shot. I stopped using my pen, which although I love, for action gestural drawing it is to stiff, and just worked with my brush pen and mini palette. How I did NOT get paint on the guy’s white shirt in front of me I’ll never know.

So although I didn’t capture individual personality as much as I wanted, I think the feel of the show is there in the end. Apologies to the band for the lack of facial accuracy.
