"Congo Rhythms at the Farmers' Market"

I love African and Latino rhythms and this guy was doing it up good at the Richland Farmers' Market this morning.  He was with "Tom..?", the same guy Nancy, Dave and I sketched out at Terra Blanca Winery a couple of years ago.

They were a powerful duo.  Great recognizable, and not recognizable songs, all flavored by these congo drums this guy was massaging.

I had to try to capture him, so here are a series of sketches all on the same page with a couple of thumbnails and Tom, in the green shirt.

Great fun.

"Cruisin' on the Columbia"

This sternwheeling cruise ship comes into the dock at Howard Amon park in Richland, WA., frequently. I happened to be driving to Richland today and noticed it on the river, so I hot-wheeled it down to the benches just off the dock and sketched it coming in.  The park was quiet today, hardly anyone there, but fortunately this lady jumped in the frame to get a few pics, so now she's in my sketch.
