On Monday nights at Blank Space, the Michael Hawley Jazz Trio would play straight ahead Jazz standards on stand up bass, electric guitar and drums. Blank space had over 150 craft beers and great local art. Best of all, there was no Cover. I arrived after working at Full Sail around 9:30PM. The band hadn't arrived yet, so I ordered a tangerine beer, sat back and started sketching the room. When the drum set rolled in I sketch that and finally I added the performers when they started playing.
I had recently been spoiled by an amazing jazz performance by The Professors, but with a beer under my belt and my lines dancing on the page, I was a happy camper. I couldn't decipher any specific theme to the art on the walls, but there did seem to be plenty of curvaceous women with bright red lips.
