Thursday T&A

I went to Graffiti Junction (900 E Washington Street, Orlando) for Thursday T&A (Trivia and Arts). I arrived a bit early right after work. T&A happens each Thursday from 7 to 9PM. I decided to sketch the ornate fountain that slows traffic through the Thornton Park District. I wonder how many drunk drivers ran into the fountain before they decided to put all those steal barricades around it. I leaned back against the new Mother Falcon Bar. Tables were being set up outside anticipating the evening crowd. Melissa Felcman who is an amazing supporter of the arts, came out and shot a photo of my sketch in progress. For once I didn't feel like I was in the way. I heard the announcer across the street and when I finished the sketch, I went inside Graffiti Junction for a burger and Trivia.

They were just starting the second round of T&A when I arrived. Here are some of the questions. If you know the answers, you can leave them in the comment section. People were instructed to close laptops and put away cell phones to avoid cheating. The Mission Impossible theme kicked in.
What character smoked a hookah pipe in Alice in Wonderland?
What gives the Red Sea its red tint?
What is the Indian Religious concept called in which a soul returns to a new body?
What is the hormone responsible for male sex characteristics?
Word Jumble! NAIGLCABN
Snoop Dogg changed his name to what?
True of False. Wimbledon games are played on a grass surface.
What is the State capital of Washington?
What makes women more creative? Flowers, loose shoes, or chocolate chip cookies?
What comes after the turn in Texas Hold em Poker?
True or False. The Grey Wolf is also known as the Timber Wolf.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
