Between shows at the Fringe Festival, I would stop on the green lawn in Lockhaven Park for a bite and a drink. The outdoor tent this year was alive with incredible acts all the time. Jessica Pauli was asked to take charge of the programing and she brought in a constant stream of talented musicians. I could have spent the entire week out there sketching the performances from some of Orlando's best musicians. Kaleigh Baker came all the way from Portland Oregon to perform.
Sacco and Vanzetti was performing the last of their set when I sat down to do this sketch. Several of the musicians children took an interest in what I was doing and they watched every line and wash go down before they started a game of tag. I believe I sketched this group once before at an outdoor festival on Sand Lake Road. The music was lively and fun, but I was sketching so fast, I was in panic mode the whole time. I also needed to finish before getting to the next show.
The green lawn of fabulousness was a constant party thanks to all the amazing talent that performed on the outdoor stage. I'm betting that beer and alcohol sales must have went through the roof this year at Fringe. I stuck to caffeine for my fix.
