Absinthe Jazz Trio at Lil Indies.

The Absinthe Jazz Trio performed at Lil Indies 1036 N. Mills Ave. Orlando Fl. This sketch was more challenging that most since I discovered that my pen didn't have waterproof ink in it. This made it so that black ink would bleed out anytime i put a watercolor wash down. I started to adjust to the new look and started to enjoy the more painterly approach as I let the pigments flow down to the jazz beat. The group tends to perform on the first Monday of every month. I recognized one of the guitarists from a performance I had sketched at Rollins College.

I could have lingered and had a drink, but decided to wrap up the sketch when the band finished their first set. Drawing to great jazz is endlessly fun and results in spontaneous and often unexpected results.

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
