DRIP Date Night

DRIP Date Night was held around Valentines day at the former grunge bar on International Drive. The black lighting in the venue was a challenge, since I couldn't judge values or color. It was a grand experiment to sketch that night. DRIP has unfortunately closed so the colored beer bar is a thing of the past.

The evening featured interactive stations, gorgeous performers, a full DRIP show with dancers performing in paint, flying water, colored sand, a live rock band, and a Miracle Berry after party, experimental taste testings, dancing, and a 10 foot paint shower.

The Interactive Stations included:
BLUE STATION: A new twist on Paint and Take. You could be your own artist and show off what you got.
RED STATION: Guests were blindfolded and relaxed as they experienced the touch of your partner. Can it get spicy? Maybe....
YELLOW STATION: Word smiths helped guests refine and express their thoughts and affections. We make it easy.
KISSING BOOTH: A photo booth filled with X's and O's was set up for selfies and group shots.
CREATE YOUR OWN VALENTINE: Guests use up cycled materials to craft their own special valentine.
T-SHIRT PULL WALL: Guests could take their chances by picking a crop top to see if they could win the grand prize.
FULL THEATRICAL SHOW:  The show featured a sordid love story with dancers performing in paint, flying water, and sand to a LIVE rock band. It's a standing room experience.
THE COLOR BAR: Guests cold enjoy drinks by the color! DRIP's Color Bar had Red, Blue, Orange and Yellow beer, cocktails, shots, wine and non alcoholic beverages for sale. On Valentine's Day, a special flight of shots was added that would shock taste buds.

DRIP added some real grit and color to the Orlando night life. It was a shame to see it go.

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
