feeling jazzy

'feeling jazzy' - pve design illustration
In several previous posts, I mentioned my sojourn to the city for an evening of sketching "live models and live jazz." I found myself feeling jazzy inside and out. I quickly sketched the "live jazz duo" doing their thing, providing great music to sketch to. The end of the songs or sketch periods were followed by rounds of jaunty applause and lively chatter.  The jazzy music and the bar helped for liquidity in loosening one's brush and any awkward feeling one might have about painting live nudes.  Hope this little sketch leaves you feeling jazzy. 
    Have a jazzy wednesday.

Up all night with a very sick kitty. Think my jazzy plans for a Weds at the pool are evovling into a less than jazzy visit to the vet followed by a day inside playing nursemaid...XXOO

I saw that jazzy illustration and was transported to Zanzibar Blue - a cool little jazz club underground in Philadelphia. Great times and great memories.

Shhh... I think I can hear the music. One of my favorite music is Jazz, so I'm off to jazz-ercise on the treadmill. xoxo

I like the idea of having a bar and live jazz while sketching nudes. I didn't like how quite my life drawing classes were. very akward if its too quite.

I feel like I can hear the jazz when I look at your illustration! I really enjoy live jazz. I even have a cat named "Jazzy" because she dances across the room, she never just walks and she's always moving, at least a little bit!
