Open Mic Sketch

So earlier this week I went to the cool local restaurant/venue Uncommon Ground to hear my good friend and fellow Funemployee Mike Lippert ( creator, writer, director, editor, also plays "Jay") do some signin' and guitarin'.  It was a great time and I did a few sketches while I listened to the jams.  The older man with the bowler is actually inspired by one of the musicians, the lower right drawing of me was done by Mike's wife Kate ("Amy" in the show, also a writer and creator).  The others are out of my head.

In art news I am valiantly working on Super Hero Showdown 2 and a secret project that I am really excited about :)
