Sketching A Theatre Performance

Last spring I attended a performance of a play entitled "As We Go On," which told the stories of several LGBTQ persons.  It was very moving, especially in this current political climate in the United States.

Because this performance was essentially people telling their stories, I decided ahead of time it would be a great change to sketch.

Here are the pages that resulted.  I did these on prepared backgrounds (completed for a course I took on background creation, with no idea what I might eventually put on them).  I did them all in real time, in the theatre, so in very low light conditions.

I wanted to catch impressions of each speaker, as well as the most meaningful quotes.

This proved a great way for me to "take notes" and/or journal about the event.  I certainly remember it clearly!
