Kevin C's Thoughts On the Experience
Last night I had the good fortune of being able to doodle during a dress rehearsal of the Minnesota Opera's Mary Stuart at the Ordway Center. I was invited by Tempo and the Black Hat Collective, and was part of a group of about fifteen cartoonists who tried to visually capture the opera. Our little group must have looked strange from the stage, fifteen dark-clad cartoonists scribbling madly under a haze of blue booklights, our rapt silence broken only by paper rustling or the occasional pencil dropping on the floor.

Artist: Lupi McGinty

Lupi's Thoughts On the Experience
Thanks for inviting us to draw the performance. I appreciated being able to enjoy the artistry that went into the show--the lighting, sets, and performances were all fantastic. I tried to bring some of the expressive color and body language into my sketch of Mary kneeling.  I look forward to seeing everyone else's work online.


Artist: Ken Avidor

Ken's Thoughts On the Experience
Thanks so much for inviting me to sketch last night. I had a lot of fun. I wish I could do it again. I've mentioned it on the Twin Cities Urban Sketchers blog.
