Derek Thompson's plethora o' monsters. No slow button on this guy. I personally want one but will have to wait for the next round.
"Dude, I thought I had that one locked!" I heard this a lot at the end of last year. I was saying it myself. Arrgh! This event is a lot of fun and I'm really sorry I'm going to miss it this year. I donated a little sketch to the venture and hope that a lot of youse guys can make it. Brings out the competitive bear inside these timid artists and art lovers who normally would gently pace through a gallery just whispering, careful not to intrude on other's experiential space. Not here. All's fair in art acquisition. All auction strategies are welcome--you know, running down the clock to put in your winning bid, outright intimidation, shouting matches...Like I said, fun. Mingling and talking about artwork all in the service of a good cause makes for a well-rounded evening, I say. So, gear up and bring yer checkbook.
Pencil and watercolor. A line from a Steely Dan song written at the bottom of the artwork (not shown). What? did you say contest? Name the song a Paper Biscuit character is named after.
