Gig shots by Elgin Subwaysurfer Bolling

Been a while since Ive posted some gig shots. Here's two. One is a pencil drawing I did at Sardi's two weeks ago. Every since watching Ed Steckley draw caricatues in Pencil at an M&M store Gig we did together, and also at Chelsea Piers for the NY Rangers, Ive always wanted to do a gig entirely in pencil but lacked the courage. After seeing the results, I can see why he loves the medium so much. Sorry to just show one pic though.... The other pic is one I drew for some guests at the Marriott Hotel last summer. I JUST developed the picture outta my camera.... talk about procrastination..

Thanks! I was really excited about doing this type of quality in pencil and LIVE at Sardis! the couple LOVED it! I was concerned that the wife wouldnt like to be depicted in this way, but she had as great a sense of humour as her husband did. The fact that i did this in a little under five minutes was a personal accomplishment as well. The type of pencil i used was the same type that park caricature artists, like Roger Hurtado, one of my heroes, uses, as well as Ed Steckley.
