Brett Dennen Concert Poster and Other News

Six years of drawing live music came in handy for this assignment. I'm always happy when working with Ray Buetens and Staci Sambol of Slub Design, who hired me for this illustration. I haven't seen Brett Dennen live yet: I spent hours listening and making studies from photos and video. I hope to catch him when he tours near here.

And now, that other news. In August, my art will be hanging all over downtown South Deerfield, MA. Come see me in the Greenfield Savings Bank and the Day Lily boutique. All the pictures will be for sale.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops and the Spirit Family Reunion in Northampton, 04.11.14

The Calvin Theater in Northampton, MA is an old movie house converted for live music shows. It's not an intimate performance space at all, therefore a tough place to try to sketch the way I do. I gave it a whirl anyway. The Stage before the show: [caption id="attachment_2141" align="alignleft" width="490"]Drawing by and © Robin Hoffman, 2014 Drawing by and © Robin Hoffman, 2014[/caption] The Spirit Family Reunion: [caption id="attachment_2139" align="alignleft" width="490"]The Spirit Family Reunion, 04.11.14.
