The Half-Tones at the Society of Illustrators
posted: August 17, 2006

Please mark your calendars.You'll not want to miss this one. Great art, great music, great company, hell, my back hairs are on end  just thinking about it. . A number of us are coming down a day early so we can hit  the MoMa at opening  time on Thursday the 7th. All Drawgers invited. Let's do it en masse!
Here's a sketch Leo did of The Halftones when we played at the Illo Conference in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, Leo's use of red wine as a wash has not withstood the test of time....
Here's Steve Brodner's take at the same gig. I wouldn't want to meet that guitarist in a dark alley!...

Sounds fun Hal, I'll mark the date!

Thanks, Hal - I'm sure looking forward to it! The music will be great, as well as the surroundings and the very lively bar.

Randy, Well that and the fact that Quarter-Tones are too foreign to western ears. H.

Dave, in answer to your question why not use one of them drawings on the invite, I had no idea Leo ever did a drawing of the band, and Brodner's sketch's whereabouts were unknown to me. Plus I got other suggestions on the design of the announcement and in the end I went with the most simple quick solution. I know, sounds like plausible deniability. I think this show is gonna be tight, based on the rehearsals, maybe better than ICON3. Leo, your sketch is great!

Also, Leo, I like the way you added the subliminal of me giving the finger on guitar. You are so bad!
