Knockabouts, Whitey’s & Kai

July 20, 2014

Here are a few quick sketches from recent adventures. And by adventures I mean situations in which I was sitting down and other people were doing stuff.

This first one is of a fun celtic band that we happened upon at a bar in Flagstaff. Most of their songs were of the encouraging-the-crowd-to-drink variety, so naturally the whole room was pretty rowdy by the end of the night.

One guy – dressed in a cowboy hat, cowboy boots, and spandex shirt – got up and moved his body around in a way that I believe was meant to imitate an Irish jig, but ended up being more of a performance art piece reminding us all of why drunk middle-aged white men should get up at dance at every opportunity.

Then after the band ended their set he took the microphone and said, “Everyone has gifts and talents, and I created the Arizona baseball version of American Idol, but these guys are even better than me!



And here we have a dude in the lobby of Whitey’s Auto Repair. Arizonians rarely pass up an opportunity to wear ugly sandals, and I rarely pass up an opportunity to document it.



And this here is Kai, the adorable son of my good friends Sharon and Jerome. Children and babies remain one of my biggest challenges. Kai is much cuter and sweeter than represented here.
