On Friday, 13th of Jan, I went to the opening night of Art Underground. This is a once-a-month event in Canberra, which I started going to at the end of last year. A judgement-free open-mic combination of poetry, stories, music and performance art, it is now so popular, it is starting to outgrow its venue: the lovely secondhand bookstore in Curtain called Beyond Q Books.
Anyway, this year I plan to attend each month and sketch the performers and attendees – as much an act of professional practise as contribution to the event. Here are the illos I did on Friday.
