Welcome back ladies and germs, how was the long Labor Day layoff?
I'll say that an underappreciated part of the majestic 3-day weekend is the 4-day work week. Because watching paint dry for three days in a row is great, but the real joy is finding some extra pep in your step the following Friday. You get used to five days with your brain is locked in and ready to go another round, and then all of a sudden, "BAM!" the cubicle melts away and you're like an inmate getting out for good behavior. You start making all these plans you're normally too tired for.
Really cool news in this neck of the woods, the latest #drinkanddrawokc feature is out courtesy of our dear friend Nathan Poppe with Look At OKC. You need to pick up a copy at your favorite coffee shop. Poppe's put together a great interview detailing the works of the terrific Nate Schroeder. Nate is a Drink & Draw regular, blending ink and markers to make character-driven images equal parts insightful and goofy. He's also been known to sling a pizza or two, so if you play your cards right, you might pick up art tips AND a slice!
Follow Nate here: @schroeder_the_animator, and pick up a copy of Look At OKC to stay up to date on the latest arts, music, and entertainment news pumping through city.
Finally, per usual, consider this your invitation to reconnect with your inner doodler. Come to Drink & Draw this Thursday from 7-10 PM! As always, it's completely free, and you're welcome to BYOB. I'll update the events calendar this afternoon so you can keep up with our ever-changing schedule and pencil us into your very busy life.
Enjoy the Tuesday hustle!
