Playboy Jazz Festival

Yesterday was Father's Day and as a gift my family and I took my Dad out to the Playboy Jazz Festival! It was a perfect sunny day with a slight ocean breeze that would come in just when it was getting too hot. Jazz is a very interesting type of music. I never really listen to it till maybe just in the few past months. I don't even think I really actually listen to it, more I just enjoy hearing it. To me it has this soothing, nostalgic presence to it, which most likely comes from hearing it while driving in the car with my Dad when I was younger. Or hearing jazz being played in the background of my grandparents house when my family would come visit. And now I guess I can also include spending a whole Sunday with my family watching master musicians celebrating their love of music.

My Very First Post!

I never thought I would be doing this, but here it is, my blog! (I don't even know who I'm talking to right now.)
The Duze, Sturges, and I decided we would have some fun and keep our artistic minds active this summer by going out every week to sketch and also to assign each other a character design assignment. Well we weren't sure what we should assign ourselves so we went ahead and mimicked the much acclaimed "Chades Challenge", choosing a noun plus verb or adjective. So here are my "Pompous Old Men".
