Was in New York City with some friends. Had some time to kill and stumbled upon a parade – decided to hang out and watch it. Have always been an incessant people watcher – decided to take a bunch of shots of various characters in the parade that caught my eye – was inspired to create a series of “Parade” colored pencil drawings. Since the NYC trip, have happened upon a few other parades at the Jersey Shore – have taken shots of characters at these parades as well. This drawing is part of this parade series and features a bar-crawl parade during the July 4th Holiday.
