Satta Massa Gana !

We spent a great evening at Colchester Arts Centre watching The Abyssinians a couple of weeks ago, and I managed to get some sketching action too. I showed my drawings to the guys from the backing band packing up after the gig, and got ushered backstage to meet The Abyssinians. They liked their portraits, and were thoroughly charming and hospitable, even though Bernard said I'd made him too fat ! It was a real privilege to see them live, and to get to talk with them afterwards, and to get a three-way crit of my drawings too !  These are all done with a 0.2 mm Unipin in an A6 Pink Pig ring-bound sketchbook, then watercoloured afterwards.
