Burner’s and BBQ is an annual gathering of (traditionally) aerosol and graffiti artists in Asheville NC. I was one of over a dozen “traditional” brush artists asked to contribute to the 2016 undertaking, three blocks of empty wall in the River Arts District in just three days time. I chose to paint Brooks Robinson, Hall Of Fame third baseman for the Baltimore Orioles.
The first day brought rain, and with the limited schedule, I was forced to draw quickly and design on the fly. This is a progress sketch I used to solve the exceeding buff from the outer contour of the figure.
