This is Leah dancing the tango at El Valenciana in 2005.
I met Leah through my oldest friend, Victoria. Going to draw her dancing was one of my early conscious moments of “documentary drawing” of Bay Area culture.
The law office of Eugene Wong, 2002.
My second ex-husband was a foreign national, and Eugene managed the green card process. I believe our friend Shinsaku referred us to Eugene, who did a good job at a good price. I made this drawing on the back of some form while we were waiting one day.
Noise Party, Berkeley, 2004.
Logan and JD, close friends of my second ex-husband and I in the Oughts, gave marvelous parties, including ones called “Noise Parties”. Like a kind of John Cage experimental sound thing! For one of the early ones my ex and I wrapped ourselves in bubble wrap and rolled up the garden path, popping and crackling!
These drawings had been scanned but not posted, and were languishing in a backup file inside many folders.
I am so grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me to take time to document my art archives.
These are great!
thank you! I feel like I got a good likeness of Leah even though there’s not much detail 🙂
