David and Sanita Kuš! were the line-up of last Thursday's artventurous drink & draw. Gary Baseman was on a personal research tour through Poland and the Ukraine and then came to Latvia as Fulbright specialist, lecturing and doing workshops in the Latvian Art Academy. Nicely he agreed to meet up with us to do a comics jam. To see how much fun we had and what we did we will now show you some pictures!
In the following pics you can see us in action:
Gary Baseman also brought his amazing sketchbook where we got a peek inside:
And here you can see the collective drawings we made:
At a kuš! drink&draw we of course also make comics, and this is how they came out:
