#WhereIsRa?: Essence Street Style Block Party

My New York Fashion Week experience continues with Essence’s Street Style Block Party in Dumbo. 

I attended last Sunday and created some live paintings of the jovial crowd. Dumbo is quickly becoming one of my favorite parts of Brooklyn. There was live music, performances, lectures, and vendors. It was an outdoor venue so I had to be mindful when I picked a space to paint because of the large crowd. Also I had to work even faster than The Tailory party because people were shifting very quickly. I donned my tuxedo for the event and my friend, Fox snapped a few good pics as well. All art created in Sketchbook for iPad.
