Gonzo Drawing

In this workshop we will explore the practice of "Gonzo Drawing", real-time drawing and painting in active environments. We will start with a quick discussion of the topic—techniques, inspirations (Ralph Steadman, my fav!), approaches—and how it can influence what we create stylistically and conceptually. Then we will dive into the good stuff—the field work—capturing what we see while exploring Camp Waldemar and all that is happening during Design Ranch. We will revel in the Gonzo process and then regroup to share and discuss what we have captured and ideas around extending it as a larger project or ongoing body of work.
