Bruce here! Been busy as usual, last month I worked at UNC Wilmington, then got to surf ride hurricane surf the same afternoon at Wrightsville Beach. The next day I was off to Lee’s McRae College in Banner Elk and got to draw caricatures next to Beech Mountain. I played music for the students that evening , such a great audience! Last weekend I had a booth at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Bluegrass Wide Open event in Raleigh. Saw and drew many old friends while listening to some great bands including Scythian and The Duhks. Had another mountain trip and got to the Blue Ridge Parkway for photos at sunrise but it was too cloudy to see the blue Blood Moon lunar eclipse. Got some great sunrise photos, though! Then I got to Appalachian State University in Boone and played some slide guitar and harmonica for the students. I just added “Ophelia” to the setlist.
Recently I drew a guy proposing to his girlfriend at a restaurant, then after I showed them the caricature, he surprised her by actually proposing. She said yes! That was my tenth time during the proposal caricature, they all said yes. I’m batting 1000! Back on the road next week, hope to see you all somewhere!
