Hand-drawn Documentation of Live Music in Portland
Here is a selection of sketches I’ve drawn of local performers. It’s an attempt to both document Portland’s vibrant music scene and capture the energy of live performance. You can find a complete collection of these live sketches and links to streaming and purchase-able music here.
You can now also find my sketches along with live show reviews on the local music blog Portland Notes.
Note to bands: feel free to use drawings on your websites and social media. I just ask that you cite me (Alison Dennis) and, preferably, provide a link a link to my site.
