Big Apple Barbecue Block Party

It's been a busy time these past couple of weeks - lots of sketching and not much time to post anywhere except instagram. I got to work at the 13th Annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party, an annual fundraiser for the Madison Square Park Conservancy.  Since my son-in-law was an official pit master and my daughter, his events coordination manager, I was fully immersed in smoke and ribs.

Starting on Friday night with the "Brisket Sessions" a panel discussion by six pit masters representing some of the best BBQ joints in the country and continuing (non-stop for the pit crew) through Sunday afternoon. Here's a few highlight sketches.
