Musicians, Stanley Street, by Elaine (jaguarish)
I just realised some of my sketches from February also fit the musical theme. Brisbane City Council sponsors free games in an outdoor space on Friday nights, and the sketch group went along hoping to sketch some game players. It turned out that there were ping pong tables (action too fast to catch), Connect 4 games with clusters of beanbags (all occupied so we couldn't sit near without looking like stalkers) and some free music. So I started by sketching the musicians. However, their set ended shortly after we arrived, so we moved into a nearby jazz cafe where we enjoyed sketching more musicians. Their showiest instrument was the triple-necked guitar -- I've never seen another before or since.
