IL – Wheaton – Blick/Dave Dorman 11/2/13

Post by Arcturus1020 »

The theme for the day was patience and waiting, which is what these wonderful troopers did for close to 3 hours; when Dave finally arrived at 2:15 all but Eric suited down. This was supposed to be from Noon until 2PM, but due to some confusion on the Dorman's part (they thought it was from 2-4 (even though they even posted the correct time on his Facebook page)), they arrived late but Dave got started right away on the painting demo once having settled in. I didn't snap any photos of the finished piece as I left about an hour into the demo, but he was working on a zombie stormtrooper. I know Kim took some awesome photos of it, so perhaps she'll share. :wink:

Lots of photos were taken throughout the waiting period and crowds were drawn in by the gleaming of white armor standing outside the store. The store manager, Kevin was extremely appreciative of the MWG being there and keeping the crowd entertained . . . and yes, Steve, they did hear all your impersonations and did laugh at the Elmo voice. Thanks for coming out and supporting Dave!

I left my camera at my friends last night so I will post them tonight, it was awesome!


I believe someone in the crowd asked if we would be allowed to buy prints of this and Dave said he would make them available!

I don't know how that's possible at this point as he gave the painting to Kevin Sandstrom, the Blick store manager. . . .
