Sketchbook Jam - Mike Rudolph

Sketchbook Jam at Studio 2nd Street, in Encinitas, is a once a month local treat.

Talented folk from all around flock to Ron and Vanessa's studio, listen to some great music, and draw in their sketchbooks.

This month, singer songwriter Mike Rudolph charmed the room, while local artists enjoyed the Friday night drawing, painting, talking and eating BBQ chicken pizza.

I brought a Lami Safari fountain pen and a little 5.5 x 8 inch Canson basic sketchbook, drew a few things and had a wonderful time.

Mike Rudolph plays original compositions.

But he left his amp at home, so his girlfriend rallied.
(Amp pictured next to girlfriend.)

Mike composes smart classical arrangements too.

This is his serious face.

The kid can really play.
