At The Devil’s Masquerade Ball

The theme of this masked ball took its inspiration from the scene of Great Ball at Satan’s in the novel by Mikhail Bulgakov, ‘The Master and Margarita’.The brick-vaulted basement of the Lucky Lucky Bar is long and narrow with the stage at one end but there was plenty space for drawing on the curved side wall.
The distortion of the drawing caused by this curved surface when seen from an oblique angle didn’t matter at all – it just added to the spooky atmosphere….
In keeping with the theme of the ball, the dress code for guests was black and white and a lot of people came in costume. As you can see in the photos below, as well as drawing, this was a great opportunity for me to make a devil mask for Dima to wear, and also some devilish makeup and small horns for myself!I did a lot of drawing during the evening, most but not all, in black and white, in keeping with the ‘infernal’ theme of the event. Below are some photos….

Live music at the event was provided by Duchess & The Kittens….
….and there was also a spectacular Fire Show by members of Tribo Fuego!I joined the audience to see the Fire Show but then went back to my Tagtool to do some more drawings. I decided to use colour just for a change…
….and then I did more drawings in monochrome.

And, no, it wasn’t snowing when we set off for home at 4 am!
