Public display of aggression

Last Saturday was international pillow fight day!
http://www.pillowfightlosangeles.com/
The plan was to sketch these folks in action, but on the way there, I was delayed by an enormous waterslide.
Fortunately, there was still plenty happening when I arrived.



Everybody had a great time and I'm happy to report that there weren't any casualties.


...well, except for the pillows.


After the feathery riot was over, our group walked to a smoothie place at the base of Angel's Flight. Here's the view from a comfortable shaded chair.


So about the slide. It was a commercial shoot for Dodge that involved well-dressed actors and an inflatable gorilla. I can't believe I'm saying it but I really want to see this commercial now.
Stumbling upon the waterslide was pretty surreal and I was really split with indecision.
'Do I stay and watch people slide down 4th street or do I travel on and watch an enormous pillow fight?'
Fortunately, I was able to choose both!




I wasn't kidding about the gorilla. This is the luckiest guy in the world.


And I noticed that people are really cool when you tell them you're Peter Parker from the Daily Bugle.


What am I going to do next weekend to top THIS?

Dude, I'm so bummed that I missed the big pillow fight AND the giant slide! Sheri told me about it but I didn't get the message until after it was over. It looked like so much fun! Though I doubt I would put down a pillow long enough to do some actual drawing.

Hope you're doing well. Keep up the posts!

Wow Greg, The guy in the above posts sure is a good friend of yours and has lots of great ways for you to get rich quick! What a great guy! I doubt very highly that he is an internet scammer, but just in case he is, you should go to MY get-rich-quick scam webpage instead!

Sheri said...

Yay! Both! I really want to see that commercial too.

I'm sorry I don't have any get-rich-quick scams for you.

Jeez! Where does one hear about all this sort of fun? I'm just disappointed that you didn't jump on the slide yourself!
