You will have five hours to draw or paint one of the Founding Fathers as a zombie alongside other local artists as we work on our own pieces, listen to music, eat lunch and generally shoot the shit. It is fun and inspiring to be around so much creativity, enthusiasm and passion.
At 6:30 pm we will open the gallery doors to the public and display your creations. Attendees will be able to award points based on design, drawing skill and likeability. The entries with the most points will receive prizes donated by our sponsors (including a tattoo gift certificate from Artful Dodger Tattoo)

List of Zombie Founding Fathers & Artist Selections
For this Sketch Jam, each artist will pick their subject in advance. Picks are first come, first serve. Please check out some back story on your subject and present a design that expresses your subject truly (as a zombie). Your finished piece should include a zombie-parodied quote.
We will go off of Wikipedia’s definition for Founding Fathers and we’ll also provide a list to get you started. If you don’t see a name on the list, please feel free to message us, if it fits the criteria, we’ll allow it.
