This fall I’ve been drawing on the walls of Night Drop — a new bar that will be opening in the Walnut Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati. Housed in an old bank building, there will be a restaurant named Branch on the top floor. It’s a venture of the restaurant group who owns the Little Field and Second Place in Northside. I first met with Matt Distel to learn about the project and D.J. Trischler to see the branding he was developing. I kicked around Walnut Hills for several weeks drawing and observing and drawing some more and talking to as many people as I could in order to hear their stories.
After deciding on a medium, acrylic paint markers, and experimenting with using a projector I feel I’ve gained momentum this week. I look forward to the next few sessions drawing in this space and enjoying a drink at the bar when it is completed!
