Several times a week, E. G. Gauger hosts a live video broadcast of drawing, sketching, and painting. It is SWEATSHOP by name, and sweatshop by nature.
SWEATSHOP is Gauger's own personal nighttime art college, open mic, and celebrity roast. The session is announced via Twitter, and the call to arms is bounced around by viewers as the night goes on. Sometimes, the camera is pointed at a page, sometimes at a Photoshop window, and very occasionally at a canvas. Guests wander into and out of the chatroom, offering wisecracks, critique, and shaggy dog stories.
If you would like to chat live with the artist and other audience members, the chat room to the right of the broadcast window is open to comment. You should also leave a tip, check the blog, or go to the artist's portfolio.
Nurse your insomnia.
Work harder, for less money.
SWEATSHOP. SWEATSHOP. SWEATSHOP.
