The Story

Another one of those feelings. I drove from Longmont to the outskirts of NoBo to go to BOCO cider once again. Like always, a band was playing. While drawing, a young blonde girl came up to me. She asked me if she can draw on the tablet. She was a young artist and had never done any digital drawing before. I copied one of my pictures and removed all the color she she can do her thing. One brightly color picture later, she signed the photo with her name: Soli.

Soli was the daughter of the one of the performers, Ryan Benthall. After a few Instagram messages and weeks, I finally found a time I could see him perform again. This gig would be in the mountain town of Nederland, CO at the Knotted Root.

I put on a dress and heels and drove into the front range. As I do, I noticed that my gas tank is running dangerously low. The emergency yellow gas light turned on and I knew that if I don't find a gas station in the next 40 or so miles, I'd be stranded on the side of the road. I breathed in deeply and made sure to use the break sparingly, hoping that there would be a gas station between where I was and where I was headed.

I drove through the mountains listening to the latest Flat Irons sermon, and praise be to God I saw a gas station. I pulled in and half filled the tank as the gas was expensive and I could get cheaper fuel closer to my home of Longmont.

After some Google Maps confusion, I finally arrived. At first I wasn't sure if I was in the right place. No music was playing. I also felt like quite the city slicker being in heels on dirty and gravel. However thanks to years to walking on cobblestones, I'm a expert in walking in 4" inch pumps.

I looked at the menu. I was overdue for drawing a different kind of beer. I got one with an interesting name: Cloudscapes IPA.

An hour later, Soli and her parents arrived. Ryan was surprised to see me, and we agreed to see each other at future events.

About the Artist

The only thing I enjoy more than eating Colorado food culture is drawing it.

I'm M. J. Star. I moved to Colorado in 2019 and have been drawing digitally for almost 2 decades. In early 2022, I started drawing art that depicts Colorado's rich food and drink culture. I've been traveling the state going to various breweries, wineries, cideries, bars, and restaurants. I try their food and drinks, and transform all of that into art that celebrates Colorado's blossoming local food culture.

My shop features all original art work draw on my mobile tablet.
