SketchcrawlMo November 22, 2009

I was lucky enough to participate in the Worldwide Sketchcrawl (like a pubcrawl, but with more more hand/eye coordination) this Saturday. The NYC group met in front of the Chelsea Wine Vault at the Chelsea Market at 11 a.m. and, minus a break for lunch at 3 p.m., the last of us drew until 6:30 p.m. We spent the early afternoon on the High Line, then did post-lunch sketching at Chelsea Market (there was string quartet playing and great people watching), and ended the day with a walk to Times Square—stopping on the way to sketch a taco truck on 29th Street.

You can see other New Yorkers’ sketches and photos over at the Sketchcrawl boards. My drawings and links to fellow Sketchcrawlers’ blogs are after the jump…

This represents both what I did and how I felt today. The constant rain provided no comfort. Looking for something to cheer me up I came across Mark Bittman’s video for Sweet Potatoes with Prosciutto.

Sorry I haven’t been around—what a bad hostess! I have been trying to keep up with the drawing, though. Here are a bunch:

Leaf, originally uploaded by cynthiacloskey.

Others have drawn such terrific and varied leaves here, I was inspired to try and draw one too. Plus I liked the pretty colors and how they blend.

been busy as trying to set up an ebay shop, so while I’ve done my drawings I haven’t made time to post them (tsk tsk). They’re all on flickr, but I’ll just post a couple that I don’t hate here.

I’ve caught a cold, probably from those germy tango people, so I made a hot toddy: cognac, honey, lemon juice, hot water, a cinnamon stick, and three cloves.

Because I felt like a wet rag today, I went outside only to get chicken soup and more tissues. Sitting in the cold to draw did not seem like a good idea. This, therefore, is the first day of DrawMo! 2007 that I drew inside my apartment. So I tried to make it up to the world by making the process really, really tedious, using the very thin pens that I don’t have in brown. It’s hard to draw cognac, gold leaf, and wood without a brown pen.

It took me so long to draw this that by the time I was done and could pick up the glass, my drink was cold. I reheated it (in a different glass—can’t microwave gold leaf) in the microwave.
