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…

stop and smell the iris

Hmm, do irises have a fragrance or are they all show? After a quick search of wikipedia, I did read that the orris root and sometimes the iris flowers are added to Bombay Gin for flavor and color… maybe I should have said ‘stop and brew the iris.’

I’m heading up to Seattle in a couple of days and have been a little stressed about keeping up with NaBloPoMo and DrawMo! I have this cellphone that does all this whiz-bang stuff that I’ve only used for making and receiving calls. Since my daughter left for college, I’ve been learning text messaging. It’s not difficult, I can form sentences and type, but the learning-curve challenge (of seeing the keys and trusting that the text I’m typing will generate the words I want)  has been a tad frustrating.  Today I spent some time to learn how to send text messages with photos to both my Blogger and Flickr accounts.  This picture, taken with the cell phone in normal light,  turned out better than I thought it would.

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’m not very happy with this quick sketch of my husband reading. But I am–thanks to a lot of your examples–enjoying working in pen and ink. I erase so much when I draw in pencil or charcoal I thought ink would be impossible. But if I remember to draw lightly it works. Getting a likeness is tricky, at least for me, even with a face covered in whiskers!
