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…

bourbon toddy
The second hot toddy I’ve applied to my current rhinovirus. I ordered this one at a bar near my office, where I go because they have really good food. The bartender had never made a hot toddy before, however, and although he was game, this was not a very good one. Especially since even though I thought I shouted "Scotch!" quite loud enough over the Rolling Stones (which is what he plays, 90 percent of the time), in the event, he made my drink with bourbon, which I don’t like. Also, not enough lemon, and not enough honey. Or, to look at it another way, too much water. Your choice.

And, as a dubious bonus drawing for yesterday, there’s this:


I try not to make a habit of this, but I needed some artwork to illustrate a story about that new Bob Dylan movie, and I didn’t want to use a typical stock photo. I’d tried half-assedly to hire an illustrator for it last week, but he was busy. So, with apologies to both Milton Glaser and Aubrey Beardsley (what a combo!), I drew my own. The final version is in the story: The Wandering Kind.

An interrupted day is NOT conducive to drawing, so I doodled or at least went through the motions of what could/might/should’ve been a doodle.

I hope its okay to put this in. Its a painting I’ve been working on that I finished last night after “Dancing with the Stars”. LOL. I am having a one-woman art show next summer and I’m slowly trying to get some work together, because I’m a wreck thinking that I can’t fill up a whole venue with artwork. Although I certainly have filled up a whole apartment with it. I do love to paint though, but I don’t have much space and I have to paint on the counter where I feed the cat.  This is done with acrylic paints.  I might still play with it a tiny bit more. Why do artists have to be so dang angsty?

I didn’t draw yesterday, because I never left the house, so today you get two.

Here, Natalia takes a rest on the sofa from last week.

As soon as I decided to draw this couple, they decided to spend most of the rest of the evening sitting down. So I had to make up quite a bit of it. Probably not the parts you think.

I don’t know the woman’s name, because I’ve never danced with her. The man is named Felix, "as in the cat."
