I enjoy drawing portraits and my teachers in Sketchbook Skool. I drew Miguel from one of his live videos while he talked to us about his art and suggested assignments for us.
And I continue to draw for EDM: Every Day In May. This is "The place where I sit to read" ...
Not far from this thing "hanging from our ceiling" ...
One of Miguel's lessons was to draw one scene but in panels. This is me capturing things in my back yard including my own crossed feet.
Our next teacher Jason Das, is a NYC Urban Sketcher, and I feel that my jaunts to Barnes & Nobles and Tacos Jalisco are very Urban!
The story that goes with this picture is the fact that these people were NOT sitting together, but were gathered from around the room and situated where I wanted them to be; I am sure they all left good friends!
Another Urban scene was done while standing at a parade downtown last week, while listening to Mexican music played on drums and a tuba, as a cowboy circled his lasso, and others sat astride their horses waiting their turn to march.
What's fun about this urban sketch is that it's done in a "Folding Art Journal" made for me by my friend, Carmel Campbell, as these are pages that turn up and out of the normal flow of the other pages in the book, and are therefore drawn upside down from each other. I am sure it will all make sense when I have finished filling this book with my art.
I really enjoyed my physical proximity to the folks outside the window where I was sitting in Starbucks. I don't think they knew I was drawing them, but we were only a couple a feet away with only the window between us.
Jason gave us an assignment to do some collaborative drawing. Carmel, living in Oregon, and I, in California, decided to hook up on line and sent drawings back and forth building this story together in cartoon style.
#1 I started it here with me and my sign ...
#2 and Carmel added to it by adding herself ...
That was great fun, and we've decided to do more of these ...
Here's our next one:
I started it with a drawing I did at Starbucks again showing my day ...
And Carmel added her day to the top!
In the meantime, Have a CREATIVE WEEK!
