Happy New Year

17 comments
I thought I would go ahead and post a sketchbook page from my Sketchclub sketchbook (try saying that three times fast!).

These were drawn during our Friday get together lunch we call Sketchclub. You see, the first part of Sketchclub is dedicated to good food, good friends, and some fun drawing. We have to draw these without being spotted, so sometimes I draw with my sketchbook on my lap and the book nearly concealed under the table. Unless I can find a wall to sit up against so no one can sneak up behind me and say, "Hey, my nose isn't that big!" Fortunately, I draw with a very intense expression on my face, which tends to frighten off most lookie-loos. Only the bravest approach me.

The latter part of Sketchclub is the part when we draw someone from memory. If you want to see some memory sketches, check out the link on the left hand side.

Happy New Year everyone! CHEERS! ...here's to another year of fun blogging.

These look really great! They've got such personality. The lady in the left corner looks like she might've been reading a particularly intense book. And yeah, it's an art to drawing without getting spotted --every time I think I'm going to get away with it the waitresses always give the game away because they're so busy watching over my shoulder...

Here's to a fantastic new year, blogging and otherwise!

Cool. I'll try that "intense expression" technique. Maybe that'll help. :) Looking forward to what you come up with next on your blog this year too.

Marcelo, I'm impressed that you nailed this many wonderful sketches on the same page. I mean, one success out of a couple failures is still a success, but consitency like this is on a much, much higher level.
I'm very impressed, humbled, and inspired.
