I watched a lot of cartoons and movies. I draw incessantly and carry a sketchbook everywhere. I work in animation and self-publish my books. There are monsters in the streets, don't wear red. Mad bulls and monsters hate that color. I still watch cartoons.

Watercolor Sketch weekend

The image above can be viewed much larger by clicking here.

A Sketchcrawl in the new year. Saturdays are for drawing. You look forward to it (feel the fates are keeping you from it) until the day of and then you're thinking Saturdays are for sleeping in. After you push yourself out the door it's all momentum. I had a great time. Enrico and I had a relaxing afternoon with about 60 other people in the city. Jamie Baker and Matt Jones joined us for coffee at Japantown's New People building.

I was lazy and didn't start drawing until way past lunch. This was a lady who was seated two tables away and did not deserve to be bothered by my gaze. I hope I didn't ruin her afternoon--much. There's no way to ignore the fact that I was drawing her and she endured my attention with grace. She was a lovely subject.

I love the grain of watercolor washes seen up close. To view her larger click on the link below the image. Oh, heck do this right here.

Love that you had to be a creeper, don't worry I do the same thing down in the lobby of my dorm room. Only I use regular pencils instead of watercolors

Frankly, I'd rather be this Creeper.

I like your sketch. It is so embarasing sometimes when we know that the persons knows you are drawing them. Or at lease when we think. I struggle a lot with that myself, it makes me appreciate your sketch more! Great work!

Great! I can't really use watercolors when I covertly sketch people on the Long Island Railroad...perhaps it's something to try.
