This month it really started to get hot and so my usual practice of keeping my sketchbook in my jacket was impeded. Without the book in my upper pocket it’s a lot more challenging to handle “quick draw” situations.
This month I joined a local meet-up group that sketches around the city http://www.meetup.com/Sketching-around-the-city/ . It has been fun hanging out with all of the members and they have helped me realize that there is a lot to draw around the city! In the gallery the first sketch you’ll see is a of the statue of Edward the 7th in Queen’s park I did with them.
Rod from the group also suggested that I check out a site because the artist frequently does sketches of people on public transit: http://sketchoftheday.blogspot.ca/
As well as joining this group, I joined a word press meet up group http://meetup.wptoronto.com/ and am happy with all I have learned there and the people I’ve met.
The last sketch in the subway drawings this month revolves around the funny situation of me drawing someone drawing others. I think she was drawing the person sitting next to me and then when she realized that I was drawing her it was a really weird. It was a bit like in back to the future where Marty McFly couldn’t get too close to himself or he’d risk the space time continuum exploding or something. It was weird. Before I could talk I realized it was my stop and I had to go and she had this shocked expression on her face sort of, an expression of understanding and also a curiosity as to how to proceeded socially.
