More Sketching
December 7, 2005

Here are a few sketches I've done over the last year. The first is the earliest and was done while looking at one of the photographs I had taken of Caelum Moor park. It has some distinct issues, particularly with the sculpture standing up about like the leaning tower of pisa, but it's the first landscape I've done since I was a kid and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out overall. (Click the sketch to see a larger version)

This next sketch is one that I found at a wonderful blog (now in my sidebar) RohDESIGN. Mike Rohde is, in my opinion a wonderful artist. As I was noodling around on the internet one night, I discovered one of his "sketchtoons" and immediately knew this was the type of drawing that I like best and should be practicing myself. Here's Mike's sketchtoon of his cafe-bag:

And then, here's the sketch I completed today at lunch. Again, click on the graphic for a larger rendition of it.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I have had sketching them!

Wow! I'm very honored by your comments and your recreation of my cafe bag sketchtoon. Keep on drawing and enjoying the experience -- I've found it's the only way to keep enjoying yourself while improving your technique -- and yes, you can always improve your technique! :-)
