This weekend I participated in the 34th World Wide SketchCrawl. Now, you may be asking yourself, what is a SketchCrawl? Have you ever heard of a "PubCrawl?" Well, a SketchCrawl is kind of like a Pub Crawl except instead of visiting as many drinking establishment as you can, the idea is to engage in a marathon sketching session and sketch as many things as you can inside of your sketchbook. And the World Wide SketchCrawl is a SketchCrawl event in which people from around the world are asked to spend a day sketching and then post their results on the SketchCrawl forum.
So, this Saturday I met a group of local sketchers (and The Boy's mother) at my local independent art supply store to do some SketchCrawling. Initially we thought that we would all meet at the art supply store and maybe draw items at the store and then venture outside drawing items and buildings in the neighborhood, but temperatures ranged from 14 to 35 degrees so most of us opted to stay inside of the store and sketch items in the store or out the window. Here are my drawings:
