Showed up late

So, I missed Gabe because my lazy ass can't seem to get to the meeting place on time, oh well. Today I only had a short while to sketch so this is what I got...

early start on the new year of SKETCH CLUB!

Well, I just got back from the last sketch day of 2007! I am considering it an early start on the 2008 year. I am posting some sketches from a couple fo weeks ago as well while I was at the group with Dan Burgess.

I got to the Mall around 11:10 this morning and started sketching. I have been feeling a little under the weather from all the traveling and excitement of Christmas vacation and so I left after about an hour of sketching. So I am sorry if I missed anybody who may have shown up after me.

There was an email in my inbox from Lee White this morning concerning the sketch group. Lee is the official facaulty advisor from the Art Institute for the Sketch Group. Along with with his excitement for being a part of the group this term he also had some suggestions.

"One thing, maybe while you are out there, give yourself a few things to concentrate on in addition to people. Maybe try to capture a cool store front or a interesting group of cars parked in a row (not so easy to draw). This will add some new depth to what you guys have been drawing in the past. "

Good stuff.

Can't wait for next week!

Get things rolling.

Hope everybody has had or is having a great Christmas vacation. I am back in town from my vacation and am ready to return to the old sketching routine.

I will be in the Pioneer Square Mall in front of the GAP store at 11 o'clock tomorrow morning.

There was a lot of interest in the sketch group from the Art Institute faculty this past term that I hope will bring about some positive changes within the group, including locations, subject matter, and instructions and critique from some of the AI staff.

Met up with Gabe and we hit the
Pioneer Court house... more or less walked through it
actually and quickly assessed that it was way too cold in the shade and moved to the mall.
Santa was in town which was good for us because lots of people were sitting still and standing in line, people kept getting in the way of santa though so no sketches of the Man from me. I really need to make it down more often, lifes crazy.
Good luck with Finals everyone!
