Wednesday to Wandering

Posted on Thursday, December 7th, 2006 under Sketches | No comments

So ... inspired by something great I read on the new blog by Ale Garza (inker and artist extraordinare), probably the best thing I did today was head over to Panera Bread and sit and draw the people around me and whatever came to mind ... in hopes of meeting someone new with an interest in my work/art in general. It was lots of fun and I am sure to do it again really really soon. Just the idea of drawing with no real purpose other than to meet a new friend and share a conversation with them is so very appealling and meaningful to me.

This is one of the sketches that came out of that. I am not really sure why or what exactly it means, but it is me and I am okay with that. Probably the most enjoyable part of the evening art-wise were the sketches I did with the softer lead pencils on neighboring peoples face sketches. It allowed alot of expression with minimal need for details.

The rest of today is kinda fuzzy to me ... there were plenty of fun things, but definitely this was the highlight. Later!
