Watching the crowd watching the Giants

My sketchcrawl group met at Brennan's in Berkeley last night (Oct. 22). Brennan's is a sports bar. Cathy, another sketcher, suggested this venue especially since the SF Giants were playing in the World Series. There was a big crowd watching several of the TV's. At the beginning folks were shouting and their approval as they watched their Beloved Team. Soon the frenzy subsided. Damn those KC Royals!

Eat Real Festival

Today I had a number of sketching opportunities to choose from so my stomach took the lead - the Eat Real Festival @Jack London Square. Food trucks galore - everything from jam to jambalaya and more. I had a tasty crab cake slider which was delish then did some sketching and as I was leaving I had to join the line leading to the gelato. I went home with a happy tummy.

New, new,new

Lately I've been trying new thing like new clothes and a hair makeover, which involved having my hair cut real, real short. Now I'm experimenting with my drawing style - if that's what you want to call it. Went to a farmer's market in north Berkeley with the sketch group last night Sept. 4.

Trying something different

At last night's Sketch Night I thought I'd try something different. Instead of being so detail-oriented I am shooting for a looser style which should speed up my sketching.

Emeryville in August

My sketch group traveled to Emeryville last night. I know that my buildings come out wonky but I thought maybe this time... I can live with wonky.
