I haven’t been sketching as much as I want lately. Though I’d sketch all the time if it were an option. Continuing to keep my head looking up much like the water tower up above.

Similar Work I Admire
This last weekend I was passed a store displaying some watercolor pieces. I discovered the work of “Barbara Forrest”.
While looking at some of her miniatures I couldn’t help but notice similarities within our work. None the less I admire her landscapes and nature scenes.
The leaves have fallen on Main St. many local’s will recognize The Ink Pusher’s sign a local and fairly known tattoo artist. I really need to work on consistency in scale.

Well Then Just Start
This last sketch is actually somewhat of a funny spread. I started the first while being somewhat called to action and start sketching on the spot.
The subjects left shortly after, but for the most part I didn’t even start with a line drawing on it. The second page however is the fun one. Let me first say it’s not done.
So does anyone recognize the signatures let alone read em?
Yesterday a friend asked me to do a favor for him. Agreeing I showed up thirty minutes early and drew the building to help record the event. I am happy with where it’s at. The sketch was quick, light, and not detailed. This is only 15-30 minutes in.
So as I go with my non-volunteer volunteered girlfriend to help out we find out it’s a music concert. We are always up for free live music. Backstage passes handed over we went to our stations and found out the main event was a mainstream rapper “Lil’ Flip”.
Well the concert was great! Though I much more enjoyed the local bands and indie rap artists who showed up early, and extended their set lists to help maintain the show while we awaited the famous rapper. Not to mention they played more then he did.
I asked the guy to sign small and close to the lower section. Instead he signs half my page. Let me cut this all short. I met the man shook his hand, minded I didn’t get to really have a conversation with him, I wasn’t very pleased.
Maybe he was busy, maybe just uninterested I don’t know. I don’t take it personal, I just don’t understand how I can take time out for anyone who likes my work, but I was somewhat overlooked. Is it just me?
