we went out for an adventure in blueberry picking—but since my attention span is that of a house fly, i opted to go sketching instead while the better half went and picked some more berries. 
i really wanted to capture some more chickens in ink, but they all scooted off at the same time. come to find out, it was dinner time and they all took off to eat in the hen house. so i was stuck with this dilapidated barn. i don’t work well when i am close to my subject so this was a huge challenge. i had to place some marks in pencil so i could keep my ink lines in check. i also took some liberties with the building and omitted some of the extra junk—that’s the beauty between sketching and photography!

i received a VERY nice gift from someone who encourages me to make art all the time. she got me a SWEET Pilot Falcon pen—it’s like nothing i have ever used before! it’s has a super fine point and has flex to it so i can make thick and thin lines. it’s intoxicating! 
this was just a goofing around page where i drew some house plants and tested out the new ride. zooooooooooommmmmm.

this was a bad drawing but a fun exercise—pun intended. i hate to exercise. i only exercise if it is entertaining and/or fun, like basketball or walking a golf course—going on a plain ole walk is just boring, i’d much rather have a destination or a goal in mind. i saw a woman who does a drawing exercise where she draws every hour on the hour no matter where she is in her day, and records it all on one spread. i took that idea on a walk. i went on an hour walk and every 10 minutes i would stop—no matter where i was—and sketch for 2 minutes. then pack up and walk on. sort of a one man-sketchcrawl-workout-drawing-exercise.

these are a few sketches of people from two very different places: a mall, and a casino. at the casino i got beat trip aces vs. trip aces so i left the poker room and decided to sketch instead. the casino at 11pm was a very interesting place to capture people from ALL walks of life. 
i also like capturing people in line at starbucks (even though i loathe that place) and their bored stares off into the distance or their stares into their lifeless cell phones.
