Riley


i think this is the first time she's been sketched in my new book which I've alreadyt finished half of. One day I'll catch her sleeping with her head facing me :)

A first


i think this may be a first for me....drawing a persons face that is. I drew him from the tv last night. Luckily he stayed seated the whole time. I used a grey watercolor pencil so it didnt scan very well. I'd love to be able to draw peoples face but they always seem so intimidating. I think I may etry drawing from magazines and photos to gain some confidence.

Unfinished candy


I did not give myself nearly enough time to sketch the bag of Halloween candy I brought to work. Plus i think my co-workes could smell the candy three cubes down. Two minute after I dumped the bag, they cam running.

From my walk



Found this walking Ri-dog this evening and had to pick it up.

sketches from Boulder Coffee




I sat at the new Boulder Coffee tonight sketching with Rachel. The new construction going on in this area is crazy. I hope it helps revitalize this part of the city. Being so close to the university may help too. It's looking great so far and I guess it's worked a bit. I most likely wouldn't have come down here before the changes. oh, and I tried using wax resist, i've been meaning to give it a whirl but had no candle. Luckily there was one on the table.
