The local elementary school was having a car wash fund-raiser. My car was the last one they let in (whew!). All the kids were swarming around it trying to get it done so they could go home. Of course a water fight broke out when they were done, with much screaming and giggling. My car hadn’t been washed since the Big Sur campout nearly two months ago! A well needed cleaning. They worked so fast I hardly had time to sketch them.
My back went out Saturday (ouch!), and is only slowly getting better. Luckily the work deadline was met, but now I’m on my back in bed for the second day in a row. I think I’m driving my wife crazy, not being able to do my usual chores though. This sketch was funny – a drawing within a drawing within a drawing… ha.
This one sits on top of the roll-top desk. You’ll notice the Halloween decorations – getting to be that time of year. I’m working from home today (still in deadline mode), took a 15 minute break for lunch and sketched a Buddha!
Work has been intense this week with a big deadline, so I’ve been doing close to no sketching. I just went across the street to get some take-out lunch and sketched this gentleman while I waited for them to bring me the food. Seems like most of the time I’ll bring the sketchbook and not use it; I’m trying to break that habit and force myself to draw even if I don’t feel like it.
This one is tiny and sitting atop a painting I made for Joan a few Christmases back.
This one is plastic with a magnified digital clock in his belly. He resides with Joan’s collection of CDs.
I’ve read about it, I’ve blogged about it, but a friend sent me this video earlier today and I have to say it’s amazing to actually see Mr. Wiltshire in action. All I can do is shake my head in silent amazement.
