Society of Illustrators sketches.


Been doing a lot of traveling lately…one of the spots I hit for about a week was NYC.   Checked out one of the Society of Illustrators sketch sessions while I was there…it was pretty amazing.

If you’re interested, here’s a writeup the New York Times did on the place.  Honestly, I wasn’t that interested in drawing that night, but forced myself to do it anyway.  The sketch above was my warmup sketches from the minute-long poses.  I don’t like most of the sketches I did…for some reason it took me forever to produce something I was happy with (I do like the last one).  Rarely, if ever, will I scribble over a drawing in a little fit of frustration….apparently I was frustrated a good bit, since I did it more than once on these sketches.

Anyways, attended the NYC Dr. Sketchy’s that week as well.  Their new location at the Slipper Room almost seems designed specially for Dr. S.  I REALLY wasn’t in the mood to draw that night either though, so instead I hung in the back and got drunk with the folks helping Molly run it.  They’re having a convention in a few months for folks who run Dr. Sketchy’s, so hopefully I’ll get some drawing done then.  Maybe. 🙂
