These were all done with pencil, the Pentel Color Brush (http://www.dickblick.com/zz228/90/), a single small tube of brown watercolor paint (I think it was burnt sienna) and a water filled brush (http://www.dickblick.com/zz060/05/). Some pen stuff here and there on a few edges.

Had a blast doing these, and it was great to just have some free-form sketch time that wasn't work related.

Motherfucker pullin out some Sketchcrawls n shit.

Nice. I really want to try one of those waterbrush pens. I carry my portable watercolor set with me in my bag and it sucks to have to find a bottle of water or something for the paints.

You should start participating in the sketchcrawls, Kody. The next one is on March 17.

I have no idea what a sketchcrawl is, but it sounds itchy.

Basically, it's exactly what you did on your cruise. Annual sketchcrawls are held every so often (about every other month) on a certain day. On that day a group of people from their respective cities meet somewhere and go on a walk, sketching various things along the way. Buildings, cars, people. Anything of interest.

You can crawl with a group, or alone. I first learned about it by following Enrico Casarosa's site. He pretty much runs the LA/San Fran crawl. It's a great exercise for the artistic fingers, and free's your mind.



From the blog:
Three or four years ago a good friend of mine had a fun bachelor party consisting of visiting ten bars and pubs along the N-Juda Muni tram line: a “PubCrawl”. And crawling we did, in fact we didn’t make it past the seventh pub. Quite the night, but that is where I got the idea for the name SketchCrawl when a few months later I decided to do a whole day of intense drawing around the city.
The basic idea: to record nonstop everything I could around me with my pencil and watercolors. A drawn journal filled with details ranging from the all the coffee I drank to the different buses I took. After a whole day of drawing and walking around the city the name seemed quite fitting: “SketchCrawl” - a drawing marathon. The crawl was more tiring than I imagined but also more fun and exciting than I had thought. Giving yourself this kind of mandate for a full day changes the way you look around you. It makes you stop and see things just a tad longer, just a bit deeper … needless to say I loved it.
I soon figured out it was much more interesting to do the marathon with a group of artists instead of all by myself! And so SketchCrawl turned communal. After a whole day of drawing it proved to be amazingly interesting and inspiring to share and compare other people’s drawings and thoughts. Different takes on our surroundings, different details, different sensibilities.
The next step was making the SketchCrawl a World Wide event: having people from different corners of the world join in a day of sketching and journaling and then, thanks to the Internet, having everyone share the results on an online forum.
So here it is, we have a website now, a few Crawls behind me, some by myself some with friends and artists from around the world … and hopefully plenty SketchCrawls ahead of us.

Sounds pretty cool. We might have to give it a try. Plans are already underway to start up a sketch group in our area. Hopefully we can get that going soon.

Thanks for checking these out. We've got a live art show coming up in about a week and a half, so I'll be posting shots of those too. Hopefully we won't suck. :D
