I guess it's "fall" so i am going to wrap up these Summer Sketchbook posts. I went into summer wondering what summer really is when it's always hot where you live and no one in the house goes to school. But I forgot! I forgot that there's a moment in September when the light changes, the sun is lower in the sky and it starts getting dark earlier. I forgot that the heat breaks and there's a hint in the air that we're not actually hurtling into the sun. So here's the rest of my summer!
These bright, sunny, summery sketches are all from my birthday - I got lots of plants and flowers!
Waiting for food
This is from the taco truck at Summer Ave and Perkins - it's super good! I was just making a list of their meats while waiting, and decided to make a sketch out of it.
More protests. This one was at Poplar and Highland - first time I've ever joined a protest there. I felt like we got more supportive honks than middle fingers.
I ended my Summer Sketchbook with a trip to New Jersey and New York. I had to go to New Jersey for work, so of course I snuck off to Manhattan for some good art time.
I didn't do much sketching there, but I enjoyed it immensely. I usually run through The Met and just see a few things, but this time I wandered around for hours. It was just what I needed.
Sketchwork is sketches and work about sketching - teaching, making art, art supplies, books, sketchers, artists, Urban Sketchers, Memphis Urban Sketchers, and traveling.
