sketchbook 23/08/09

Today, Baldwin Street closed down two blocks for a street festival. It was a quiet, neighbourhood affair with the shops lining this block selling their wares to the Sunday crowd. They also had this chess set up with a large scale board and three tables set up for individual play. This I thought was perfect for me to sketch: Contemplative, statuesque chess players! Ideal.

Also, I'd like to make a shout out to Sharon, a budding artist in her own right, who stopped by to have a talk with me about her art, my art and life in general. Thanks for the talk, Sharon!

Hey Will,

If you don't figure out how to make a living doing this, I will be very disappointed. THIS IS IT!!! I'm getting into the habit of checking your blog regularly now.

I got behind looking at your post, but now I've caught up and am so impressed at all of the wonderful - and I mean, wonderful - pictures that you have been cranking out. Amazing. You have a great eye for composition, and your execution is phenomenal. Well, I am very complimented that you visit my blog & like my efforts (but I am watching you and will catch up!) :) Oh, and by the way, I have added your link to my blog.
