sketchbook 16/09/09


West Queen West, Cork Town and Riverdale were some of the neighbourhoods I walked through to get to Leslieville. It's in the east part of the city which I haven't been to in quite a while. My original intention was to attend a free figure drawing class at a gallery, but apparently the model strained his back, and I didn't get the email notifying me of this. However, it gave me an opportunity to sketch in a new neighbourhood, which definitely has a grittier feel to it than my 'hood. I actually walked by someone being arrested for selling drugs...pretty cool.

How'd I get so behind with your posts?! You are really cranking them out - all high quality too, and publication (which means you are and illustrator!) So, to catch up with the old posts, I especially like the ballet creole and the museum. For this one, I love the two page spread - each relating to the other, and the unique design. Great work!

Thanks, Dan. I don't feel like one just yet, but I'm working on it.
