I was waiting for for the GO Train at Union station to get to my sister's place on Christmas Day.

Wanda's Pie in the Sky, Kensington Market.

I went to Wanda's Pie in the Sky to pick up a meringue pie for dessert for tomorrow's Christmas dinner with the family. Sat for a bit and sketched. Some call it a cozy space, I call it small. HOwever, it's nice if you like sketching people pretty much face to face. Makes for huge awkward moments.

On a side note, I didn't realized how delicate a meringue is and on my way home with it, some of the meringue oozed out. I had to shovel it back in but I think it's still edible. Merry Christmas.

I had some time to kill before I had to make an appointment. So an americano and an hour later, I had this sketch of the Jet Fuel cafe on Parliament to show for it.

As my time to leave approached I was sketching quicker and quicker and I really like how loose the lines were coming out. I'll try to duplicate that looseness the next time I sketch anywhere.

Batman and "Robyn"

This is one component of my niece's Christmas present. Her dad has asked me in the past to do a drawing on this theme and I thought it'd be the perfect time to draw it up. It's been a while since i used watercolors and every brush stroke was like walking on a tightrope. But I'm done and I'm quite happy with it, considering the timeframe.

I started a new sketchbook today and I broke it in with a sketch of people I drew while riding the subway home.

My first meet up with the group, Sketching Around the City. A group of us went to U of T's Hart House and drew the afternoon away.
I decided to camp out in one of their study halls and caught a group of students and their tutor cover material for a stats course.
The one thought running through my mind was, "thank god i'm no longer a student anymore! "

Big man, small computer.

I had a bit of time before I met a friend for dinner, which means a bit of sketching at the Bloor Gladstone Library.
