sketchbook- Bloor Gladstone Library

Some afetr work sketching at the Bloor Gladstone Library. Toronto has been hit with a cold spell for the last few days and there's only so many places along my toute back home that I could sketch in at. The B/G LIbrary is one of them.

sketchbook- at work

It took me two 15min. breaks to get this down on paper. I was sitting on my work table drawing my trolley where I hold all my supplies to frame pictures.

sketchbook- a day of sketching

Early morning ride on the 505 Dundas East street car to the dojo.

 Some post practice sketching at Cafe Uno in the Distillery District.

 I met up with some Toronto Urban Sketchers for some drinks at the Queen and the Duck (or was it platypus?) pub.

… And then for some dinner.

Sketchbook- Dufferin Mall Food Court

I went to the Dufferin Mall after work to do some grocery shopping and a bit of sketching. Death and taxes are the two things that are guaranteed in life. I'd like to add a third. These retired Portuguese men congregated in the food court chewing the fat. They are the new mall rats.

Sketchbook- Bloor Gladstone Library.

Took a sketch break after work today at the Bloor Gladstone Library. I imagined people who study at the library would make good models, but these 4 guys were the most fidgety. Maybe they were uncomfortable from me openly staring at them. I will never know.

Sketchbook-- St. Lawrence Market

Warm up sketches of people around me.

The man in the foreground sat right in front of me while I was sketching the man reading his paper. Serendipity? Anyways, he was a trooper and didn't fidget, look my way or show any thought to me. I'd say he made the perfect model.

I had some time today to sketch at the Jet Fuel Cafe. Here's the other sketch I did of Jet Fuel a few months back.
