Sketching in the NYC

So I was in New York earlier this month helping sell a "Major Ocean Picture" to the DVD buyers of the world and I decided that since I wasn't going with the family it would be the perfect opportunity to sketch my ass off. I was inspired by my pal Mark Kennedy's blog about sketching Part I and Part II. I always hated toting around a big sketchbook and his posts pointed me toward a small moleskin sketchbook. My first one! Woo hoo!! I got the small, pocket-sized one and put it in my back pocket. I soon found out that you really need to schedule time to sketch. I was only there for four days and most of that was spent running around getting ready for the presentation. I really thought I would fill out that little thing pretty fast but I ended up with it only half done. Here's a few of the better ones.

These drawings are simply beautiful. There is so much personality in them. They definitely have an arteest signature to them.

It is so unfortunate that I must kill you now.
