--The Sketchclub Executives

Her variegated clothing and determined walk are probably what made us pick our mark.

As we walked trying to find someone, we noticed a cop pulling someone over, he was to be our mark. But as we turned the corner. Wham!!! This lady hit us, and thus a new memory sketch was born.

Lovely Blonde Hair ...

Hmm, I've gotta hunch her blonde hair isn't natural. Whaddya think?


Two characters to-day !
(Just don't get used to it...)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone !

We had a hard time finding a mark until we came across this guy. He must have been wondering why we were watching him...


ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME? That's what this guy must have been thinking.

Let me digress, yes ... the executives at Sketchclub have been slacking. This was actually last week's mark, but we've all been so busy that none of us finished our memory sketch ... hence the black and white values instead of color. But, to get the full effect, imagine this guy walking towards me without moving his arms, gliding up and down with each stride of his steps, with his hair flapping out from under the visor like a seagull's wings. Yep, that was him. And all the while he was eyeballing me with that look on his face, "Are you lookin' at me?"

On this day sketchclub had a guest artist come join me for lunch at daphnes. Patrick Morgan is a friend of mine from nickelodeon that used to go sketching with me evry week on our lunch breaks. Once we left daphnes. we spotted this guy. He looked very perplexed to me as he was getting a ticket from the movie machine. It is always fun to see what each artist remembers and how we interpret the subject.

The clouds may not be absolutely accurate, but what can I say, one can not pay attention to everything at a time...

The Sketchclub "marks" are usually selected by their unique atributes ... suffice it to say Marcos and I knew instinctively this was our "mark."

Here's my memory sketch for today.

This guy was like a human polar bear. We caught him at the crosswalk as he lumbered along.


when you see someone like this cross your path. there is only one option. And that is of course to run back to your desk and draw him.

Joe suggested a few days ago that we did a sketch of the group while we make sparks come out of our pencils at lunchtime. So after the drawing had been sitting around the office for a few days now, Marcelo just reminded me of it so it goes (I see it and I feel hungry already)

As I said we had a lot of choice. I couldn't resist sketching this guy too.


Today we had a field day in our sketchbooks. Once we were kicked out of Daphnes. May I just say that if we had been talking they would not of kicked us out, after all we did buy our lunch there. Anyway we have found our new drawing spot on tuesdays. The main street produce market. What a gem!!! And our first victim.


We had quite a lot of potential characters to choose from this time. This lady turned out to be our first choice.

No respect! Can you believe it, we got ourselves kicked out of the restaurant we normally eat at during our Sketchclub lunch. We weren't exactly eating anymore, and we were doing funny drawings of the patrons ... so that prompted the manager to politely ask us to leave. I remarked to the other Sketchclub executives (quietly, bravely ... while were out of ear shot of the manager) "I'll bet if we had just finished our food, and were talking instead of drawing the manager wouldn't have said a word to us."

Alas, that's the way it went down. But, the Silver lining is that we moved to a different eating establishment for some coffee, and we found a doozie of a place to draw! And, we found a funny "mark" for our memory sketch. So, in the end, it all worked out.
