The Portrait Party - February 1, 2014

The portrait party was a lot of fun! Unlike our usual relaxed meet ups, this was structured and timed, and at the end each of us
had 12 drawings. This was the most I did during one day with USk (and a reminder that deadlines are not all too bad),
although it's easier for me to get focused and speed up with a portrait than with a cityscape. The grid that we made of our
drawings was a great idea, too. Lots of thanks to Mark for organizing all this!

Here are my 12 drawings (from left to right, top to bottom): Mark, Shawne, Lance, Swami, Toy, Amy, Jim, Joy, Jason, Ben,
Josiah, and Deborah.


During lunch at Le Pain Quotidien I did one more sketch, trying a new set of brush pens which I didn't know how to approach for half a year. It was nice to add another small accomplishment to the sketching day.

  1. Good for you that you sketched everyone! Nice job on these. I don't sketch quickly either, and especially if I am doing people, so I am impressed that you were able to do 12 in a timed setting. I like the last sketch too...quite different to see you work in ink like this.
