One Week 100 People
One Week 100 People is This Week! Let's get sketching!
Marc Toro Holmes and Liz Steel have organized a world wide challenge to sketch 100 people in one week. Maybe we will meet the goal, maybe not but trying is all the fun.... and in NYC you can't complain about lack of subject matter!
Subways, streets, parks, restaurants, out the window, in your building....they're all over the place. And one nice place to sit and sketch them is indoors at the Essex Market. Recently opened in a new building on Delancey Street, this indoor market and food hall replaces the WPA era buildings along Essex Street. Up graded, posh, and chocked full of food from around the world, people will be shopping, eating, hanging out and passing time. Let's get them into our sketches.
