Alchemy is a great little bar in Park Slope, Brooklyn on 5th avenue. "so what?" I hear you cry, "My word, didn't we wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning." is my response to that. I guess the honeymoon's over.

I think this was one of my favourite drawings from the Rose Bowl, I almost abandoned it at one point because I felt the truck in the foreground was all wrong. I stuck with it because I know I have a big problem with patience. I was going to add some color but then again I liked it as it was. I might add color at some point and repost it but this is what it looks like when it looks like this. Profound.

Franklin Park is my local bar about a ten minute walk, great beer garden and free WiFi. A real gem in Crown Heights. 12 good beers on tap, that's more than could fit on to this drawing, I might have to try again.

These guys sat in the chairs they were hoping to sell were complaining about the lack of interest. Apparently gas prices were keeping the punters away and the recession wasn't helping and the chap on the left had an argument with his daughter about getting a tattoo, she didn't want one. I might not have heard that correctly.

Yes folks it's true, I was hanging out with George last night and he's all "You should move out here and be a movie star" and I'm all "You should move to Crown Heights and help renovate our kitchen". Oh how we laughed.

This is Theresa Palm, she is the closest I could come to posting a Palm Tree. I have had a good day drawing many a palm tree but with no scanner, they will just have to wait. I'll be able to post my first palm tree on Tuesday so mark your calenders good people of the world. Having a great time in LA.

I'm in LA and due to circumstances beyond my control was not able to draw yesterday on top of which my trustee traveling scanner got broken in transit so I'm hopefully going to be able to buy a new one today and draw a palm tree to boot. This drawing was on my desktop and available for blogging purposes, enjoy!

It's one thing to show illustrations and drawings that have been laboured over but this is a sketch blog and was started to show my attempts at drawing from life. This sketch was done at Franklin Park on my way home from the city. It was done quickly with a ruling pen dipped in ink, no room for error here, each mark is as permanent as it is quick.
I'm off to LA this morning, so my next posting should include a palm tree.
