January Sketching

I spent most of January studying some tech stuff for work, developing comics ideas, and managing a sick cat.  However, some regular sketching did get done as well. New Year's Day was very cold but I made sure to do one urban sketch in the Close-In Southeast industrial area.

Bill Sharp invited the Portland urban sketchers to his lovely studio, where we had a great time talking art, snacking, and sketching each other.

Bill took pictures and caught me in a sketch!

I managed to spend some weekend afternoons at cafes and did quick sketches while working on comics projects...

...and also did one quick sketch at the Horse Brass Pub.

Tomorrow I'll post about the January sketchcrawl a couple of weeks ago.  Gotta get caught up!
