I'm crawling in the Tampa/St. Pete area. Going to the Saturday Morning Farmer's Market, then to SPIFFs.

There ought to be tons of cool costumes to draw from various countries.

Holy crap! Those are fantastic. I love the view across the street one. I'll post mine tomorrow, but they sure look ameteurish compared to yours.

Shawn-fantastic watercolors, but the "Need a tune up" blows me away--so strong-great.
Jonathan is off to a great start-wished I had started drawing at a young age.

Love the "Need a Tune Up" sketch! I'm listening to music on iTunes as I look at all the SC results, so it's almost as if your sketched musician is "performing" the music! Nice job capturing the expression.

You know you're in for a great sketchcrawl thread when somebody starts out by even sketching their breakfast. I loved all of these, but that box of paints is really great! Cute bunny, and good for you for tackling the guitarist! Not easy.

It was a crazy-beautiful day here in St. Petersburg, Fla. So nice my wife and I rode our bikes 8miles to downtown for the St. Pete International Folk Festival (SPIFFs).

This ... would come back to bite us in the ass.

I recently bought a Fabriano Artist's Journal and today seemed like a grand day to break it in:

Image

Some of the first sketches, at SPIFFs.

Fiji Islands and Peru and a random woman in a dress.

Image

Wandered around for a little bit, and so many of the countries items were SO intricate I didn't think I'd have time to draw them. So, off to China:

Image

Then off to see some of the typically awesome Native American set-ups. One year they had a wolf on display. This year a life-sized Teepee

Image

Then we sat under a tree (my first bit of shade on this sunny, cloudless day) as she ate DimSum from the Taiwan booth. This was the view, minus a few ugly speedboats.

Image


Great day ... unfortunately ... I wasn't wearing Sunblock! (note the redness or the locations are not an exaggeration. :( )
