Detroit MI - results

Postby MattFeazell » Sun Jun 22, 2008 2:59 am

Four of us met at Cafe 1923 in Hamtramck and decided to carpool down to the Riverwalk celebration going on downtown that same day. Lots of people, dogs, cotton candy and sketching opportunities to be had.

On the old-fashioned carousel, instead of wooden horses you could ride statues of Michigan wildlife.

It started raining about 2:30 and we got soaked. we all walked over to Greektown for lunch and more good coffee

Sounds like you had a good day, exept for getting wet. Love the idea of the carousel with wildlife to ride. Thanks for taking us along, through your sketches.

Matt - A good cup of coffee (and a sketch) is a fine way to start the sketchcrawl! Nice sketch of the view across to Canada. Good people sketches!!! I see you did a carousel too...the one I did didn't have trout, but we found a few fun animals for a carousel. Nice coffee sketch to end the day. Sorry the rain cut things short for you.

Really nice sketches, and I also loved the idea of the wild life carousel :D

A few I did before the rain, wind and hail chased us away from the Detroit riverfront:

I'd just finished sketching this fire boat when they started up the hoses.

Gotta have some car sketches in Detroit of course.

Looks like you were fascinated with "faces in the crowd", Matt. I like your trout on the carousel. The carousel that we sketched didn't have a trout, but it did have a cat with a fish in its mouth. I never got around to sketching that one though.

Sean, good job on the cars and that fire boat. The fire boat looks like it was fun to sketch.
