Los Angeles, USA [RESULTS]

Postby monking » Mon Apr 13, 2009 8:25 am

First "results" post, here: viewtopic.php?f=45&t=3592&start=15#p17222

To continue the tradition, here's the results topic. I spent much of my time chatting and trying to think of cool places to go next, but I still got some nice images from the crawl. I enjoyed everyone's attitudes and styles. And I will certainly be bringing paper and pens to next year's Blessing of the Animals, whether in Los Angeles or not.

This was my first time crawling with the LA group, and what an amazingly cool bunch of people to sketch with. Monking led a merry band from Union Station through the Blessing of the Animals, Little Tokyo and Chinatown. I had a blast, and look forward to drawing with you all again! Full size images are available http://www.flickr.com/photos/frostfyre/ ... 4346653868.

Thanks to everyone for making this a fun event! I enjoyed exploring the city.

I'm also glad I got my favorite sketching pens (Uni-ball Signo) since all the ones I had finally ran out of ink. Kinokuniya Bookstore that we stopped by is one of only two stores in Los Angeles that carries these Japanese imports as far as I know. The one with squared-off cap is non-waterproof, and the one with angled cap is extra fine point (0.38mm) and is waterproof - they both have brown-black ink, which is basically a sepia tone:

Hello!
It was brought to my attention that my images didn't show up in my last post (thanks, Shiho!).
So here I go again:



Nice work, everyone!
This was my first time crawling with the LA group, and it was great to meet everyone. Thanks for the warm welcome :)
Below are a select few from my book:

I coincidentally met a business colleague, Dyana Valentine, at the Blessing of the Animals. She kindly took a photo of us sketch crew. It was a fun day, indeed!
