Dear Sketch Craw Forum,

This was my first Sketch Crawl. Although I only had a few stolen moments to draw one drawing, this was really fun.

I also believe I am the only Ann Arbor Sketch Crawler. If so, I will try to gather more folks for the next event. If not, I would love to meet others!

Ann, I love this one which is naive but moderate. Admire your braveness to sketch all alone. You're the best! :thumbup: :clap:

Hello! Thanks for the comments!

I was getting my hair done and was waiting for my color to process; so that's 40 minutes to sketch with nowhere to go! My stylist was shocked to see what happened. It was so much fun! I haven't sketched in many, many years like this, out in the open.

I am trying to improve and I suppose just getting a pencil to paper and observing different styles and methods is how it happens! Looking forward to the next one! It will be great to learn from you, professional sketchers.

Best wishes,
Katie

Hi Katie,

it certainly does not show that you did not do a lot of sketching recently !
Yours does look very professional :thumbup:

Earlier this year I started my vacation sketchbook while getting a foot massage/pedicure in Bangkok Airport - the sketch shows my pants, legs and feet plus part of the two ladies working on my feet (started the sketch too close to the upper edge of the page) - the ladies found it very amusing !

Some years ago I spent a few days in Ann Arbor with a friend - originally we wanted to drive to Chicago but never made it that far, preferred Ann Arbor and Michigan with the many cafes, quilt shops, antique shops etc. Found a fabulous cafe in Ann Arbor but have forgotten the name - most impressive French Toast portions I have ever seen :D
Waiting for more sketches from Ann Arbor in the next Sketcrawl !

Greetings from Munich,
Karin
