Hi Dave! Looks like you all had a good day in Vancouver. I adore your sketches of the statues. What fun they are.

Sketching the laughing statues as material for the Artist Trading Cards was a clever move. Good show, guys.

@gaelwriter
Thanks.. I was trying to do a quick set of ATC's. My first attempts at ATC's. They were supposed to be kind of cheesie and crude but colorful so I thought each different statue pose would work to create a set.
I was also going to try postcards too but I was not feeling well so did not get a chance to try.
I was not particularly happy with my sketching that day. I usually like to sketch people but was too tired to get off my butt and move around :lol:

I do like to experiment with new ways, things and ideas on these sketchcrawls. Maybe on the next crawl I'll try doing a comic strip :think: :problem: :shifty:

The really great thing about the " Laughing Statues" is that they don't move. But the best thing of all is watching visitors with them. I have seen some really strange things people do to them, from giving them handbags, applying wigs and even grabbing their backsides. People are not afraid to touch this $1.5. Million set of artwork.

Thanks for visiting
Dave

Hi Cyber Dave,
Just thought you'd be chuffed; our Tally member Mary has been recirculating your sketches from previous Vancouver results; she especially liked your serruptitious sketches of your group from WWSC 35--and wants to do that here. Funny she had no idea we had been in contact!

Dave - it sounds like you had a big group there! Pity I missed you all.
The ATC sounds like a great idea!

It's really interesting - so many people come up for a chat when you sketch! I really like that part of sketching.

Thanks mark - the shadow was made up to make it look more interesting!
