It looked like it was going to be a beautiful day today, so I decided to do a mini-crawl in Davis. Sketching on your own turf is strange because you pass the same things on your way to work every day and end up tuning out buildings, trees, cars, people – they’re interesting, but you just see them too much for it to even occur to you to sketch them.

I ended up somehow at the Sacramento Zoo, too – but it started pouring so that turned out to be a very short trip. I say that just so nobody thinks there are zebras running around a college town (although there was a bandaged-up goat).
