mark #15

This is a place holder for mark #15. Didnt get the chance to do the drawing yet, but here are some visual notes I took. This gal was carrying a mysterious box down the street. My guess was that she was going to the UPS store. After following her for a few blocks, I can confirm that my guess was correct.

Mark 15

We moved to a new location down Wilshire Blvd. to sketch this week. Good to mix things up and see a different crowd of passers-by.  Here's my take on Mark 15 "Woman with Box".

Mark 14

(backdated post. actually finished on 3/1)

What was it doing raining in LA?? To be fair, this guy was a lot happier than I ended up sketching him.


My take on our rainy day mark:

Wilshire mark #14

Rainy day on Wilshire. Our 14th mark had a unique way of holding his umbrella. It was held really high up. Perhaps he was blocking the rain for an imaginary little friend.

Mark 13

Windy day, this one. I think it was the flashy belt, red shoes, and frilled purse that made her jump out enough for us to make her our mark.

mark 13

A windy moment on Wilshire Blvd. Here's a quick sketch of our 13th mark.

Our recent sunny sketch session on Wilshire brought out a large number. We had about 8 folks sketching which was great! Hard to keep up with the sketches everyone was doing and the conversations! ;)
As we gathered on to find our "mark" across the way from our sketch spot the wind picked up and we saw our latest. So no, it's not that i didn't want to draw her face, I just captured her just as the wind was blowing all her hair into her face as she crossed the street while searching through her purse.
My take on our latest:

Mark 12

We saw our mark just after sitting down to our usual spot and it was instantly obvious who our pick would be this week. My take on our punk rock boy and his dog.

Our 12th mark is a cool dude walking his pit bull. I wonder if his dog's name is Spike.

Mark 12

This week's mark was so obvious that we didn't wait until the end of our lunch break to select one. This guy and his pitbull were out on the street looking for attention, and they got it. The one area I didn't see well was below his knees, but Phil described his shoes & socks well, so I think I nailed them.
