Sketch Club EAST

Mark McDonnell formed this division where after lunch, Sketch Club EAST identifies a person of interest, usually for their unique or distinct characteristics too. The subject is briefly studied without drawing. Once back from lunch and back at the drawing board, the subject is drawn from memory. (Due to the sucess of The Sketch Club, this division was formed . . .thank you Marcelo, Steve, Marcos, and paved the way!)

"The Old Couple"

Today's mark was a wonderful shuffling older woman dressed for the good ol' cold Southern California winter. As she gingerly shifted across the concrete jungle that is Costco, (with an obvious stuggle due to some "special" weight compensation), her husband eagerly awaited . . . .patiently . . . as the minutes ticked by. Our aim was for the wife, but I just had to include the second half. So, here's my recollection of the lady in question, plus one.

And as they say, "Bird's of a feather, flock together."

Poor sap...

Well, we all spotted this guy while leaving Costco on Mon Feb 13th.... He was a gorilla of a man who defnitely knew sometiing was up as our group kept staring him down. He protected his vegetarian meal as if it was the last bit of plant life in the hazy jungle.... he seemed tense,afraid we were stalking his lunch for the taking...Poor sap, never even saw this coming....

I am still laughing...

Whatta Brute

This was one of the more riskier memory sketches. The whole time I was looking at him he was staring me down...

This guy was of real interest, not only did he look
like a mob boss, but he also looked like he had done
some time. he was very protective of his salad, he
held it real close and tight and had big chewing
expressions, while
being very aware of his
surroundings. he knew we were eyeballin him.

Here's my memory sketch. This guy looked like he was part of the Mob. Scarry fella.

My Little 1930's Flapper Girl

For this past week's memory sketch we deceiced to do a drawing of the young girl in front of us, but with the theme of a 1920/30's flapper thrown in the mix. With that in mind, it was a prefect way to pay homage with my artist ablitites, to the late great Freddie Moore. I tried to capture the simplicity of that era's designs and do it all in only one sketch just to test myself . . . and I was running out of time. So here she is:

Well, this week we did our mark of a little girl, her hair was a bob cut w/the center pulled up into this cute little ponytail protruding off the top of her head. I just did a quick sketch this go around.... but felt it was still successful. I suggested lets put her into the 1920's era, so added the play dress, the worn boots/shoes and the dark wool socks
