These are last sunday's sketches. Didn't do as many. was still recovering from a 2-week flu and didn't spend as much time as the last two weeks.
This little girl sat there in this pose for almost a half hour without figgeting or moving. Amazing.
These last two are from later in the week.
New session in just over 12 hours.
NYC people: You slackers!!!! Show up!!!!!
I'll be there on the 8th, barring anything major coming up.
Great stuff! I just discovered this forum through Craig's List. Here are a couple of old subway sketches of mine:
Wow, someone found out about this through the postings on Craigslist. Good to know, I'll have to keep posting there.
wow thats really nice.
hehe ammish you draw them pretty fast! i always wait till there not looking at me then i try to draw then but the second our eyes meet i have to stop! im so lame. hehe
anyway I think the train thing is a great idea too bad it would be hard to bump into you guys !! i draw on the j train around 7:30 pm
well heres what i did recently - bah i hope this is cool for this topic - the heads are ppl on the subway- the hands are mine when i cant find a subject!
bah dubba post - i will fill this up with a sketch tomarro
These are the skills,,,,,really nice brushpen,,,,,especially considering the wiggle of the train........ What is the instrument you are using to get the differenty opacities of sepia??? I am totally confused........Anyway, I live in the city,,, I sketch like an addict,,,,I'm comin'....so there..
So glad that I found this thread!!!! can't wait...so inspirational and exciting!!! yeah!!!! sweet, awsome...fukkin' rad.....
tubular, even.....whickked dood.
I should try to come by. Things are busy as hell these days. I have a show of oil paintings in Brooklyn running right now and other projects are sucking up my free time.
Also, lately my trains have been waaay too crowded to sketch. I don't know what's changed. Usually the trains get emptier as the weather gets nicer, since so many lucky folks go on vacation. Not me tho. I'll be there...
Sorry everryone for not updating this post with sketches from last month. I swear that this weekend i will force myself to scan them all in.
For those planning to come out this Sunday, PLEASE DO. It sucks drawing by my lonesome self. Much more fun with people. And since Jin can't come next Sunday, i'd be really happy if even one of you shows up.
buskerdog - Good luck with your show. I know what you mean about finding the time. Things have been pretty hectic for me the last two weeks. As far as crowds on the subway, the last two months we've been skipping the whole subway thing and spending all our time in the Park, sketching there.
codakromek - thanks for that enthusiastic reply. I look forward to you coming out one of these Sundays (hopefully on the 5th)
Mankoon - the sketches look hot. I love the small one of the woman's legs crossed in the top left corner of the page. What's preventing you from joining us at 1:30 on Sunday?
ashrumm - thanks dude. I swear more are on their way.
P.S. for those of you that do decide to show up on the 5th, please be patient with me, I've been running late the last few weeks. But i'm usually there between 1:30 and 2:00
Just so folks know, another guy and myself are going to be organizing these events to be held on saturday afternoons. I've kind of accepted that my sundays are lost to me, but my saturdays right now are free again. I'll be sure to keep folks posted on that as soon as it's all hashed out.
yo man whats up? you guys cant let this thread go dead! im doing my own train sketches, but in tokyo - havent posted yet but keep this shit coming amish..
weeeee - i fanally got my lazy ass to Scan a few pages from the last few months. The reason it took so lon is that it took me some time to train my ass to scan while i was off slacking. I got a bunch more recent ones in another sketchbook but i didnt scan them beacuse as you can see, by some of the scans, my scanner started to crap out on me.
Maybe i'll scan the rest after this weekend's session.
so here goes nothing:
Great group activity <><> actually a great activity period <><> observing people as you have been doing is a terrific practice for anyone who is serious about becoming an artist!
I commend you on your efforts <> so many of us have times that could be used for drawing that we waste <> that is a shame <> you should always have some sort of sketching material with you to take advantage of these moments!
As always prolific, now for the others to share. Looks like the thing that was keeping me from commiting to anything ALL summer long will possibly happen next month, meaning I may very well be free enough to return in the Fall.
hey hey. I know this is kinda last minute notice, but because of a request from the only person that has been showing up religiously to the Subway Sketch Group (other then me), we're gonna meet up tomorrow, Saturday July 30th, at 1:30 at 1 Penn Plaza. Just moving to Saturday for this weekend only. Hope some of you can make it.
Very spontaneous! I see a lot of confidence in your strokes
Some really good work in this thread.
I'll be scanning what I drew sometime during the course of the week. I'm not the most accomplished of the group, but I'm working on changing that, and the only note worthy thing about my work is that I'm mighty proud of my gesture drawings.
I just wanted to take the time out to say, if you haven't shown up for one of the group sessions yet, then you're seriously missing out. It's encouraging for me to be interacting with a group of such skilled illustrators. I'm definetly going to make sure that I make as many of the sessions as my schedule will allow right now, and I will definetly make an effort to attend the Thursday S.O.I. events as well.
