    NYC's Subway Sketch Group - (feb. 2006 Subway update)

    Inspired by Digi, goldenavatar and myself are starting our own subway sketch group in NYC. As a precursor to the main event (which should be happening the weekend of March 26-27th) I scanned in some pages of my sketchbook that i take with me for those long rides on the subway. Enjoy.

    love em, man. great vitality to em. you took classes w/ george pratt, right? I had the fortune of having him for a few semesters here, totally changed the way I drew.

    a crit, or suggestion I guess, for your sketches- try incorporating the environment of the subjects, I think the feeling of the subway would come across really well this way. just a suggestion, though. hope to see some more!

    Ya dude, i hate backgrounds. My major weakness. I dont really get to the backgrounds cause I usualy don't have a lot of time to get to them. Becasue i use a brush pen and the subways are so damn shaky a lot of time is wasted trying to control the line. I had an awesome caligraphy pen do this kind of stuff but dumbass me broke it.

    This recent bunch has a hint of background in them.

    By the way, I posted up on just about any art forum you can think of about the next rest of the dates in April for the sketchbook group. Hopefully we'll get more attendees as time progresses and more folks slowly, but surely(?) show up.

    Subway Sketch Group - (04.10.05)

    Golden - the posts are helping, now all you gotta do is show up, hehe.

    Digi - come back and check in on your bastard children.



    Here's a new batch.

    Winjer showed up, and a newcomer, Jin. We took the E downtown, but there was no one on the train. so we ended up going to the park. Initialy tried to go to the Zoo but seing as how we're all broke we went to a grassy area and sketched until 6:30. I sucked most of the day. Didnt start getting good until the very end.

    E train:

    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.
