Advent 2014

Since winter poses an interesting dilemma for outdoor sketching, here's what happened when my friends came up with the idea to observe advent with one sketch a day until Christmas. And yes many of them accomplished over the lunch hour!

Ponte Sant'Angelo, Rome - Sketch from an old photo, the trip was in spring 2012.

The Pink Building! South facade.

The first digital drawing on the blog - the Advent word of the day was "branch," decided to doodle something with the Cintiq tablet I use at work.

Word of the day was "urban." I was looking for a much grander scale but still satisfied with the quickness of this one.

Another that's not a building! Still a good application of the ink.

The end of the outdoors is near...

The "MiesDonald's," Chase/Exelon Plaza, Clark + Monroe

Quick thumbnail of Olive Park, just south of Navy Pier looking west toward the skyline.

Will need some new pens soon..

Outdoor cafe underneath the Marc Chagall sculpture in Chase Tower Plaza, Dearborn/Monroe

Then and Now Part 1 - layers of Michigan Avenue street-wall from Millennium Park. Just the beginning of several examples of modern glass skyscrapers peeking up behind the historic Michigan street-wall from Roosevelt to Randolph.

Pattern in a riverwalk railing and the facade of the building on the other side of the river. Riverwalk/LaSalle St.

A great rusted grimy thing that sits in the river, along both sides of all bridges.
