Balboa Park

I spent almost a whole day in the park, at the Spanish village and just walking  around. The buildings however proved to be a mega-challenge to sketch with all the intricacies of the decorations.

San Siego

My new job and schedule make it even harder to sketch every day. I went to San Diego for business and I managed to squeeze in few sketches right before the rain started. I was under dressed (it is California after all ... and I assumed it must also be hot) and one of the days I was there it rained cats and dogs. I was so cold I did not go anywhere. These are the rainy sketches:

In the air

I got so bored on my flight to San Diego that I started sketching hands - left and right. 6 of them in total. See if you can find them here:

World of Coca-Cola

It has an interesting architecture, but that is all ther is. All form, no content. It is not a plant or anything like that, just a huge marketing plow to get money from people. I don't even drink coke so I did not feel like spending money there. Unfortunately, in the heat of t he moment I ended up visiting the Asquarium which is write next to the World of Coca Cola. Very crowded, insanely noisy and most importantly, it puts up delphin shows and has captive whales. And I can;t stand that... but somehow I ended up supporting this vulgar practice ....

Fox theatre

I did this rather quickly on the spot, then added color at home. It was getting late and I was far away from my temporary home.

High theatre

Difficult building to sketch - round surfaces mixed with straight lines and angles, half of the building not visible because of the trees ...

Atlanta skyline

The last few weeks were crazy - running around like a chicken with no head in between jobs, taxes and so on...

I spent a week in Atlanta for some training - every morning i sketched the view from my hotel room. There was no time for anything else anyway. I used different materials each day to make it more fun.
