My second art project and reason for doing this blog is the Travel Sketching™ Workshop conducted primarily for designers by Richard Scott. I read about this workshop on Trumpetvine Travels, a blog as generous with its advice and information as it is with its beautiful sketches.

At the end of this week I'll be off to San Francisco to take this class. I'm excited and really looking forward to the experience. My supplies arrived on Wednesday and I felt like a kid on Christmas! More about the supplies in another post.

Here are a few of my travel sketches from airports, Napa Valley, Vermont and Chicago. They were all done within the last year and are quite small. I'm interested to see how the workshop effects my sketching. I always find it intimidating to sketch in public so I'm looking forward to the opportunity to draw in public with a group, safety in numbers and all that I guess!

The Adventure Begins

It seems as if everyone is blogging these days. I've been checking in regularly on quite a few blogs for a long time. They are mostly the postings of talented people from the art and design field. I've wanted to give it a try but couldn't find a reason to start. Now I have. 
I'm beginning three new art projects that are separate from my work at Remarque Paperworks but I'm sure will certainly effect what I do there. I plan to chart my progress by blogging and posting my creative endeavors. 

The first project began last night. I've started taking a figure drawing class. It's been a long time since I've been in the studio with a model, charcoal and newsprint and it shows!  It's good to be back in the studio and here in the blog world. I hope I progress quickly in both!
