Funeral Home on D Street

Spread 10 of the Davis Moleskine… this is a funeral home on D Street, sketched from outside the Cafe Mediterranee opposite. I’m struggling to get these sketches in at the moment, splitting them over lunchtimes on different days (they seem to take me longer than usual, I’m still getting used to drawing larger and using these Pitt pens and this paper). I only have two and a half spreads left though! And I think I know what I’m going to draw.

The weather has changed here though. It’s now cold, there is rain, the long-awaited jumpers are out and at last it feels like autumn. Amazing to think that just a couple of weeks ago, it was pushing a hundred degrees.

A funeral home…reminds me of Six Feet Under, that was an enjoyable show to watch, back when we watched it. Never did see the last ones though. We watch Dexter now, that is a great show.

    More themes in common . .this is spooky . . I’ve been using Pitt pens virtually since I started sketching so about 6 years… love them….

    And Lesley (my wife) and I are just watching Dexter (series 4) . which her son-in-law sent to us . . the problem is that it is totally addictive . . . watched three episodes last night….

    Hi Pete,

    First LOVE your work! We too were great fans of Six Feet Under. If you never saw the last episode, you should try to find it and watch. The best series finale ever!!! And I agree that Dexter is great!
    Keep up the great sketching and posting!
