that was 2012

2012 drawings and urban sketches

Happy New Year! 2013 is so far all about sitting around at home watching movies, but the busy days begin again tomorrow. 2012 was pretty busy too, travels to London, Paris, Portland, Santa Cruz etc, the publication of The Art of Urban Sketching, appearances on the cover of the Davis Enterprise, many public showings (and sales!) at the Pence Gallery, a talk at the Avid Reader, a feature on WordPress’s Freshly Pressed, many sketchcrawls in Davis and a huge sketchcrawl in London. I would do a run-down of the year, but that takes a long time and I still have other drawing projects to work on, so I must get back to them. In the meantime, above is a selection of my drawings from the start to the end of 2012, and I must give a massive thank you to all who have followed this year’s progress on my sketchblog and elsewhere. Happy New Year! Here is a new year’s resolution – get out and draw. Cold, hot, wet, I drew in all sorts of weather this year (mostly hot) and all practice is worth it.

Have a sketchtastic 2013!

UPDATE: Here are all of the fire hydrants I drew in 2012 too. Not a bad little collection!
