arboretum desert agave
Tottenham Hotspur beat Arsenal today, 2-1. To those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, don’t worry, this isn’t a post about the footy/soccer, but I just wanted to say that. AVB very much In. Anyway… this is a desert agave, sketched at the UC Davis Arboretum last week when, in my busy days of program reviews and mountainous inboxes, I really needed to go and draw something organic at lunchtime. The Arboretum has such an abundance of interesting foliage that I really am blessed it is mere steps from my office. In fact, the next Let’s Draw Davis sketchcrawl (I wasn’t able to organize one in February) will be at the Arboretum, I think. Saturday March 16th, from 11-3, starting at the Arboretum Terrace and ending at the Wyatt Deck. Details to be posted soon. In the meantime, I’m off to celebrate our victory in the North London Derby.

    Very nice! I love your buildings, but I can understand the need to want sketch something organic. Do you go draw everyday? Do you ever sit at your desk and draw? I wouldn’t be able to help but do so.

      I try to draw every day, and prefer to go out and do some sketching, but sometimes time and eating stops me. Whenever I have a lunchtime where I need to stay inside at my desk I will try to draw a person from a photo, usually on an envelope. Sometimes I will draw my desk at lunchtime while listening to a football podcast. I never draw at any other time during the day though – I’m just too busy! Except doodles when I’m on the phone, or people in meetings. I have such little time to draw so my lunchtimes are precious like that.
