I’ve been doing so many signs and other projects lately, I haven’t had a lot of time to just sketch. But the last couple of weeks, I have returned to my old stomping grounds in Santa Cruz. I am always so inspired when I am there and so, sketches! I visited my friend Cecelia at the Monterey Bay Aquarium last Friday, which always yields some drawings. I also witnessed a Herring Gull eating a pigeon. I also made some quick sketches before a hike at Wilder Ranch this Sunday. As frustrating as it can be to draw live animals, it is good practice for capturing general shapes quickly.
