Moleskine sketches #2



I just got back from New York, I went to visit my Uncle David. Unfortunately he's very sick with cancer. He's more than just "an uncle of mine", I care for him dearly. I was going to be there before a serious surgery that he's got to go through, but last minute they re-scheduled his surgery for October 6Th. For those of you who actually read this blog, I would appreciate your prayers for my Uncle. Thank you.

While in New York, I did manage to do a few pages of sketches in my favorite sketchbook, my moleskine. I stayed with my friend Fred Harper who lives near Wall Street. The drawing on the left was sketched of Fred while he was sketching. We were in a low lit Pub/Restaurant it was like drawing in the dark . . . I didn't know what it looked like until we got back to his place. A fun sketch anyways.

The sketch on the right is of a man who fell fast asleep on the subway somewhere in Manhattan. I couldn't resist.

Just a reminder that my next class at Schoolism.com

Sorry to hear about your uncle. My wife lost both her parents to cancer two years ago and it was horrible. Just know that your uncle appreciates you being there for him. I hope everything works out for the best.

Two things I was wondering: What did you sketch these with & What is all that writing that is present by a lot of your sketches?

Hopefully your uncle will beat back this horrible disease, maybe one day we'll finally get a cure.

Prayers out.

Sitting at the DMV the other day, I was making several people nervous by sketching them. Sleeping subjects would be less prone to movement too.
