Drawing at the Mall

While studying figure drawing my instructor would have us go to the nearby mall and draw people. Each time we had a challenge to draw people at the food court, draw people walking, draw people on the first floor (fore shortening was the toughest), draw people on the escalators, etc. This is one of the best ways to practice and get some pencil mileage and study figure drawing.

Gavino & Kike

I wasn’t sure what to post next. Opportunity presented itself last night. I went to my very talented friend’s gig @ Mezcal’s in San Jose. We both did what we love. He played and I sketched and listened. Given I came in kinda late but I still managed to put few lines in. Gavino plays just about any string instrument under the sun – guitar, vihuela, sitar, ukalele, etc… I heard him play sitar once, which moved me very deeply, I am looking forward to sketching that up sometime. With him and his buddies (Enrique and Jose) jam away every Tuesday. If anyone of you likes spanish, latino, improv music come down to Mezcal downtown San Jose every Tuesday night – I believe it starts @ 7pm.

Kike is on the left and Gavino is on the right I didn’t have the time to manifest Jose (bass) :/. All that you see is about 30 min worth on Bienfang 360 and bk ballpoint. Enjoy.
