sketchcrawl 13: berkeley

On saturday I met with the east bay contingent of world wide sketchcrawl 13. We drew on and around my old stomping ground, the UC Berkeley campus. I started in the life sciences building with the t. rex.

This little guy was circling overhead. I drew him twice

We all met up again at the campanile at 2:00. This bust of Abe on the side of the tower is by Gutson Borglum who carved Mt. Rushmore. In person this has a beautiful streaked green patina. On the right are the photographers taking the group photo, a shoe from the museum of anthropology, and some jottings from Cafe Strada.

The urn is outside the Hearst Womens Gymnasium which is a Bernard Maybeck/Julia Morgan design. More artifacts from the museum of anthropology

Great sketches from SC13. That's a really nice angle you captured in that first sketch. The Lincoln sketch turned out nice as well.

Thanks, Gerald. What a great day for it too. There was good weather and lots of creative energy. I'm looking forward to the next one.
