Sketchy: Everyday Matters

Assignment #30 Draw a chair.

9_07_b
I was inspired by an article in Artist's Sketchbook magazine about artist Mike Daikubara. He sketches in coffee shops with a time limit of 15 to 20 minutes using a small discreet sketchpad. I'm still a bit shy about public drawing so the idea of a tiny sketchpad appealed to me. I also tried one of his suggested techniques to begin drawing with the nearest object in sight then working from that point on. Mine happened to be my muffin. Although, the chair is not the focal point of the drawing, I thought this would be an interesting take on the chair challenge.

I read that same article. Love that magazine. My problem is, there is no Starbucks near so I can drink latte and sketch.

Seriously, really nice job.

Hi, dropping by via the edm list.

A smaller sketchpad and shorter intervals of time are some cool pieces of advice. I myself don't like to be too obvious when sketching and I've started toting along a small stack of 4"x6" index cards instead of a full-fledged sketchbook.

Love the composition of this sketch, by the way. Keep on drawing, and thanks for sharing!

What a great idea-starting with the closest thing-sure to result in much different drawings than I would do otherwise. Your sketch turned out great!
