Milwaukee

Published by at 2:59 pm under sketchbook,travel

Just got back yesterday from Milwaukee. I actually liked it a lot (unlike the last time I visited which was for a convention, in the winter, about 10 years ago). This time we were there for the wedding of our friends Tim and Sarah:

They threw a great shindig. We also got to the Art Museum, which is architecturally stunning:

Here’s a fun drawing I did at the entrance to the main galleries, and a photo of me drawing it:

They have a couple of nice suits of armor — a subject I can never resist drawing:

Armor!

Milwaukee also has a pretty decent zoo, but I won’t make you look at my zoo sketches unless you want to. Except the penguin.
