Vacation!

Published by at 10:51 pm under animals,sketchbook,tools & tech,travel

I just returned from a fantastic week of vacation in San Franisco. Lots of cable cars, parks, gorgeous weather, and expeditions down to Santa Cruz and Monterey, plus visits to many good friends we hadn’t seen in quite a while. Here’s the trip according to my sketchbook (which seems to favor mainly animals).

    Gareth, thanks for sharing these! They’re awesome!! I can’t wait to show them to Hannah – since seeing you sketch at Point Lobos, she’s taken her own art to a whole new level of interest in details and even asked for her own sketch book to carry (she’s been very into art ever since she discovered her first crayon….)
