22 Sketches of Artomatic


So, Artomatic has a tradition of anonymous (or semi-anonymous) individuals who leave gifts, poems or kind comments to participants;  the Benefactor, Brash, the Collector 2.0...

So, with that in mind, I thought that instead of making a regular "Top Ten" list or "Best of AOM" list, I'd try and make a sketch for my favorite displays of this year's show.  I didn't quite finish as many as I wanted, but I did get about 22 sketches done and distributed back to the artists who inspired them. The're not all stellar sketches, but I tried to do them quick, so lay off man.

No name, no email, no signature or website on it.  Just a small small (2" x 3 1/4" specifically) gesture to let them know they are among my favorites of this year.

Though it wouldn't take much to figure out I did them... (golly look, a blog post about it!)

Here's how they look as I put the sketches up in the artists' spaces.

In addition to these 22, I also loved what I saw from Missy Carr, Christopher Goodwin, G. Vollrath, Dominick Rabrun, Christopher Grady, Todd Gardner, Frederick Nunely, Jenny Walton, Annie Riker & Amy Keys, Joseph A Corcoran, Cory Orberndorfer, Sabrina Cabada, Jamie Gerhold, Nick Zimbro, Shambles Cross, Salvador Casco, Ray Allard, Liliane Bloom.

More pics after the jump!

It's been too long since I posted on our Urban Sketchers DC blog. At last here are a few recent sketches from trips on the metro and waiting rooms. I am looking forward to the sketch crawl at Artomatic 2012 in Crystal City this Saturday!

Smith Commons Gaia mural sketch

Smith Commons on H St commission the street artist Gaia to make this stunning mural on the side of their building. Pretty awesome. Had to draw it.

This got some other murals in town on my mind, so I am going to try and sketch a few more of them before I leave for the summer.
