Here's a few more from Ohio City. That's St. Ignatius with the big tree in the middle. Lots of details that I sort of gave up on!

Join us for a sketchcrawl at Lakeview Cemetary on Saturday, July 14th, 2012 from 10am to noon (or later). We will meet at the Garfield Monument, but from there people can scatter anywhere. You can enter Lakeview Cemetary from Euclid Ave. and follow the directional signs to the monument.

Our Central-St. Martin's Industrial Design class had a reunion hosted by successful classmate Chris Taylor. Here he is parking his boat in front of his house on the Thames near London, England. Very much a designer's house (very minimalist style) manufactured in Germany and shipped to England. We enjoyed great times with old friends, capped off with a boat ride in this very same yacht that was paraded in the Queen's regatta for the Jubilee the week before.
I find that while I am sketching, I meet so many people with their dogs. All of the dogs are friendly and well-behaved. This morning, I met a man who was walking is pit bull, seemed like a bit of an older dog, or a dog that was just not too happy about being out in the heat. The dog was in the fenced area behind where I was sitting, and every so often, I kind of sensed that he was back there to see what I was doing. . . . Or, if I happened to have treats.
Another thing that I had thought about this last week was the state of Cleveland as a city. So many people have the impression that it is run-down or unattractive or dangerous. I just don't see that. I see the city the way I draw it. Sure, it maybe cutsey, but this is the way I see it.

Went to a Dr. Sketchy life drawing event last week. I won't post the drawings of the models as they're not really what this forum is about, but I did sketch a bunch of the artists before the start of posing and while the model was on break. Just trying to stay loose.
