I'm on a roll. Two outings in two days!
Chandler O'Leary has a show of her sketchbooks, called "Jaunt + Jot"
at Feast, a community art space in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma.
She invited Urban Sketchers Tacoma to have a sketch outing after a
social hour at the show.
I've followed Chandler's sketchbook blog, Drawn the Road Again,
for a few years. She's joined in a couple USk Seattle's outings. I've
admired how she can create such wonderful travel sketches in such a
small book (usually a Moleskine pocket sketchbook).
Enlarged scans of the sketchbooks were pinned to the walls. A few actual sketchbooks were under glass.
to the outing, we gathered to look at the show and have a social hour.
We put out out sketch kits to share. Chandler has minimalist one (the
white disk holding the sketchbook page is a jar of water).
of her sketches from the road are of unusual, vintage signs. She gave
us a list of interesting places to sketch on the Hilltop and I chose
this candy shop, especially when I saw the sign!
is my sketching set up. I hold the coroplast board and sit on the
stool. The pill bottle holds water and fits through a custom cut hole
in the board.
We met back at Feast at 12:30 to share sketches.
