Here are some photos and some of the sketchbook drawings that people did on the last Sheffield SketchCrawl.
We spent the day in Graves Park, where there is a Rare Breeds Centre, so we had fun sketching the animals. Unfortunately, Barbara only remembered to get the camera out later on, when we were drawing by a small lake.
Though on the whole it was a hot, sunny day, in these pics we were sheltering under the trees from the rain.
While we were there, a young girl came along the footpath with her mum. She was keen to see what we were up to. Les (above) lent her a sketchbook and she joined in:
Below are a few drawings by some of the other people who came along to sketch with me. You can see what I came up with on my main blog here and here.
I have been an illustrator for nearly 30 years and have more than 30 published books, 4 of which I've also written. I am also an Urban Sketchers correspondent and run Urban Sketchers Yorkshire. You can see all my books and browse my sketchbooks on my website.
Another aspect of my work is my events: I do around 50 days of educational/inspirational work a year, both in the UK and abroad. Email me if you would like to book a talk, workshop or school visit. If you are interested in a particular aspect of my work, want to follow the creation of an individual book or find out more about my SketchCrawls, check out the labels below.
