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 a children's book illustrator for the last 17 years and have more than 30 published books. I am also an Urban Sketchers correspondent and reportage-artist. My book Sketching People was published by Search Press and Barrons in 2016.
I give inspirational lectures, and run illustration and sketching workshops, both in the UK and abroad, for adults and in schools. I have delivered events in China, Brazil, Spain and the Dominican Republic. In 2017/18 I am running workshops in Chicago, Perth and Sydney.
