June's SketchCrawl was a bit damp. Well, I guess we can't complain: apart from a few showers at the end of the one in Graves Park, we have been very lucky with the weather so far (which, for England, is a miracle).
Were we faint hearted, when we saw that the forecast was so abysmal? Not on your life! We stayed in the cemetery as long as was practical (above is Porridge the dog, investigating Maya, our youngest, 7 year old member), then mid morning, when the skies opened, we moved to the Botanical Gardens, to the shelter of the glasshouses:
Most of us fitted into the few cars, but a handful trudged the whole way through torrential rain. We SketchCrawlers are made of stern stuff!
Below is a selection of the sketches that people did on the day. My work is on the main blog 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.
