Late sketch image

After 17 years of living in Chicago, I finally sketched the Alcala’s Western Wear life size sign on Chicago Ave just west of Ashland. The weather was a bit cool but, I stood against a building in full sun so Between the warmth of the sun and the bricks that were radiating a little heat I wasn’t uncomfortable. You can note the neon tubes that trace the sculpture’s form. Pitt Pens in a Rhodia sketchbook.

Bernie's in town

For those of you feeling the creep of Spring Fever, what could be a better tonic than joining me in beautiful Mt. Vernon in Washington state for a 3 day sketching boot camp! April 21-23. No holds barred, I’m giving up all the tricks in the bag. Drawing while out and about, on the run as it were. Interested folks should look into the workshop at the Dakota Art Supply Workshops. In the words of the immortal Rocky Balboa, “Go ferrit”.
