This is a 3 1/2' X 5 1/2' piece I've been working on that's up at the Workhouse Art Center at the moment. It still seems a touch unfinished to me, so I may fiddle with it some more, maybe add some color. Who knows..

Ricardo pointed out to our sketchcrawl group that The Dying Gaul was on temporary loan to the NGA, and gathered a bunch of us to go sketch it. While the crowd around the sculpture was deep, everyone found a decent unobstructed view or two to draw from.

As far as pop culture figures who make good mural subject, DC has a pretty good knack for picking them. Marilyn Monroe, Duke Ellington, Chuck Brown, and Frederick Douglas among others. Well, earlier this season the Dacha Beer Garden opened up with a pretty spectacular mural of Elizabeth Taylor keeping watch over their beer drinkers down below.

Part of me just wants to say "presented with no commentary" and leave it at that, but I don't want this to be mistaken for some kind of libertarian protest or a complaint about park rangers like we've seen in the last week. I only felt as though it would be interesting to go check out the Mall and see how it looked when "barricaded". Now, if instead you want take this as a criticism of politicians not doing their job, go crazy. Especially those that instigated the shutdown then shamelessly postured in front of cameras to complain about it's results. Not that I feel like sketching those nincompoops.

Crafty Bastards was just a couple of weeks ago. It's similar to SPX, as it's the kind of fair you walk into just thinking you're just going to browse, then walk out realizing you spent every bit of cash you had on you. I swear I really didn't think I'd actually spend every dime on me, I thought I was just going to sketch...

Inspired by Joel's sketches from last year, I checked out this year's H Street Festival. Food, weird cars, rollergirls, art and lots of people. Sadly I missed an opportunity to try a faux-cronut, but otherwise a lot of fun.
I'm starting to enjoy putting sketches together in strip form. It's taking me a little longer to put together and sketch, but I'm diggin' it.
