My copy of Jerusalem signed and sketched by Guy Delisle.
I went to Politics & Prose with my sister tonight and heard Guy Delisle talk about his the making of his "Travel Chronicle" comics and especially his new book Jerusalem.  He was a great speaker with a really nice sense of humor and was pleasure to listen to & talk with.

Bonus, I got these sweet signatures & sketches from him in a couple of his books. (which are amazing and everyone should buy them and read them all now.  Like, NOW now.  Like tonight, go buy it tonight.)

Dr. Sketchy's Baltimore

Lauren Marleaux at Dr. Sketchy's in Baltimore 2

I checked out a Dr. Sketchy's session at The Windup Space in Baltimore this week. (on a school night *gasp*!)

I didn't accomplish much worth showing as the vast majority of the time was spend on very short sketches, but I managed to produce a couple of decent, if unfinished drawings.  Still, it was fun drawing burlesque model Lauren Marleaux as she channeled her best Joan Holloway before sharing her more usual garb. (and let me add it was very humbling seeing the drawings by all the extremely talented artists who also showed up for the event.)

Waterfront SE

Waterfront SE
We intended to go into Nationals park to have our sketchcrawl during the ballgame, but had a hard time finding each other!  So when I finally ran into Matt we decided to stick to the waterfront and sketch a bit there.  I finished one sketch, but only got through a little of the other.

Drawing Marathon

Alexis Drawing Marathon

VisArts in Rockville MD had its 3rd annual "Draw 'til you drop" marathon this weekend. Organized by the talented Ricardo Pontes, (see his blog post for more info on how it went- theres a picture of me in there somewhere) the marathon was a 12 hour life drawing session where we were able to draw 7 different models through out the day.  It was a lot of fun, and went by in a flash.  Can't wait for the next one. There are a couple more sketches at my Flickr account.
