Did this fun little sketch awhile back of local donut shop, Spudnuts, with a few friends from the Charlottesville Urban Sketchers group. Little did I know that this local icon had been sold and was soon to shut its doors forever. For years, Spudnuts was a favorite among the locals and students at UVA. […]
I was flipping through my sketchbook the other day, when I came across these watercolor sketches I did during my visit to Bali, Indonesia last year which I totally forgot to post. From temples to restaurants, from sculptures to coconut-waste piles, Bali has something beautiful or eye-catching everywhere you look. The coconut pile (which […]
Met up with my local Urban Sketchers group, eager to try out the S Pen on my new Samsung Note 5. I was running late that day, so didn’t really have time for more than the one sketch shown above. I used S Note, an app that comes pre-installed. Overall, I was very happy with how […]

The event was organized by Jessie Chapman, who is a long-time board member of UrbanSketchers.org, an international organization that promotes sketchbook drawing. The exhibit features […]
Went to the downtown library today with some of the Urban Sketchers. Had a nice view of the street from a cozy window seat in the children’s book section. #urbansketchers #sketchbook
Met with the Urban Sketchers this Super Bowl Sunday at Buffalo Wild Wings. We got there well before the big crowds came, which was good since that gave us plenty of time to sketch, eat and talk without feeling pressured to give up our table. First image was colored digitally at home.
Joined the Urban Sketchers for the plein air event at the Miller School of Albermarle. It was a gorgeous day of sitting in the sun and the grass! Here’s hoping we get a few more days like this one before winter sets in. You can see photos of other artists at the […]
I’m really enjoying being a part of the Charlottesville Urban Sketchers!
Things were fairly hectic during my latest trip to India and Bali, but I did manage to get a few sketches in here and there. I even got a chance to play around with my travel watercolor set, which was pretty nice.
It’s been awhile since I posted any sketchbook images, so I thought I’d take a moment to share a few. The first one is of a mechanic on his lunch break that started dozing off while I was waiting for my car to be inspected. I knew my car was almost ready, but I couldn’t […]
