an afternoon of sketching

Photobucket

Yesterday afternoon I met with my sketch group for the first time in several months. It was so nice to just drink coffee, and chat, and sketch. Thanks guys for the great conversations, the feedback and the encouragement :) I always feel so refreshed and inspired after spending some time with them.

I drew some butterflies, experimented with their shape and pattern. I prefer the ones with a more bulbous shape to the more realistic ones. I think the purple butterflies on the top left turned out the best.

I also just wanted to say congratulations to my friend, Karen Klassen, for having some work chosen for L├╝rzer's 200 Best Illustratiors Worldwide book.
