Sketch Group This Saturday & St. Jude Marathon

If you are attending the sketch group this Saturday, December 3rd, please note that the St. Jude Marathon will go right through that intersection, but I don't know at what time. Might make it difficult to get to a parking spot, but it will be worth it! Having to deal with events and traffic is just part of what being an Urban Sketcher is all about!

Memphis Urban Sketchers at India Fest

Last Saturday was India Fest, and a few of us met there to do some sketching.
1) My nephew Calvin's school band was playing there, so I sketched them first.
2) They have booths selling food set up by regions so that you can taste important dishes from each region.
3) Kids put on some great performances!
4) I made sure to sketch lots of people after making the students in my sketching class draw people last week.
5) So many people, so much going on!
