previous post, Christina, Nora, Carla and I attended the Urban Sketchers Seminar in Chicago. Christina posted a photo of the group and a sampling of our sketches on the Cincinnati Illustrator blog earlier this week. I love seeing everyone's individual style.
It is funny because I feel like I tried some new things in these sketches that pushed me out of my comfort zone (i.e. using marker, not using ink), but in the end they still look pretty much like all my other sketches. I also really tried to loosen up (some might say unsuccessfully). I think it is hard to loosen up without getting messy or sloppy. It is something I am hoping to work on more. In the end I didn't really come away with any particular sketch that I loved, but at least I tried some new techniques and met a lot of really cool people. And I finally got to visit Chicago which I loved!
