comin down

Sketches of people from the local pub. I like the energy in the lines, and the variety of strokes. It helps that I was using a 4B pencil. Softer lead is so much better for recording the energy of your strokes, but it also smudges and fades fast if you don't spray it with matte finish. For this reason I tend to use harder leads or ink in my sketchbooks.

Just got back from a wedding. Two-and-a-half days at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. A dozen cold swims in a glacier-fed river. Nine hours of straight dancing. Two soccer games. One good solo hike, three thousand belly-laughs.

Now sliding back into a quieter place where I can create.
