So there are a bunch of great sketch clubs out there in blog land. Artists go out to lunch, find some unsuspecting person who is "unique", memorize every thing about them, then they go back to work and try to draw him/her from memory. My only problem is that all of the clubs are in some big city where artists get together for lunch and draw people. I don't do that much. That is why I started my own sketch club. Members: me. Not much of a club really, but I did draw a guy from memory the other day. Does that count? Mr. mullet guy rode past my car several times. He never stopped smiling. He was just happy to be out in his pink shorts, with his big drink and his janitor keychain on his grandma's bicycle. At least that's how I remember it.
The two old guys are just some studies I did. I did the one profile because profiles are one of the things I think I struggle with the most.

While I was working on a job, I did a little wash of blue on a scrap piece of paper. The blue splotch sat there for a while, but before long I had to do a sketch on top of it. Then I added a few detail and this is what I ended up with. Throughout the course of my "real" painting I did the rest of these. Kind of fun I guess.
