From Chicago with love



Hello all! Kate invited me to participate in USk Midwest, and I accepted with delight. Thanks, Kate!

A little intro, perhaps. I am an urban sketcher and a painter. I live in Chicago, and you will likely see more Chicago sketches from me. I have a blog - Pencil Scribbles - with more pictures and stuff if anyone is curious.

The sketch above is an old one, from a few years back, houses on Wayne street in my neighborhood. This little sketch got a new life recently, when Urban Sketchers Chicago was started last month. Barbara Weeks created a USk Chicago flyer and USk Chicago banner using this sketch. I am so much in love with her design I use every opportunity to show it:
