Introduction

hi... I'm bob...I started this group on 6/3/12 because I like to sketch and be out and about with others who like to draw.

Why do you sketch (or want to sketch)

It just became a habit for me. I've always kept sketchbooks and journals. I like drawing to drive new ideas for painting and sculpture...but I also just like doodling because it relaxes me and gives me something to do.

what is your favorite subject matter or type of thing to draw

Lately my favorite thing to draw has been tiny plants and simple animals...like the kind you see when you look under a microscope. I also like to draw, other kinds of beasts, strange human like figures, masks, insects, snakes, and nests.

describe your drawing style ie:doodle,realism,figure,imagined, or post a link where you show drawing/sketching/painting/etc?

I would say that most of my drawings start from a doodle style...almost always the subject matter is imagined, sometimes I'll start to draw from life and then let my imagination take over.

Do you have any favorite artists or works of art (including movies,paintings,sculpture,etc)

egon scheille, antoni gaudi, the brothers quay.

Where is your favorite place to hang out while sketching?

I frequent most of the coffee shops in Rochester...some more than others...I like the city parks as well.
