I had a great week in Los Angeles and had the opportunity to sketch with some awesome folks in Culver City. Big thank you to Marcel Spignali for making me feel at home and giving me some great pointers. He was able to talk to his wife on the phone, give me tips on my portfolio, help the sketcher next to me on the necessity of figure drawing, and sketch a character all at the same time.....Most impressive. Head over to his site if you haven't. I also met a very helpful Kendra Melton http://kmillustration.blogspot.com/ who is a blast and another great artist.
Here's some of the sketches I did at various stops along my week.
