A warm day in the Mission District, San Francisco

An unusually warm day for San Francisco – 75 degrees and not windy. My idea of a perfect day to sketch in the city.

This is the view of the street corner (Mission and 25th) from the window at Mission Pies. Pie and coffee foe breakfast. And a couple of quick sketches.


Looking down Mission, with a churro seller in the foreground. It’s nice to be in a neighborhood with lots of street life, where people come up to you and chat while you sketch.


I love drawing the criss-cross of lines that break up the sky in San Francisco. They’re a big jumble until you look at them closely. And then they (sometimes) begin to makes sense…


Another quick sketch, this one over lunch at La Taqueria.

You can see a set of my San Francisco sketches here on flickr.
