Look at this really welcoming, friendly guy, wouldn’t you walk into a store if he towered above it?
I guess ‘welcoming’ isn’t the point of the green gorilla. He certainly did make for an eye-catching ‘STORE CLOSING’ sign. I stopped and sketched the drama. Lots of people pulled over and went in while I sketched. Empirical evidence shows that gigantic inflatable green gorillas make for great sale signs.
Suhita….it blows my mind how you manage to get so much sketching done….even if you just “dash it off”, it still means you stopped for some bit of time. You do inspire me, and I want to develop that same habit. We just moved last week, so I have done no art in at least two weeks (YOU would have been sketching the movers !!!!) Setting up my studio in the new place has to wait until we get the garage cleared of boxes. I am so itchy to get back!!!
Think I need to leave the house and see if thee are green gorillas around here. Too funny!! Bytw great sketch.
I would walk proudly in.
