The jacarandas are in full bloom right now in San Jose. Everywhere you look, there’s gorgeous purple trees. This is the SoFA district of San Jose, when the streets were empty for the SubZero festival to be setup.
And this is inside SoFA Market on a Saturday night.
One of the oldest restaurants in San Jose just announced it’s closing this month. I’d sketched the sign at Wing’s a few months ago, so I popped back in for a last sketch. I guess everyone turned up that day.
And that same morning, I sketched at another San Jose institution, Rollo’s doughnuts.I can’t say I know what their doughnuts taste like because they were all gone when I got there and store managers Karen & Eina were busy making piles of new pink boxes for the next morning.
My cats have taken to sleeping on my work table. Not good for work. But good for a sketch. This is Moshi.
And finally, the first swim-meet sketch of the season. It’s a bit of a zoo as swimmers line up for their races
