Back at Stanford

Spot the sketcher in this photograph? He’s a little harder to spot than most because he has no telltale sketchbook and overflowing kit of pencils and pens. That’s Rob Sketcherman.

I met Rob and his wife Louisa one afternoon for a quick sketch session by Memorial Church on Stanford Campus. I have to say, we sketched less and talked more. Chatting and sketching means I ended up with a fiddly, overworked sketch. But that’s okay. It’s great when sketchers visit: you get to actually talk with friends whose work you know so well, but don’t get to talk much to during a Symposium.

Here’s another sketch, made while waiting for Rob.

If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area on a visit and head down to the South Bay, stop by Stanford to sketch for sure. Besides these iconic buildings and the Rodin sculptures at the Cantor Museum, there’s also this gem of garden, the New Guinea Gardens that’s worth visiting.

Thanks Rob and Louisa, it was lovely catching up. If you want to see more of Rob’s fantastic iPad sketching from this trip, it’s here.
