Day 2: One Week 100 People 2021

Day 1 was so much fun, I decided to do a repeat. Except todays errand is a grocery run, which is a little more intense than a leisurely stroll around the garden store picking a few plants.

I knew I didn’t want to be in the store too long, so I actually started by picking up a coffee at the Starbucks next door and sitting in my car in the parking lot and doing some sketching before going in. Again, I’m keeping it simple, working in that same accordion fold book.

I did all my sketches in just ink and added “remembered color” as soon as I came home. I use color loosely when I use it like this. Getting too detailed would look jarring with the super loose sketches. The color helps clarify some of the actions and bits of the people that get lost in the jumble of lines in gesture sketches.

Here are some photos for context of how I’m doing this and how the sketches look before they are colored.

And here are all the sketches.

Finally stepped in. You can’t go anywhere without seeing atleast one iconic “Santa Cruz” sweatshirt.

That should have been all the sketches for the day, except, just as my groceries were on the little conveyor belt ready to be scanned, the computer system went down. My sketchbook was back in my bag, but my grocery list is always on paper, so I did this relatively 6 or 7 minute sketch from my fantastic vantage point while they fired the system up again.

Here’s my little counter for the day, with my people sketched on day 2 added in. Not a bad haul so far.

Have you sketched any people yet? If not, jump on and give it a shot. Try for a hundred. Or fifty. Or ten.

    I’ve committed to doing 100 selfies from a mirror…regret it already! 😉 But I’ll stick with it, and if I get even one that I like enough to use as my FB profile pic, it will have been worthwhile!
