Oakland, Berkeley, and San Francisco

I spent a weekend in Oakland and every morning began with a bagel at Boichik Bagels. A short sketch session often accompanied pickup. I’m going back soon, I have so many questions about bagels and how they’re made and what makes some magical and others not so much…

Here’s a sketch from Land’s End after a visit to the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. I’m so glad they left the bridge with its orange-red undercoat of paint and didn’t add the yellow and black paint they planned to add on.

And some bits of visual magic from that day.

A good day in San Francisco often ends at Green Apples Books. After I’d collected a good-sized pile of books, I sat down to a sketch, while the kids kept browsing.

    Yello/black on the bridge, almost sounds like a April fool’s joke
