Paul and Antoinette's Place

Emeryville, CA My first time in Emeryville. While the gals went shopping, I found this part of town to sketch, and had the chance to meet Paul and Antoinette, who make these cool bicycles and spray paint them gold. You'll see them in the video, cruising around on their bikes. Nice folks. We talked art for a while. Had I been thinking, I should have interviewed them. I'm sure they could tell stories about this place.

I think I like your industrial pieces more than the other landscapes you do (making the ugly beautiful).

What pens and pencils do you use (I dig the pencil you use in your videos)?

RobCarey said...

thank you- Faber-Castell mechanical pencil and Faber-Castell SX pen.

Gee that looked fun...the music was good and funky.
It's great to peer over your shoulder.....I think the real work happens before that, ie selecting the subject and the prep sketch before inking.
Obviously your well practised, how long does this sort of sketch take from go to whoa.
Cheers & ciao from NZ

thanks, Jimu. My wife gave me an hour and a half, so that's how long it took. They were at Ikea and some other shops down the road.

Wonderful subject. Thanks for the video. I shared it with my students.

RobCarey said...

Thank you. So glad you could use it like that.

Great sketch, wonderful video. I like that factory. I've drawn it myself.

RobCarey said...

Really? Do you have a link to it?

When I first saw this, it puzzled me as I've never seen the building. Today i was buying some lumber for a piece of furniture I'm making and come out of the lumberyard and there it was. Technically it's in Oakland but darn near Emeryville.
Great sketch, and that's a great area to sketch in.....lots and lots of character.

Shucks. I thought for sure Emeryville. I wanted to draw that abandoned train station down the road, but couldn't figure out how to get inside the fence.
