[By Ken Avidor in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA]
Every year, the Twin Cities Urban Sketchers gather at the Minnesota State Fair for a sketch-out. This year, I went to the State Fair on two additional days. I like sketching people and there's no better place to sketch people doing lots of different stuff than the State Fair. I also like to sketch animals.
I wanted to work big and quickly, so I mostly used a series 400 11X14 inch Strathmore toned paper pad. I also did a few sketches in my smaller, toned paper journal. I use a Pigma Graphic 1 pen and color with mostly Prismacolor pencils.
Here's some of my sketches:
|One of the entrances to the Fair.|
|I like sketching the Sham-Wow guys|
|A military vehicle attracted lots of people|
|A Woody Guthrie concert. I got autographs|
|The Jefferson Lines booth.|
