The deadline for the most recent Sketchbook Project was last Tuesday 13th January. I made it, just in time. I really liked doing this one too- wish I had more time to draw. And sew. And knit. Andandand. Practice makes perfect after all!
This time I did a very long drawing of a section of North Main Street in Wexford; (Last time I wrote a wee story). I’ve planned on drawing both Abbey Street and Capel Street in Dublin for a while; I’ve a crazy-assed plan for the drawings (if they ever materialise), and came up with the idea that this could be done as my sketchbook. I decided to take some photos and spend the few days I’d off over Christmas drawing. But, the day I went to take the photos of Capel Street was miserable- proper Irish yuck. So miserable that I decided that Wexford Main Street would do. Consequently, on Christmas Day I told Sam that he had no choice but to accompany me down town with Sunny for her walk. While I took photos on my phone, Sam made small-talk with a crazy dude who didn’t bat an eyelid at what I was doing but told Sam all about his finding a wallet with €500 “just there” and how he didn’t bring it to the Gardai “thieving civil servants, the lot”. Thanks Sam!
I stuck a Sam and Sunny in for good measure- the only bit of colour in the otherwise basic line drawings.
I scanned the entire thing in high res; someday I’ll sit down and piece it together. Someday. Ya know, that day in the future.
