This is not exactly an "up-to-date" update, since it was supposed to be a February post - but these poor little scanned sketches have been sitting on my desktop for over a month now and they are just dying for an audience. Please check out these excerpts from the sketchbook I submitted to the Sketchbook Tour 2013 this year. Yes, it's more people on the train...but never the same people! Drawing grumpy New Yorkers on a daily basis is some of the best training an artist could ask for. If you disagree, at least this time you will also see a random section of live model sketches. I found a great free class and I can't explain enough how joyous it is to draw from a model who doesn't move and/or doesn't think you're a creepy stalker. And who isn't grumpy. Just naked.
