Another brush pen urban sketch… doing a lot of these lately. I was at yesterday’s Eco-Maya Festival, sitting at the row of cones and sandwich-board barricades to kinda give a human presence to keeping lots of cars from driving through the closed street festival.
The Eco-Maya Festival is run by my friend and neighbor Julio Santizo. This year (and on a couple occasions before) it took place in the streets at L.A. Eco-Village, an intentional community where I live. LAEV is in L.A.’s Koreatown neighborhood.
I started drawing the top of the palm tree and just kept going. I think that the palm tree looks really good. Palms are one of those things that’s perfect to draw with a brush pen. From there, the rest is ok… some false starts here and there… the curb is a little funky, some angles below the roof, and along the tents (should be level), too… but overall a sketch I like.
