So I did my first reportage sketches last week. there was a May Day protest at the state capitol May 1 so I walked down there on my lunch break and sketched a few scenes. It was my first reportage -- reporting by drawing instead of using a camera. It was pretty fun except I only had a few minutes to sketch before I had to get back to work.

I also had my first unofficial sketchcrawl Sunday, May 7. Unofficial because I'm the only member and I'm not sure if sketchcrawl is a trademark or what. But I had fun walking around downtown Albany, Ore., and sketching, even it it was by myself. Hopefully, since the weather is getting nicer, if there are any other sketchers in town we'll run into each other and actually start meeting up for a group sketchcrawl, which sounds more fun than sketching solo.

I also did the usual Google Street View sketches last week. Street View is about my only means of "travel" these days.

Church in Cauayan City, Isabel, Philippines.

I also did a few misc. sketches. A sketch of the sculpture at the Capital Park with the ODOT building in the background and one of my grandson watching TV (A practice reportage). and a few misc. sketches.

That's not all of them but that's a few of the ones I have photos of on my phone. Thanks and have a great week.
