Valentine’s Day is over

Press Pass sketches

The organizers of Press Pass, a monthly gathering of journalists at The Press Club, asked me to be the official sketch artist at the February 3rd event. I hadn’t done that kind of hit-and-run drawing for a while and I think I want to do more. It’s pretty thrilling.

Rather than redraw the pencil sketches into a scene, as I originally planned, I decided to simply add some colour highlights and keep them nice and raw.

Roncesvalles Ice Sculpture

All the pipes on Roncesvalles Avenue are being replaced, in a project that will take over a year to complete. It’s a mess to be sure, but never more so than when the hydrant relief valves are left open over a frigid weekend. Free skating on Roncy!
