I haven’t posted any sketches for ages. Doesn’t mean I haven’t done any although my sketchbook does get pulled out less frequently these days. These are very quick, scribbled drawings of kids who don’t hold still. It’s a great exercise in gesture drawing. Here is a post explaining more about what that is.
My main job is to try to keep these squirrelly little kids on task doing something most of them don’t want to do. So I figured out that if I pull out my sketchbook and draw they get really, really interested. They all want me to draw them so I tell them I’ll draw them only while they are working. It worked. Mostly.
