The last pages of 2011

In a very serendipitous (I never thought I'd ever get to use that word!) way, I finished my first Urban Sketches book on the last day of 2011. I must confess I could not use half the pages in the book as the waterbrushed ink soaked through to the other side. But I have a brand new sketchbook ready and waiting to be used for the new year, and it is definitely of a thicker stock.

However, I am in two minds of whether to keep on with the Marrickville/Inner West theme, as I also have other ideas – sketching from bus stops OR drawing all the discarded junk people leave out on the streets. I've seen some crazy stuff left on the kerbs. Any suggestions/opinions are welcomed...

Have a great 2012 people!!


  1. I must say I do love seeing the Marrickville ones.

  2. Hi,Meegan,
    Thank you for sharing your honest look back and new goals. Great ideas to focus on junk-food and a specific area. I like them all. Me, too, will sketch chosen places. Let us enjoy sketching and cheer up each other!!
    Best wishes,Sadami

  3. I am happy with anything you choose to sketch! You will beautiful sketches out of junk!
    Happy New Year! Sorry I didn't get a chance to come your direction during my holidays...
