Here are the drawings for the past few weeks. I took my drawing gear out to a cafe and to cronulla, but mostly been drawing from home and with no reference.
This was drawn in Cronulla. It’s one of my favourite spots to draw - just sitting on the bench and looking out over the water and building. The focus on this is the buildings though.
A skinny tall character with lots of circles. More than usual (though there are a few clouds in the sky).
Masks are all the rage. I have 50. The character is wearing a mask. Clouds in the sky, spikes on the mountains. Water in the foreground. There are a circles inside the mountains.
Faces on the few suns in the sky.
A character with several square shapes chests.
This was setup of gimp on the pi - no thick to thin stroke.
Drawn outside a cafe in Penshurt. It is mostly of the street signs, and buildings. Ended up diverting from the scene and adding a character and water.
A character with wings.
A character in the middle with lots of squiggles around it.
A portrait of a character on the right.
A character from Animal Crossing on the right.

I have been getting out more often with my Raspberry Pi and smaller display screen. It’s a bit easier to use in public than the 7 inch setup. Here is a mixture of digital drawings I created from both street views and imagination.

I sat outside Westfield in Hurstville and drew the buildings. My goal is to get out more and draw more buildings and street scenes - along with beaches!
I sat at the rooftop in Wesfield Hurstville and drank a drink well I drew the view. It was mostly tables and seats, but there was a few plants which made it more interesting.
A scared looking robot.
A robot with targets as eyes.
A short robot with landscape behind.

This was created at the aws meetup in Sydney. It was the 2nd time I had attended the meetup and likely the last. The meetup doesn’t really interest me and I find the talks to be too dry and sponsored. The people are ok. I might attend the aws summit in April.
Digital drawing of Calista and her dog Willow. I would like to draw both of them more. The reference image didn’t show much - only half her face. Still it was fun to draw her and she liked the result.
Drawing of Carla.
Drawn when attending the golang Sydney meetup. It was a bit of a different meetup to my usual meetups. They had a talk on documentation then some library developers talk about their projects and then we were encouraged to work on their docs.
Attended the laravel meetup. I mostly attended because they were talking ecommerce. I don’t get along to many backend dev meetups so this was enjoyable.
progressive web apps meetup.
Attended Sydney Designers meetup. I even got someone drawing!
Remix and redraw of Karis artwork that she sent me. I love to collaborate with others on art.
