Sketching at the Union.

Went to the Girls Drawin' Girls event at the Animation Union a few weeks back and spent most of my time in the back drawing. These are ten minute sketches on 18 x 24 newsprint. Big drawings.

I try to mix the amounts of stylization and observation -- never wanting to end up with a result that's so purely cartoonish that there's no point in using a live model.
