Park-Dad Sketch

A quick sketch drawn 3 days ago at the park. I've been kind of busy this week, but this was an impulsive sketch I snuck into the schedule. I've been taking my daughter to the park fairly regularly. We can go if she does her homework, and the weather permits. That's the deal. I've met other parents, and made some friends. It's great to compare notes on parenting, and shoot the breeze for a while. My friend agreed to be sketched, but he's not the type of person that likes to be photographed. That's understandable, and I thank him for making an exception. I think I caught his expression watching out for his son. That's a dad for you. Park-going parents stick together, and take turns watching. This is how I usually get a chance to sketch in these situations. That's all for now. Thanks for dropping by, and remember to have a great art time!

In the spirit of perseverance, I drew up this royal automaton for the Tuesday Sketch. I say perseverance because lately I've been really busy adapting to work again. I'm really happy to be working, but my art time is in flux. I missed last week's sketch, and this one is a day late, but that's much better than no sketch.
Impulsively speaking, I can attest that the sketching impulse was there, but evident in tiny manifestations, even while knowing the topic on Monday night. The topic: Royalty. And I thank Noel Curry for advancing me the information via Twitter.
This robot comes from the same manufacturing line as some of my other original robots, which you may have seen on previous posts. I chose to bring back the model, thinking of future projects, and practice for the same. I will write a story pretty soon, with these guys in mind, so a little practice, and variations will do me good.
That is all for now. Thanks for visiting. Have a great art time!
