London Sketchbook

I spent last week in London with Ann Field, Clive Piercy, and a group of students from Art Center. The days were filled with museums and studio visits to Neville Brody, Michael Apted, Rob Ryan, Fernando Gutierriez, and Sir Paul Smith. The brilliant A. Richard Allen, and the wonderful Linzie Hunter came out one night to show their work and tell some stories. It was also good to spend some time with ex-pat Owen Freeman.
There should be a word for that impulse to make drawings of everyday things you see on a trip. It doesn’t happen much when you’re home. Unless I'm on an assignment, I tend to drive right by stuff that would make a good subject for a drawing in LA, or else, I take a quick photo and never look at it again. But when you’re on the road, everything seems interesting

London Sketchbook
The last two years I was invited to join a group of students from Art Center on a trip to London led by Illustration Chair Ann Field (who’s English.) We make the rounds of museums, galleries, and artist’s studios. The kids make some late-night rounds of their own. These are some drawings from my sketchbooks from the trips.
That's Jeff Smith and his Leica.
