Next to last stop of the Saturday sketchcrawl

December 20th, 2005

MOUSE OVER TO SEE THE UNPAINTED MOLESKINE DRAWING
Here’s one of my late in the day drawings from my Saturday sketchcrawl. I’ll be posting the other ones later but I have been tussling with ImageReady CS to learn how to do a rollover and then how to embed it in a blog post. So I think I’ve got it working now.
I’m not going to take the time to do this with all of the sketches … it’s too much extra effort. But the figuring out part was fun.
What can I say … I’m a born geekette. Wait, make that a born sushi-loving geekette. By the way, I did not eat any octopus tentacles that evening. I had California roll, spicy tuna handroll and a specialty of the house roll whose name I can’t recall.
The tentacle was just casually lying in the refrigerator case and was the closest thing to draw. Ditto the slab of tuna. Want to see me purr? Show me some hamachi (yellowtail) sashimi. Mmmmmm.

Now I’ll see about getting some of the other sketchcrawl pictures up.

Here’s one page: More sketchcrawling
And another: Sketchcrawling cont.

  1. Mmmmmm…love sushi, love your sketches! (Glad I get to see sketches more often than I get to eat sushi!)

  4. Sushi is super, this rollover thingy is pretty super as well.

  5. Very clever using that roll over button! I love the simplicity of the lines
    and the use of color to make it come alive. I’m glad you drew the octopus
    tentacles as a sushi, it’s a great touch to your 2 page layout.

  6. Love it, I’ve been wanting to learn that rollover trick for ages. The tentacles are great, you can really imagine the texture of the food.
