Sketchclub times


This is an old sketch from the days I was regularly out there with the 'Sketchclub guys'.
This young lady was holding a menu in her hand while looking at the specials for the day.
It's great to know that we still get together from time to time to put marker on paper again.

a veces creo que las cosas mas sencillas y mas simples son las mejores, este boceto me demuestra que esto se cumple, es precioso y muy comunicativo

Hola Marcos
Una vez más demuestras que tienes el secreto de la síntesis. Ese que sólo poseéis los grandísimos dibujantes...
Un saludo!

Eli said...

Thanks for stopping by. Your work is simply wonderful. I have issues with finding the most compelling lines and compositions and you make it all look so easy. Feel free to come by again, and thanks.

Great sketch. Really love the pose and the arch in the back. Beautiful drawings on this blog.

Shuku said...

I never ever get tired of seeing the lines in your drawings. This is just almost a silhouette, no excessive detail - but contains so much.

She looks like she might have just come out of a meeting, or was going to one. Cool, collected, like Mary Tyler Moore in a skirt. :)

Or maybe, just maybe, she's the next Miss Trouble.

bones marcos, com sempre, increible linea.
T'escric desde Barcelona que estic visitant la fira del comic y he tengut la gran satisfacció de comprarme la revista nº 66 de creepy a la que surt un comic teu, on ja es veu que el teu talent no ve de fa poc.
Es la primera vegada que me pas i esta molt be, amb clases magistrals de milo manara i moebius entre d'altres i aconseguir un autograf de n'ibañez.
records i salutacions

Al Saló del Còmic vaig veure una il.lustració digital (impresa) teva, i a més de disfrutar veient-la, en van venir algunes reflexions al voltant del gran problema estètic que planteja l'art digital: l'absència de l' original o matriu. Aprofito per saludar-te desde La Garriga, dia assolejat, per cert....

Joern said...

Yes, this is cool. Relaxed mood while sketching?

robi pena said...

Gracias Marcos :-) hasta pronto!!

EL GRANDE said...

Wow Marcos,
I haven't been here in a hot minute. You've added so much. I really love the sequential pages below. I feel exactly to opposite about the marker on paper comment personally. All my work is traditional, and I really feel like I need to get into the computer more. Funny isn't it?:)

Ciao,
Joe y Elio

-Hola Fernando. Pareix que la fira de Barcelona ha estat un exit tambe aquest any.
Ara me recordes lo del 'Creepy'! allo va ser durant els 80 crec... Estic content de que to pasassis be alla, no m'extranya, es una fira molt maca.

-Gracias Paco!

-Muchas gracias Mauro, tendras mas si no hay novedad!

-Thanks Andy!

-Ernest! moltes gracies per la teva visita i comentari. A mi me passa el mateix, lo unic que no m'acaba de convençe de l'art digital es la manca d'un original... pero que li hem de fer...
salutacions!

-Thanks Joern, It is indeed a good moment to relax and enjoy the ride!
