I attended my first sketchcrawl last Saturday. A small group from the Houston SCBWI and the Urban Sketchers group met at the Discovery Green. Urban Sketchers posted the group photo here on their blog . http://urbansketchers-texas.blogspot.com/
I was a little rusty as I hadn't actually "manually" drawn in a while due to eye problems for the last two months. Warped Corneas !! Long story but I have not been able to see to even walk through the house much less draw. For a month, I was basically confined to the couch in the dark. The light made things harder on me. I couldn't see the t.v. , computer or distinguish from things to be able to walk through the house.
I did discover my new IPad which my husband had bought me the month before. All I had been using it for was games. On the IPad, I could make things bigger to see. And I was able to see if things had "outlines" .. such as games !!! That kept me busy for a few weeks. Then, bored, I started looking at apps in the app store. Found a few art apps and downloaded them. I discovered that I could draw on my IPad. So, that kept me busy for a while.
After two months of not being able to see, I can proudly say that things are better. I can see now !! The doctor still wants to "tweak" a few things, but I think I am back in the game now !!
Check out the photos from the sketchcrawl !!
