Haven't done any sketching in a while ... the new semester's got me busy. But I gave the sketching-my-colleagues-in-a-faculty-meeting thing another go. Not sure whether this is an improvement over my previous effort, or if I just took a step back. Part of me thinks I should just stick to buildings and such ... my comfort-zone. But the bigger part of me knows not to listen to that kind of nonsense, and keep plugging away.
I teach architecture at the University of Idaho - design studios, architectural graphics courses, and a professional practice course. One of my passions outside of teaching ... and music, and plants, and mycology, and ... is observing and understanding the world through sketching with various media, such as pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolor. Passing along the same skill and interest to students is a goal I've pursued through my teaching here in Moscow, Idaho, and through an 8-week study-abroad program in Rome each summer.
