Here's a quick sketch in response to the Weekly Challenge on the Urban Sketchers Flickr group: "Busy, Busy People." I had to give the final exam in one of my courses this morning, so I sketched while the students completed the exam. Now I just need to grade them all! (BTW, This sketch was done with an old Yafa fountain pen and Noodler's Walnut ink ... I've been trying a variety of pens/inks, and will hopefully do a blog post on that subject soon.)
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.
