Scavenger Hunt: hydrant, bike pile, musician (with a little shoe distraction)

Here are some more sketches from the Urban Sketchers Scavenger Hunt. I drew several fire hydrants, thinking I would get a better one, but I think I just got more fire hydrants.

The most challenging item so far, has been the bike pile.

The best thing about the bike pile is it's near Fluevog shoes and they were gracious enough to let a few of us sketch inside. Their shoes, in all the different shapes and colors were really fun to draw, even if they weren't on the Scavenger Hunt list.

This next shoe, was designed by Urban Sketcher Correspondent,  Zaza . You, too, can enter their Open Source shoe design contest and maybe get a prize and a shoe named after you. I'm already imagining 'The Vicky', winning enough to buy a gorgeous pair of sandals that I have my eyes on.

We go out to hear a lot of live music, so I sketch musicians often, but I thought I'd post a slightly different one, and test the rules to this hunt.  I'm trying to learn how to use Brushes on my iphone and this is an early attempt.

The scavenger hunt has been fun because we search for certain items and then notice things that we wouldn't have otherwise. of course, sometimes we're taken down a path of distraction, and that can be good, too.

Love everything! So whimsical.

Hope you'll do some of the river too.

Thank you, Helen. The river will be here soon.
