when pencil meets paper

David Patrick Columbia writes for the San Fran Sentinel and recently featured a sketch diary of his old friend Bob Schulenberg. Bob apparently carried sketchbooks where ever he went and documented NY and Paris in the 50′s and 60′s. it’s amazing how an artist can capture a moment in time with just a pencil. i wish i could but i can barely draw a straight line. i’m inspired to try! do you do it?


June 23, 2008. Architecture, art, Design, Dreams, Paris.

    Hi Claudia,
    These sketches are great. I agree wholeheartedly with you. Art infuses a certain soul of the person and the seen. It’s different that photography. Alive. This is a great post! Hope you are having a great night.

    Hey Claudia! You sound like you are happy and a little more centered. I’m sorry I haven’t gotten around to leaving any comments. But I’ve been checkin on you to make sure I don’t miss nothin. Take care. I’ll be around.


  4. Ro replied:

    Alas. When I first started college, I was an art major. (sigh) As a kid, I used to draw all the time. Then when I didn’t know how I was going to pay rent by sitting in the park and drawing pictures of people (I didn’t know anything about commericial art/graphic art and apparently neither did my high school counselors), I abandoned my art and took business and technical writing classes.

    However, Claudia, just you asking the question has inspired me to return “home” and let my inner artist out. Merci.
