19th Worldwide SketchCrawl in Bologna

Some days ago I went to Bologna for the 19th SketchCrawl (Bologna's 2nd SketchCrawl and mine too). It was a very hot day and we tried not to go beyond the shadows (maybe we behaved as vampires but sun could actually make us become ashes). Any way it was a great day and I made a lot of sketches: 28 on my Big Partner and 12 on my little moleskine notebook.

These were all made on my big sketchbook (13 x 21 cm) with a Pentel brush pen and a Niji waterbrush loaded with Parker Quink brown ink, I must lighten it with much water since it was too dark on the firs sketches.

  1. All of these are wonderful. How much you captured with your lines in such a short period of time. Would you ever consider uploading a video clip of your sketching technique?

  3. And you master that brush too.
    Your sketches of Sara stand out for me.
    You also seem to have so much ease with perspectives.
    I've got to do a sketch crawl before i die.

  5. Wowzer...you are amazing. I really am in awe that you completed all these sketches in one day. This must have been less of a sketch "crawl" and more of a sketch "sprint."

    Great job Miguel!
