It's true, last Saturday's sketchcrawl wasn't for the faint-hearted. It was cold, and rained a bit, and there was a feeling of smugness along with coldness when we headed back to the Tyburn pub. Winter Wonderland: I'm not sure about the "wonderland" bit, but it certainly was winter.

Near the entrance was a big wheel complete with Santa in his sleigh, and it had to be drawn. Taking shelter under one of the many wooden food chalets, I grabbed an Inktense pencil and started sketching. The slightly unusual effect is due to spots of rain on the page.

Ten of us faced the cold day and enjoyed sketching this strange place full of visual inputs and people everywhere. There were rides and lights and noise and a great roaring fire that was a life saver when our feet froze whilst standing up. A quick post and photo of the atmosphere today.

I was fortunate to be given a free VIP box ticket for Madness' last night of their world tour. So while waiting for the support act to begin, I drew the very ordinary view of all the trappings of a world stage before the stars and the pretty lights come on.
