OK, so I took all week last week off from work. It was awesome. Just stayed at home and spent time with the fam. Despite the awful weather I did actually get to do a little sketching. I had to do most of it from inside my car, which I hate, it somehow seems separated still. Oh well.....the results are here.....

Stage Center - Downtown OKC

Oklahoma Cotton Oil Producers CoOp - OKC

Silo - Midwest City

Emerson Elementary School - Downtown OKC

Crown Heights Christian Church - North Western Avenue - OKC

Will Rogers Theater - North Western Avenue - OKC

Southwestern Bell Building - downtown OKC
This sketch is a little different. I was actually commissioned to do this sketch by my friend and colleague Blair Humphreys. His brother (Grant) and dad (Kirk) own and run their business out of the building in the lower left side of the sketch. He asked me to do a sketch of their building with their sign etc. and show some cool OKC downtown skyline in the background. So with a little artistic license on the positioning and angle of buildings this was the result. Happily Blair reported that Grant loved the sketch.
