Life Like Drawing @ the Drake Hotel

I'll be hosting a drawing session every Tuesday in August at the Drake Hotel in Toronto. It's free and ALL are welcome. Just bring a sketchbook or paper, up to 16X20' id say, and whatever you like to draw with...the classic Tyconeroga pencil, charcoal, conte, nupastel,ink..whatever suits you. I'll be around for moral support and as a resource...but otherwise youre on yer own. hope you can make it out...Its 5-7pm on the SkyYard patio...which means there is a BAR! it really is nice.
I'll post a few drawings i did practising last week...stay tuned.
