Kane's Eye View
Everyone and their mother is now a sketchbook artist. My interweb is flooded with the drawings people do. It's nice and all except everything looks the same. Most days I have to tune it all out. The images are usually of buildings and landscapes. Artists sit and do them onsite or work from photos they found or took. It has become hard to tell one drawing from the next. My approach is to attempt to stand out which takes a lot of energy. This is a sketch I did of New York city. It is a combination of very close up details, mixed with very wide shots of Manhattan. I'm sure in 2 weeks everyone will be doing this, so I'll have to come up with something else for all to copy.
