Sketch Crawl Day Jan. 2011

Some Sketches from the Urban Sketchers Sketch Crawl Jan. 2011

The main branch of Bank BCA in Downtown Malang

A resort that has ceased construction for now. Not sure why. The surrounding area is developing fast. Maybe one day they will finish it.

One of MANY trash carts that are pulled to pick up trash around the neighborhoods. There are no trash trucks here. It looks grueling. Pulling up and down hills all day long.

Just a little old man that was sitting across the street.

Just a gardener on the side of the road cutting grass.

Orthodontist visit

This is Dr. Chandra with Bre at her orthodontist visit. I had to sketch extremely fast. She was done in less than 5 mins. It was a routine tightening.

Villa Puncak Tidar

The view from where I take my kids to play on a playground. The mountain in the background is called "Sleeping Princes". What you see is the "foot" of the Princes. If you had a wide view of it, you would be able to see her whole body as she is lying down. It really is a spectacular site.

Roemah Wangi Spa

My wife and two daughters had a day at the Spa. They had a Cream Bath for their hair. It took about 2 hours. They loved it. So I sat and sketched…. cream baths are not for me.

The front entrance to the Spa "Roemah Wangi"

Some Koi. It was very tranquil around this place. Next Time I will go and get a massage!

This is where they do Reflexology (foot massage). I bought a new Chinese Calligraphy Brush Pen and decided to give it a try. I have never used one before so I was nervous. I like the feel of it and the really black black it produces.

Random Sketches around city

The bird market (Pasar Burung). Literally thousands of birds can be bought from here. You can also buy many other animals like Flying foxes (VERY large bat), monkeys, rabbits, hamsters, etc. Usually so many people are here you can't even walk. I could not sketch all of them, so I put just a couple in there.

This Mr. Awi. He drives a becak (bay chok). It's a three wheel bike with a cover. You pay a becak driver for a ride. There are many here in our city.

This is a normal site here in Malang. Homeless people sleep anywhere they can.
