Massachusetts Sketcher for a few days

montserrat2.jpgI’ve taken a little bit of the Northwest to the Northeast. Some of my Sketcher pieces are part of the exhibit “On Location: Drawing Every Day,” at Montserrat Galleries in Beverly, Mass., where I travelled recently for a 3-day artist residency at Montserrat College of Art. I met students of the illustration program, attended the exhibit’s artist reception and led a sketchcrawl with more than 40 students and staff in Beverly’s picturesque downtown.
The idea of a show of location drawings came from Fred Lynch, a faculty member at the school and fellow urban sketcher. The exhibit includes work by Lynch and other top-notch reportage illustrators I’m proud to be associated with: Peter Arkle, Elissa Della-Piana, Margaret Hurst, Kyle David Lindholm and Veronica Lawlor.
If you are near Boston, I recommend a visit. The exhibit is open through Jan. 22. [See more photos here.]
Since I brought some of Seattle to the East Coast, I thought I’d bring some of the East Coast back too. Here a few spreads from my pocket travel sketchbook:
