A trip to athens

The boe sent us to a Georgia Reading first class in Athens GA for four days.....i did my own sketch crawl...and drew ALOT of people...the class was in the Classic Center...I drew these during our lunch break...by the last day we were all so stuffed eating THREE big meals a day plus desert we had almost quit ...they put us up in a really nice hotel...The foundry park inn...expense account dinners...we were living the high life!:> EXCEPT for the getting up at the crack of dawn and sitting in classes ALLLLLL DAY long!

Athens is the home of the University of Georgia(GO DAWGS!) Their mascot is the Bulldog, fondly called Uga. He goes to all the games to be sure that Georgia wins...this is one of the forty bulldogs that are all over the city. This one was in the Classic Center and is covered with the names of plays and musicals... When we got out for breaks or lunch...these steps would fill up with cellphone users and smokers...I was having fun entertaining myself adding alot of odd colors that were not normally in the landscape...this is a long series of steps going down to a plaza area...had a great view!

What a fun trip and fun sketches. I love the bright colors. And I don't think I've ever realized what nice handwriting you have. It's a work of art in itself!
