Turkey time


Photo by Lisa Sheffield

The things we do to get a sketch! I recently spend some time drawing turkeys for my Seattle Times column. It was pretty scary. I kept having to fight them off with my Niji waterbrushes so they'd stop pecking at my sketchbook. One of them almost grabbed my brush off my hands!

On Facebook, I invited readers to send captions for this photo:

‎"Hey, back off! He's working on a masterpiece -- ME!" (by Melissa Gong)
"And why are you not sketching???" (by Nina Khashchina)

Leave your caption as a comment and I'll add you to the list! For more photos from my turkey sketching time you can also visit this flickr set.

And to those celebrating next Thursday's holiday, Happy Thanksgiving!
