Ikea

Since the weekly theme  is "Worldwide Retail (IKEA and Starbucks)" I thought I would sketch at Ikea, which is just down the hill from home.  I've been amused by this car in their commercials.



It seems fitting to also mention this, given the worldwide theme.  I received a comment on my personal blog from someone who had just found Urban Sketchers... "I got to know urban sketcher recently, and I just jumped in like you! I made my own sketching kit this noon and I’m waiting for the sprayed paint to dry now. Then, saw your blog!... I ordered Cathy Johnson’s book last week, and read the book ’artist illustration‘, and also ”urban sketching”. ...happy to know you"

From what I could figure out, he is in Taiwan!  Just goes to show what a small world this is and how we connect with each other via this group.  I'm glad I'm here.
