It's beginning to look a lot like.....

Christmas at the mall.   Outside, it's beginning to seem like we might need to build an ark soon.  I braved the deluge to go to Southcenter Mall to sketch.  It just so happens that this week's Urban Sketchers flickr them is "shopping centers". 

I'd not gone out to sketch in a week.  I really felt the need and I'd not yet done any Santa sketching.  I would like to know whether Puget Sound area has any unusual Santas..... such as Portland's hipster Santa or Toronto's Fashion Santa!  But this was a regular Santa. 

I first drew the back side of the Santa village



Then I stood to draw Santa's area.  I spoke with him a little. He asked one of the elves to invite me to show him what I was doing and then he showed me an image of an excellent charcoal sketch someone had done of him.  



I noticed this on my way through and stopped to sketch the  Santa Cow on my way back to the car.  The counter staff told me this one's name is "Woody". 





with a bit of photo collage for the B&J sign.
