Sketching Sushi

Tentacles, wasabi…Karen Winters shows us how her sushi sketch came to be.


Here’s one of my late in the day drawings from my Saturday sketchcrawl.
I’ll be posting the other ones later but I have been tussling with
ImageReady CS to learn how to do a rollover and then how to embed it in
a blog post. So I think I’ve got it working now.

I’m not going to take the time to do this with all of the sketches …
it’s too much extra effort. But the figuring out part was fun. What can I say … I’m a born geekette. Wait, make that a born
sushi-loving geekette. By the way, I did not eat any octopus tentacles
that evening. I had California roll, spicy tuna handroll and a
specialty of the house roll whose name I can’t recall. The tentacle was just casually lying in the refrigerator case and was
the closest thing to draw. Ditto the slab of tuna. Want to see me purr?
Show me some hamachi (yellowtail) sashimi. Mmmmmm.
