Relaxing with Alex in Halifax

I visited Alex this past weekend in Halifax. I drove up on Friday and returned Sunday. I knew I wouldn't have much time to sketch but I managed to do these 2 "unfinished" sketches (I don't know why I said unfinished here - it seems like all my sketches are unfinished these days). The top one is of Annies Place, a cafe in downtown Halifax. The other is of Citadel Hill. After I drew it I thought it would be cool to have these army guys overlay the sketch. The execution is not good but the idea is there if I ever want to try it again and do it better.

I like these photos that come from the photo booths you see in malls. Most of them turn out really good - maybe because they catch people at a relaxed and happy time - when they are out with friends/family shopping and having fun. This is Alex and I and Princess.

Love this page of sketches, the building is wonderful and the photos echoed by the photo sketch is very appealing.
I kind of like that it's 'unfinished'
