Long Time No See !!!

Oooopps! Almost 8 months have passed since the last post! Fatherhood hasn't allowed me much free time for wandering around sketching. So, catching up with where I left off the last time, here's some sketches from the Poble Nou area of Barcelona. These are from last Summer, so it's funny looking at them now and remembering how hot it was while sketching (to make it worse I did them during lunch, possibly the hottest time of the day). They are from the little sketch book I once mentioned (8 months ago!!), so the quality of the scans are not great. The yellow grainy paper is impossible to scan.(any suggestions would be very welcome!
These are the last batch of sketches I got to do in Poble Nou. After that I've only had time for some local sketches of people. They'll be posted real soon!!

Today my daughter is 9 months old and her first tooth appeared this morning!

Ya han pasado casi 8 meses desde que colgué el último post! Ser padre no me deja mucho tiempo libre para ir dibujando por ahí. Continuando por donde lo dejé aquí tenéis unos dibujos hechos en el barrio del Poble Nou de Barcelona. Son del verano pasado y es extraño verlos ahora recordando el calor que hacía (son de la hora de comer). Están hechos en el pequeño libro de bocetos que mencioné hace tiempo (sólo unos 8 meses!!!) y aún no he encontrado la manera de escanear este papel amarillo y granulado. (se aceptan sugerencias).
No he podido hacer más en este barrio de Barcelona. Después sólo tuve tiempo para dibujar gente más cerca de casa. Los colgaré dentro de poco!!!
¡¡Hoy mi hija cumple 9 meses y esta mañana apareció su primer diente!!

Great work!
And yes, "fathercrawling" can be exhausting but it's even more rewarding than sketchcrawling.

Thanks Jiveatfive! Yeah, as you say, "fathercrawling" is fun. Hope to see you in Horta for the next Sketching session.
