17th & Noe

Here’s a sketch I just scanned that was drawn last year when Julia and I went drawing in San Francisco’s Castro neighbourhood.

A week or two earlier we’d eaten nearby at a great little restaurant called FRANCES and we’d noticed that the neighbourhood had a lot of pretty houses, and came back later to draw the area.

    • You Nut Arthur! Your drawings have ALWAYS been an inspiration to me. It is interesting to me how many artists that I admire are left handed. It seems that there are more lefties in our field than the general public. Left-handedness seems to be about 10-12% in the general public but in animation they seem to be about 30-40% of the community.

  1. Have you ever shown me the Castro area, dear boy? We’ve certainly been with you to the neighbourhood where Buchanan and Pine (great leftie work there, too) is; but the Castro? On one of my stays with you in the early 2000s, I remember taking a long solo ride in the twilight in a former Rome tramcar (a sentimental journey for me). Could where that terminated have been the Castro area? You’ve certainly captured the loveliness of the neighbourhood with your spirited left hand. And Lisa is right; the scene is reminiscent of parts of Hobart. Wendy sends her love to you both, and I send mine. Dad
