Path of a Pint

I’ve been enjoying the Sunday morning USk Talks (Urban Sketchers) over the last year. These are hosted by the effervescent Rob Sketcherman in Hong Kong with new guests each week from locations around the globe. Each talk ends with a challenge to sketchers. Last Sunday’s guests, Nina Johansson (Sweden) and Pedro Loureiro (Portugal) both enjoy storytelling through sketches, stemming from their interest in filmmaking and comic books, respectively. Their challenge to viewers was to tell the story of your favourite beverage. (I’ve included a screenshot of the challenge below).

I decided to give this a try, telling the story of how I get a pint of beer, here at home (I’m married to an award-winning home brewer!). It took me days to think it through, do a rough layout, then do the sketch. It was challenging but also really fun! Here’s what I came up with.

  1. Interesting challenge.

    Great idea, yours.

    The example given by them is like a set design.

    But yours is like a play. I “feel” the pint’s path.

    Warmth, heart, comfort, homestead, calm, enjoyable laidout route to relaxation.

    I love how the feet are in slippers + the largest feature.

    If they had a prize for the best, I would have voted yours.

    It doesn’t get any better than this.

    1. Ah shucks! You are too kind.
      This was such fun to do, and challenging.
      The “slippers” are a recent purchase from Keen. They are fantastic! So comfortable. I wear them all day in the house. Sort of a shoe/slipper crossover.
