Sketch Walk Practice and Map Making

Last Saturday I went downtown to do a test run (walk) of a sketch walk that Memphis Urban Sketchers is having this Saturday, March 3, to commemorate MLK50 and the 1968 Sanitation Workers' Strike. For more information see the Memphis Urban Sketchers blog.

It was hot and rainy - weird for February 24, but our weather is nothing but weird lately. But I pulled on my rain jacket and hood and kept at it, even though my sketches and notes got quite smudged.


















I made a map and a schedule for the day, showing the difference between our route and the original strikers' route. There's now a basketball arena where part of the route was.

Saturday I'll get more time to actually sketch, and I'm really looking forward to it!
