meeting Boris

Barfüsserplatz: Basel, CH, originally uploaded by Rob Carey2.

April 22, 2011. The internet still amazes me. Through posting drawings online I was able to meet Boris Zatko, Swiss cartoonist and children's author, who also loves sketching outdoors like myself. We spent the afternoon together in the Barfüsserplatz of Basel, sketching this same scene and planning our next sketch crawl. We briefly discussed sketching over at the botanical garden, where the giant "corpse flower" was blooming for the first time since its germination in 1993. [see story and photos]
