I just don’t understand why this Roberto’s Taco Shop is popular.. All of their food are pure fake.. From fake chips, canned meats, canned veggies, tortilla, beans, fake nacho-like cheese (probably cheez-whizz), salsa, etc… I tried it once and would never buy a dime from them again! It was nasty and just bad as Taco Bell! Yes, it may be cheap.. But, Godly unhealthiest food ever!

Same location as the previous sketch
I saw this odd-looking little insect crawling on my grey watercolour pencil, while laying on the grass.. It look like something that would come from a fiction!
I don’t know what it is, but the bug sure is interesting looking! Black and orange pattern with spikes on it little back.. Oh, that an actual size of the bug. Which will give you an idea how tiny it is..
I saw this statue at the Metro Police Park, just right behind one of their main headquarter in the Northwest area of the suburban Las Vegas. The whole park is dedicated to the fallen law enforcement who have served in Las Vegas since the late 1890s. The statue is pretty interesting, showing a metal sculpture of our typical American Mascot.. The Bald Eagle. The Eagle is holding a shield (or a police badge?) with an interesting wrap-around of the American Flag. Also, there is a three triangular torch pillars with rustic flames (Olympics anyone?).
Done in ballpoint pen, watercolour pencil, and waterbrush
Sketching this at the movie theatre where I work, while waiting for my mother to see “How to train your Dragon.”
Sketching at one of the local casino’s Race and Sportsbook, yep.. The place where you can bet on teams to win money.. I never done it before and I not familiar with the betting structure…
The game that was on tv, which I wasn’t really paying much attention to (I was too busy on sketching) the game. The game was Colorado Avalanche vs. Edmonton Oilers.. And the Oilers won at the end..
This done with ballpoint pen, watercolours pencil, and water brush..
Just breaking into my new Moleskine Watercolour sketchbook.
This is quite a hidden gem in Las Vegas area, I was surprise to see a man-made lake in the middle of the desert. You can see quite a lot of greenery, birds, ducks, and geese in the area.. Once I sat down on the grass, all the ducks and birds were walking up to me…Thinking I have something to eat which I do not have anything.. Poor guys, I should’ve brought something to feed.. I am such an animal lover and I feel really bad for them.. They were even quacking at me for food, which is cute!
The April 2010 Challenge: Wish you were here
Well, I highly wouldn’t encourage you to be here.. But, I don’t have much choice for this kind of theme..
Vegas Style- At least this is an opportunity to do some sketching on people playing the slots.. I’m sure you don’t get this very often unless if you visit the few major gambling hubs like Biloxi/Gulfport, Mississippi; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Reno, Nevada; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Las Vegas, Nevada…
Other than that… It is very lifeless living here when you are a local.. There is no culture, no art inspirations, no museums. Its a big brown desert wasteland with dull-looking mountains and just right in the middle of nowhere, while the better cities (Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, and San Francisco) nearby are 5-8 hours drive. Oh, it just depressing while there are no greens and lovely trees you could try sketching/painting…
Alright, I’ll stop rambling on… lol I’m sure you will get the point..
Obama Rama- Sound like a fun name for an arcade game or penny slot machines?
Hmm.. I think I should stop trying to paint on a regular Moleskine Sketchbook. It not really getting along with my wet gouache/watercolours very well.. Blech..
