The urban sketchers meet-up group met in a dumpster today. It's not that we're trying to capture the real essence of urban-living, or that the day-jobs aren't paying enough - it's quite a nice place to be, actually. This dumpster anyway. It has been transformed into a mobile park, a park-a-park that moves from neighbourhood to neighbourhood (http://www.parkapark.com). It was designed by Julien Thomas, an artist working at promoting social interactions. It's a remarkably cozy environment, even parked where it was in an expanse of new concrete and condo towers, a bit like a lifeboat (minus the seasickness) (and Bengal tiger). It's rumoured to be going to Granville Island next, where it will make a great spot to sit and draw the scene.
