Kalakala Afternoon!

As Drew sat on his reindeer skin sanding newly carved wooden spoons, and people streamed in to check out the new spot in town and congratulate Drew and Amanda on their new adventure, the Sketchers occupied the big swinging table and other nooks and crannies around the place. I like to think we were documenting the opening of a new era in Langley. To me there was a feeling of old and new, ancient and hip. There is a timelessness about Kalakala while at the same time a sense of up to the minute brand new cool. Thanks Amanda and Drew for bringing yourselves and your vision to our little village. Happy New Year!!

  1. Great sketches. I love the way you've sketched the background in both of these - just enough to give a sense of place without overdoing it and detracting from the subjects. I also love the way the girl with the long black hair is framed by the arch.
