38th Sketchcrawl Montreal
The meeting place for the Montreal Sketchcrawl was an indoor skating rink in a downtown office building but mostly everyone ended up at some point being drawn (no pun intended!) to the heavy snow falling outside and covering the dome and the back part of Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral. I followed my friend Marc, who remembered having seen a great view of the building from the lobby of the Hilton Hotel and we sketched there most of the day. From that vantage point the city seemed silent under the snow but I bet if you listened carefully you could probably hear the cheering of die-hard Montreal Canadiens fans gearing up for the first hockey game of the season at the Bell Centre only a block away.
