No Ban No Wall Rally, 02/04/2017

As usual, I have a ton of art stuff to catch up on posting here. Just for variety, I'll go backwards from the most recent batch. Here are some sketches from the recent "No Ban No Wall" rally in San Francisco's Civic Center plaza...


 Warming up with Laurie and friends before the rally. This is how us sketchers limber up!


Some scene-setting crowd shots. The giant lanterns are an installation by Hong Kong artist Freeman Lau for Chinese New Year.


Getting a bit more up close and personal as the rally winds up. I think these kinds of rallies aren't as lively as marches, because you're basically just standing around listening to people speechify, but it's always interesting to observe the mix of attendees and their homemade signs.
