Urban Sketching - Bookshop

Drew this cute bookshop with the Melbourne Urban Sketchers last weekend. I intended on drawing the Rivoli - an iconic art deco movie theatre - but directly opposite was this irresistible subject.

I sketched the same scene with Alissa Duke and Angela Williams and it was really cool to see our different interpretations of the same building.

The shop is closing down after 25 years in business. What are we going to do when all the bookshops like this disappear?
