People Watching

It seems that Starbucks is part of a universal language. Over the last few weeks I've worked several trade shows. They're so great for people watching. One quick observation-when someone walks by with a cup of Starbucks a fleeting look of envy passes over the faces of those who see it, whether an exhibitor or attendee.

Hello Out There!

New grandson, Skype, new computer, heavy work load, three trade shows, a lot of coffee and a really bad haircut- that about sums up where I've been lately. I've done a lot of doodles and a lot of graphic design but I've missed drawing daily. I still haven't developed the discipline to draw when things are hectic.

Reportage drawing has caught my interest lately. There are some wonderful examples at Gallery 1482. Our local summer sketch group starts up again in June and is a perfect place to work on these skills. I'm also taking a class in July with local artist Mark McMahon. He does great reportage work too. Hopefully, with all this inspiration, I'll post more faithfully than I have been.

I thank you all for stopping by and being patient waiting for me to post! I really do appreciate it. I have been visiting your blogs and flickr pages- it is the pause that refreshes- but I have a lot of catching up to do.
