Today I had a little wait before meeting my friend; we were going to see Ben Miller in “The Duck House”, which we thoroughly recommend by the way. As said friend was a little late (thank you Transport for London) and it was cold, I sat drawing the lamps, railings and windows from a local coffee shop window. Always practicing those lines. Do they look straighter to you?
I hate waiting. Well, that is not entirely true. I don’t mind waiting if it is time that I’ve anticipated, I don’t like it when it’s unexpected hanging around. Particularly if I have nothing to occupy myself with in the interim. Luckily I now always have my trusty sketchbook to relieve the boredom, such as today when I was waiting to meet some people. Just as well there was a nearby coffee shop to ensconced myself and draw passers-by, fellow caffeine drinkers, belongings and so on, and so forth. Like this rather stylish hat.
I may have previously mentioned before that I come from a long line of people-watchers, that, in the sketching business, does come in quite handy. Whether it be six pages in an airport, four pages in a coffee shop, five pages in the British Museum or four pages on the train, it can only mean one thing…I have three pages left in the current sketchbook. Hooray!
