Urban sketching: It's not a hobby; it's a lifestyle.

6/2/12, fountain pen, Hand Book sketchbook
This is Gerry, one of my new family members (as a result of
the wedding that took place in L.A. last weekend). The house full of people, everyone
engaged in various conversations, I quietly pulled out my sketchbook. He looked
engrossed in his conversation, so I hoped he wouldn’t notice me. I’ve gotten pretty
good at sketching strangers in coffee shops, but this was the first time
I boldly sketched someone I knew, sitting only a few feet away. I was too shy
to show the sketch to him at the time, but he saw it the next day and (kindly)
said he saw a resemblance.
