Early Morning Coffee

Depending on the time of day I go to Zoka, its patrons’ activities vary greatly. In the late morning and afternoon, it’s full of people busily working on their laptops or checking messages on their phones. I went earlier than usual this morning, and I caught a meeting in progress – a rare opportunity to sketch people interacting with each other instead of their electronics. Although the group was more difficult to sketch because they moved around more than gadget users, I enjoyed the challenge of trying to capture their dynamics.

Today I spotted an even rarer sight: a man simply relaxing and drinking his morning coffee! (Who does that in a coffee shop?!)
When I was about to leave, the regular Go tournament that I've sketched previously was just getting started, so I couldn’t resist a quick profile of one of the players. I looked at my watch and made a mental note to get there around 9 o’clock next time with the hope that I’ll be able to sketch more of a match.

(By the way, this guy really did wear his glasses with the earpiece and temple way above his ear. Drawing the temple of glasses is usually the way I figure out where to put the ear, so this one surprised me.)
