Invisible at Starbucks

Starbucks has never been one of my favorite sketching places. Something about the way the tables and chairs are arranged makes it hard to get a good angle on people while also remaining discreet. With all of their corporate consistency, I find this to be true at almost all Starbuckses. But I was on my way to a haircut appointment in the Roosevelt neighborhood, and the nearby Starbucks was convenient, so I gave it a try.

I do like all the natural light from the high windows in this particular Starbucks. In the late afternoon, it’s often filled with students from Roosevelt High School, and gray-haired people like me are known to be invisible to teenagers, so despite the difficult angles, I managed to sketch a few students undetected.

Gray hair: It’s the new super power!

  1. I like that "grey hair is the new super power." lol I've found the same thing with Starbucks. They aren't set up great for sketching. You did well with these.
