In my quest for a new sketching coffee shop, I tried my luck a couple days ago at Wayward Coffeehouse, which claims to be “an independent coffee haven for geeks.” It doesn’t meet all my criteria for sketching – it’s large and has plenty of geeky posters, action figures and other interesting décor, but it’s also a bit dark, and apparently geeks sleep in, because by 9 a.m., I had no victims to sketch.
But the cup of coffee wasn’t a waste, because the Wayward’s front window has a great view of Roosevelt Way at Northeast 65th Street. It had been nearly a year since I last sketched construction activity at the Roosevelt Light Rail Station. Since then, the bright yellow crane has been replaced by an even taller red one.
