chillin'

In between getting advice on my I-pod and computers at the Apple Store by the North & Clybourne stop and heading to a catering gig, I sat down in the Plaza by the Apple Store/N&C Red Line stop to cop a sketch of this smartly attired dude coolin’ his cowboy boot clad heels. Pitt Pens, Namiki Falcon, and grease pencil in a toned Strathmore sketchbook.

Good news at last. Upgraded the camera I use to take pics of my drawings which will mean higher res. For the last year and a half, perhaps more, since my scanner went ka-blooey, I’ve been photographing the drawings with a an i-Pod that while convenient was low res and so the drawings came out a touch fuzzy. Better definition will mean sharper, prettier images with more information so you can better evaluate the tools at work and the paper in use. It’s been too long in coming and I do apologize. I’ll replace the above image of Franz Spohn drawing soon as the new camera is all set up.
