Spent half a day in the much, and justifiably, heralded Museum of WWII in New Orleans. Managed this sketch of a B17 Flying Fortress from a cat walk about 5 stories above the exhibit floor.

Next to my hotel in Metairie was a construction site where men were driving wood poles into the ground. On Sunday, when they took the day off, I ambled over to draw the site, only to have to seek shelter at the adjacent grocery store when the clouds let loose a soaking downpour. After waiting out the storm by having lunch, I returned to the same spot and finished the drawing of the now gooey site.

 Saturday, 9/9/2017, I join Pete Olson and some of the NIU crew to make our way to the 130th Sandwich Fair in DeKalb County. I don’t often look to wedge into large crowds but after my experience a few years ago at the mamouth Minnesota State Fair, I now have quite the appetite for these events where culture; food, farming and social, are on such ostentatious display. As when I work as a product demonstrator and representative, the people working the animals and booths were very accessable and despite the emense crowds, willing to answer a steam of both thoughtful and poorly considered questions.

The day began scurrying to the Ravenswood Metra station where I promptly sat down to make a quick sketch of the station and tracks looking south. I’ve only ridden these trains for 17 years and know they run in opposite direction as automobile traffic. So, when the train’s arrival was announced, I quickly realized the mistake had left me no time to race to the correct place. Fortunately the Brown Line station was a brief walk away. Eventually I made it to Ogilvy Station with enuff time to have breakfast, and it was there I tried to capture the hurried expeditor Rigo whose shirt inform he had been handling customers huevos since 2006.

 

The goats came first, and as with the other fairly open exhibits which were cross between a large tent and small barn, the smell was surprisingly modest in part due to the mild Fall day. Even the pigs weren’t so pungent, and there was evident and regular defecating at every turn.
