headed to Sawyer, Michigan for 5 days of extreme social distancing for myself and Giamila.
Spent too many hours a day watching the treadmill of news coverage on CNN and MSNBC alternating with reading The Lincoln Conspiracy  by Meltzer/Mensch. Tag book documents the failed plot to assassinate President Lincoln before the takes office. To both process the dramatic events since the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and take a pause from the stream of activity I’d head to the beach to draw. I was quite frustrated to be out of position to directly cover the demonstrations in Chicago but I believe the issue of injustice against the black community has renewed vigor and there will much to cover once returning to Chicago, including covering City Council sessions and upcoming court cases once the guidelines on social distancing are relaxed.
I used Pitt Artist Pens and a Graf von Faber-Castell Chevron fountain pen in a #clairefontaine Goldline Watercolour sketchbook. #fabercastellusa
