I love doing these so much. They are pure fun. I always feel like a little bit of a cheat because I'm totally looking off a photo from one of my kid's animal magazines, but what the heck :) I refuse to start with a sketch, so the proportions are always a little wonky. Like I said, it's just for fun.

I think I'm getting a tad better at straight lines and angles! Though I still have a far, far, far way to go :P
A hand-car train thing from Science City.
Got to Toby's school too early, so drew a house across the street while I waited in the car. I know a lot of sketchers draw from their cars - I haven't done it a lot, but I enjoyed it more than I expected. I get to simultaneously be in a space that I feel comfortable in, while also being out observing the world. Best of all worlds :)
Tattoo parlor across from Fric N Frac. I draw at Fric a lot. It's because my husband and children abandon me to play pinball while I hold down the table, order and wait for food to arrive. But since it gives me a chance to draw, I'm happy with the arrangement. And drawing doesn't suck down quarters :)

I've started working again recently. I'm a substitute teacher. Unfortunately, as much as I'd love to sit around drawing the kids all day, most of the time I have to actually interact with them and, you know, teach ;) But this day I was instructed to show them movies for their music class. This group was quietly absorbed in the Wizard of Oz, so I took the opportunity to grab some sketches.
