dark-haired girls in black dining at ole madrid

While trying to decide what to draw yesterday, I thought about the objects on my desk, but I was too busy working to concentrate. So at lunchtime instead of eating at my desk like I usually do, I took myself out.

Funny the things you see when you really look. I mean, really, I work in downtown San Diego. It’s beautiful. It’s filthy. It’s poignant. It’s growing like gangbusters. It’s full of love and angst and commerce and heartbreak and a lot of tourists.

That’s when I hit upon my plan. I’m going to use my drawings this month to document life in downtown San Diego. Here’s my first attempt.

    Oh this should be extra fun for me! I just went to San Diego (and California for that matter) for the first time in my life last month. We were at a convention and stayed at the Hyatt and had no wheels so we walked a lot. I loved it. You can see some of our pix at my Flickr site, if you are interested. Great going!

    Cool. Don’t you just love my town? I thought your photos were awesome and really captured the vibe.

    ‘funny the things you see when you really look’ – I think this is already what I like best about drawing. Slowing down to look-see-think differently.
