Lovely, scenic brussels November 26, 2007
I had a 2.5-hour layover in Brussels this morning, on my way to Dublin, so I did some drawings from a seat in the middle of the shopping area.
Some signs were reflected on the shiny floor:
I have decided that Brussels is an excellent
country city, by the way, because everything is in both French and Dutch: two languages I can’t speak at all but love to listen to.

Just after we ate Thanksgiving dinner the power went out which happens more than we’d like around here. We have a battery that runs a few lights and we eventually all wound up in the kitchen reading—for hours. My granddaughter was looking at a big “Calvin and Hobbes” book and falling into wonderful poses. This is the only one she stayed in long enough for me to get a quick sketch. I think children’s gestures are wonderful but they change so quickly.

The flight landed before I could complete the work. :-( * Drawmo! entry
Travelin’ November 19, 2007
I spent part of last week traveling, and discovered that an airline seat is actually a good place for drawing. A few impressions, in no particular order.
What I could see on the flight out.
A traveling companion. I meant to sketch him in different settings during my trip, but failed.
The warning panel over my seat.
A very chatty, very loud, very tall woman spent much of my flight talking to someone in first class. She actually did exist in three dimensions, despite what this drawing might suggest.
A wall near the Starbucks in Concourse C at Minneapolis-St. Paul International.

I wonder if the man I was on the phone with realized I was drawing while talking to him…
Pepe Rosso November 15, 2007
It was cold and clammy and vile today, so I went to Pepe Rosso for pasta. They were having a totalmente! italiano! day today, with molto chaos and molto yelling. Part of the chaos involved moving those two stacked chairs, pretty much the second I finished sketching their outlines. And they kept piling up and removing large objects from the sidewalk in front of the pickup truck.
So that’s why parts of this drawing are especially kooky. I blame the Italians.
