One of the sofas at the bar where my friend Natalia and I go to tango on Monday nights. Or, rather, she tangos. Tonight I, obviously, was quite stationary. Both my feet were hopelessly lefted this evening, and after two dances each with three kind partners, I was benched. Rats.

Fortunately, there was this very bumpy couch on the far side of the dance floor, which kept me busy for a good half hour. So many bumps! I got pretty tired of them after, like, the tenth one. Also, people kept sitting on the couch—my couch—while I was drawing. They did this just to annoy me, I am convinced.

Oh! But wait! While I was drawing, a guy came up and watched over my shoulder for a few minutes. When I looked up he asked, “What are you doing?”

“I’m drawing the sofa.” Like, duh—I was about three-quarters done at that point. He couldn’t recognize the sofa I was staring at?

“Oh. From where I was back there, I thought those were scales.”

So, there you have it: My Illustration Friday drawing for this week’s theme, which is “scale.” So the evening wasn’t a total bust.


Days 6-10 November 12, 2007

Still behind, but less so. Lessons of the weekend’s drawing: curves are hard to draw well, and objects with both curves and straight lines are really hard to draw well.

I start on the left and by the time I get to the right I’m out of whack. So I gave it another try.

1/25/07, Rebecca’s coffee shop, San Diego: Maybe the couch was donated. That would make it a gift, yes?

11/14/06: I got to spend part of yesterday sitting in a hospital exam room. I’m fine, and I had the chance to draw some of the furniture. Alas, they finished with me before I could finish my finely rendered version of a hand-disinfectant dispenser.
