I usually drive to the city if I have to teach a class or something, (Jared and I moved into a great big house in the beginning of this year) but today I took the train home - CHOCK FULL of people to draw! I think I am going to do it more often. This woman was great with her stubby nose and big bottom lip.
Students often ask what i look for in someone to draw. When I have people like this in front of me it is not that hard to figure out. She was a caricature already, all I had to do was puit it down on paper. Very few things please me like drawing.
This time it is the B&N in Union Square.
They have a reading area on the fourth floor that is also used for guest speakers and events. Chairs are always set up audience style so I just turn my seat around and go to it. Most people have no clue someone is watching them half the time, which in itself is a scary thought. An even scarier thought is the sad looking woman with the greasy hair and the plaid shirt, she really looked like that.
I have to post something other than ugly people at Barnes and Noble. I have some character designs that I will put up soon.
