Couldn’t help but notice this lady’s huge chain. She also had a virtual swag of glasses – changed them every few minutes, depending on the task at hand.

Leisure Suit in Pen and Ink

This drawing is almost bordering on caricature. The man steadied himself with a cane and so wasn’t terribly mobile. I thought he would present the perfect subject; interesting and not terribly active, so plenty of time to study and capture the detail of the facial features and so on. Almost as soon as I started sketching, my pen leaked all over my hands. Sometimes these things are meant to happen. Rather than stop, I just used the ink on my fingers to smear in the background and to denote a little texture on the suit.
