It was a good week for sketching.  I had enough subway trips to provide me with ample people-watching time, and yet not so much work that I felt too harried or preoccupied to sketch.  Interestingly, my sketches ranged from full body to portrait, and more serious to cartoon-like.

  1. Lol the first gal use to be me! For some reason after one stop I fell right out!
    That was many years ago and now at this time of my life I could never fall to sleep so fast! Great sketches Joana. 😊

      Thanks, Denise! After two days of moving furniture and boxes (my husband is giving up his Milwaukee apartment now that his kids are grown), I am ready to fall asleep while standing. I think we’ve gotten too old for do-it-yourself moves. Sigh…and Zzzzz. 🙂 Joana
