"Man Waiting for News at Hospital", Humans and Their Activities, Lynn Cohen



Another of my eight pages I drew at the hospital day before yesterday waiting for my husband to have surgery. This guy was waiting too. The people made such good models for me. Only moving a little bit now and then. I draw fast. You can see other drawings showing through these pages. I won't buy this book again. But I like the slick pages to draw on.
Just used a Copic pen, black, 03.

I've posted all eight of the drawings I did that day on my blog Getting My Feet Wet. You can come visit there and see them if you are so inclined.

  1. These all are amazing. I like everyone you have done Lynn. So nice when you can just go ahead in public and do that

    One day I hope to do that in public . Time will tell. They say I read for starters that is the way to do it. I did that with my boat. I call it

    chicken scratch. It is a relaxer. I was not in public like you. So thumbs up. For all you have done. Wow!

  2. Yes, one must just jump in and draw (in public). I started outdoors and then since it was winter moved indoors, coffee shops, restaurants, Mexican restaurant near my office specifically. I wrote a book about it. See on the side bar of my other blog: One Fish Taco and Half An Order of Guacamole A Year of Drawing Over Lunch at Tacos Jalisco. Blog link is: http://lynn-nonameblog.blogspot.com. It's on the side bar. You can click on the photo of the book cover and see inside the books first 11 pages I think. Enjoy.

    1. Thanks Joan, these were all done quite quickly and yes it kept me busy and my mind off any worries I may have had. It's such a waste of energy to worry before you know there is anything to worry about.

    1. He did have a large nose and a huge head of curly hair too. The art journal is a small one I got at Michael's for $3.99 by Fabriano. It has very slick pages which I like, but in bleeds through to the page behind.
