Activities People Do Inside and Outdoors, "At Starbucks", Lynn Cohen


I like turning my people in action drawings into cartoons of a sort. At least giving them some conversation even if they are just thinking to themselves, like the guy on the left, who kept chuckling to himself while being on his laptop, as I drew him. Or the weird conversation between the two women on the right.

I found a new art supply (for me): General's Pastel Pencils! Less messy than squares of pastel chalk, and nicely textured and easy to smear or/smooth out the colors with my fingers. I enjoy discovering new things to play with. Someone suggested I use Q-tips to do this. I must remember to pack some with my supplies I take with me.

This was a fun theme for me as it's right up the alley with what I draw all the time.

The next theme will be a challenge for me. I look forward to what everyone brings to the blog  with their night scenes!

    1. Thanks Elisa. I am totally responsible for all conversations in my art pieces! They were sitting much too far away for me to be able to hear them. I will continue to draw this way, and I post them on my blog weekly. Get there via my name in the contributors list/link!
