I've wanted to draw my father in law for a while, and this alone took me a couple of hours tonight. I am always much slower when drawing the features of people I know. The idea is to finish it one day -- and show it to him. He might get a good laugh out of it.
I had some time to kill before getting a shot yesterday at the hospital, and the room was so dreary that I could not find inspiration in its rows of chairs and hospital art on the walls. So I found a picture of Rupert Murdoch in an old issue of Newsweek and started doodling him. Too bad I cannot get rid of the gutter of the Moleskine sometimes.
I used a "weaker" pen (brand unknown) than what I am used to, but I don't mind the grey-ish results now that it has been scanned.
This is what I didn't have for lunch today -- partly because I am not a fan of low-fat/fat-free/diet food. I like the richness of cream and real sugar too much. And butter, too. But I was glad Megan offered me this yogurt because it gave me something to draw. Then I gave it back to her.

Chris is one of those students who chooses what teacher he does work for. His art teachers are the lucky ones. I drew him today while he was busy avoiding doing his math assignment. Amazing how much energy some students put into sabotaging their own education.
