Lunch Lines

There is this construction sign that I always see while out for short lunchtime strolls. I figured it would be quick and easy to sketch. As it turned out, it was quick, but not exactly easy. Aligning the graphics of squared or rectangular signs is easy; doing the same on the sign shown below was actually rather challenging. This was my fourth and final attempt, and it goes to show that just because something looks easy to sketch, that may not always be the case!

Metro Sketch

Washington, DC can get very hot and humid during the summers, and sometimes you unfortunately end up on the one Metro car with either minimal or even non-existent air conditioning. When that happens, my fountain pen can get somewhat slippery to hold in the moistened environment. At least I don’t have to wear a tie on those days like the poor soul in this sketch!
