I flew back to L.A. from New Jersey yesterday. Above is a sketch I did on board the airplane while waiting in snowy Minneapolis, when I had a connecting flight to catch. The flight had a three hour delay. No fun ( I was a bit nervous about the snow, de-icing and all – though it worked out ok in the end) but I did get a good drawing out of it. I was glad to have an aisle seat so I could draw people sitting on board. I’ve done a bunch of similar drawings before – for example this earlier on-flight drawing. The above drawing is in brush pen, which makes for a lot of ink in a hurry.
Below are some hand studies I did en route from Newark to Minneapolis… where I had a middle seat. I’ve done zillions of hand studies before… though haven’t posted many here.
Both of the above drawings are in my Sketchbook No. 64, started October 28th 2012 and nearly done. I’ve been posting lots of my sketchbook drawings – click here for way more sketchbook work than you probably want to see.
