Airport Sketches


I’ve known a lot of accomplished musicians in my lifetime. If there is one thing that sets them apart from everybody else, it is PRACTICE.

The same is true of artists. Many people complain that they don’t have time to practice painting or drawing. I’ve found that the best thing for me is to always carry a drawing book with me wherever I go.

The past three weeks I’ve spent a lot of time away from home between Ontario and Utah. My drawing book goes with me. When I’m on an airplane, I always grab the magazines and draw the pictures from them. I try to sketch the people sitting next to me. It’s hard on the neck, but it makes good practice. I draw the people who are sitting in waiting rooms or people who are giving speeches.

These are two examples of my recent travels.

This is something I will always remember you for. Sketching, sketching, sketching.

You have certainly proved that practice makes perfect! I’m impressed with the way you sketch everywhere you go. Just be careful – that lady next to you on the airplane might hit you with her purse :-)
