Love the lady with red hair. Wild, bold. Love it.

Thanks, Dorota. She really looked bold and radiant, sitting there at gate102. Especially in contrast to the woman in the upper left.

I continued sketching after boarding the plane, but the hyperactive kid next to me screwed the mood while I was drawing the male passenger sketch.

ilove these. Rare to see you sketch like this with color.
Btw, RIP gum or mints. :( :( So sad...

Aloha, Nic. I used color 'sharpies', bought in NY to make a few custom t-shirts for my granddaughters. It was fun to use the limited color palette.

I agree about G or M. Scary to think that we have a blog murderer in our midst. i'd love to find out who hit the delete button.

Looking at the woman, my first thought was of Charlie Brown‘s ‘girl with the curly red hair.’ Really stunning! I always find the hardest part of sketching is being the unnoticed observer.

I agree, Peej. The last time I tried sketching on a NYC train I caused a paranoid subject to cover his face with a newspaper and rush out at the next station.

For the two women sketches I was sitting on the sidelines of the gate and they were all in profile so I could sketch without worry.
