Take it where you can get it

I want to draw more, but feel like I don’t get much chance to fit it in.

I want to get more done at work, but feel like I spend all this time in long meetings.

Put the two together, and it’s “surreptitiously draw the meeting participants!”

I have a far-too-vast collection of art supplies – using those would call attention to my activities.

So, I’ve settled on a 0.7mm mechanical pencil and blank 3×5 index cards.

Here’s guy #1, from earlier this week:



  1. Heh. Looks like a very exciting meeting. ;-)

    This reminds me of the jury sketches we see on teevee, but I like the drawing.

  2. It does look a little like that!

    And I see I captured the mood of the meeting, as well.

  3. Good going! That’s a good thing to do…draw your way through meetings. Keep thinking about it and see what else your brain tells you to do with the drawings. :-) I know the meetings are way to exciting and command most of your attention, but look for the unusual. Suddenly, you’ll get excited about something you see and you’ll be glad you captured it. Could be a reaction to an idea or comment in a meeting…There’s all sorts of stuff going on there…
    Keep drawing though…it’s good for you!

  4. Good to see you again, Don!
    Thanks for the tip – that might be a good way to go from “drawing from life” to “illustrating” – which looks like a lot of fun.
