Another 'waiting' sketch ... maybe it'll become a series. This time I was waiting to see a doctor - the wife and kids had all come down with a nasty case of strep throat (is it ever not nasty?), and it was my turn. It was late in the day, dark outside, and it was a mercifully empty waiting room. I used a green Copic pen, which matched the color of my face at the time, though my scanner darkened it up a bit. I had gotten everything roughed-out when it was time to be poked and prodded, so I had to finish all that hatching a little later. Feeling better now, a couple days later, but still not quite good enough to really get out there and draw a bunch for today's worldwide SketchCrawl.
I teach architecture at the University of Idaho - design studios, architectural graphics courses, and a professional practice course. One of my passions outside of teaching ... and music, and plants, and mycology, and ... is observing and understanding the world through sketching with various media, such as pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolor. Passing along the same skill and interest to students is a goal I've pursued through my teaching here in Moscow, Idaho, and through an 8-week study-abroad program in Rome each summer.
