Cats on a Box

One morning my two cats decided that the tipped-over HVAC filter box was The Place To Be. I drew this differently from usual, starting with the full outline of both cats and box, then filling in the details. It ended up kind of geometric, with lots of angles, and yet also a pretty accurate depiction of my kitties.

Frederick Douglass House

Ever on the lookout for new and interesting places to sketch on location, my friends and I ended up at the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site. The tour of the house was fantastic, then afterward we sat on a stump and drew the house. Buildings are hard to draw but I’m actually pretty pleased with this one. And of course I’m always a sucker for National Park stamps.

Dobbin House Tavern

I found myself in Gettysburg one day (as you do), and I stopped by the Dobbin House Tavern for lunch. The food was good but the hot buttered rum was exquisite.

Dolci Gelati

I arrived early to meet some friends, so I stopped for a cappuccino at Dolci Gelati in Old Town Alexandria. Very tasty and the barista was super nice. And one day I might get the hang of drawing coffee mugs.

A Tuna Christmas

For our anniversary, my husband and I drove up to Hagerstown, Maryland, to see A Tuna Christmas at The Washington Country Playhouse. I drew the stage while waiting for the show to start, then afterward I got both the actors to sign my book. Great play – very funny.

MOD Pizza

MOD Pizza is pretty tasty, and no one bugged me while I drew their drink machines. Better yet, that “gratitude with attitude” thing at the upper right is a temporary tattoo. That’s right: you can apply those to paper the same way you apply them to skin, only they’re far more permanent.

Elephant Float

This is one of the many floats at American Celebration on Parade at Shenandoah Caverns. It’s enormous and the baby elephant doesn’t actually look that much like Gonzo.

Desk Detritus

I have a lot of crap on my desk at work. One afternoon, while waiting for a program to run, I sketched a few of my knick-knacks: a plush “happy beer” I picked up at an anime convention years ago, a giant squid from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Disney Vinylmation Park Starz series), and a 3-D printed warrior my cubicle neighbor gave me when she went on maternity leave.
