September 4

Woman at the bookstore. I chose her as a subject because I could sit nearby with a magazine propped up, and hopefully be inconspicuous in my glancing. After I started drawing, I noticed that she had a large scar on her chin, and it occurred to me that she might be really self-conscious if she knew I was sketching her. It struck me that we can so easily be embarrassed about stuff that nobody else gives a damn about. Good lesson to remember.

havent had time to be on the computer much, or do any proper sketching.
Love what you are doing, cant help wondering why you were behind the thrift store and i love your quick faces.
