Visiting family for Thanksgiving I found just a little time for drawing.

10-57 AM

Danny Boy is one of my favorite subjects but he just wasn’t cooperating this time.

10-48 AM

Another drawing of Danny Boy. You can’t tell from my drawing but Danny is a big ‘ol ginger and white cat.


When your in an audience, like high school graduation ceremonies, there’s a lot of people around but you’re mostly seeing the back of their heads. I decided to be respectful of the speakers and not draw during their presentations. That was a mistake because by the time the presentation of diplomas rolled around everyone was fidgety. I tried to draw quite a few people but they just kept lowering there heads, shifting in their seats or turning to talk to someone.

This was a distinguished looking man with short gray hair like a brush and a well pressed dress shirt.

This was my first drawing, before all the fidgeting began in earnest.

I was in Connecticut recently for my niece’s HS graduation. Air travel and sitting through an hours long graduation ceremony afforded me ample opportunity to draw the backs of heads. I’ll start with two from the the trip to Connecticut.


I guess the baseball cap is to protect his head from the air vent above his seat.

This gentleman had a great lavender and white checkered shirt.
