Seattle cafe culture
When I lived in Seattle I spent a lot of time sitting in cafes being that dude with the sketchbook drawing pretty girls. I worked as an art model and when I wasn't being the subject of someone else's art I was studying people around town.
Beautiful girls are by far the most enjoyable subject to draw. Dogs are second followed by old people with all the lines and years of character development. I did most of my drawing at coffee shops, bars and on the bus.
On all of these I used a Pilot Precise V5 fine pen. No pencil or eraser was used ever. I still use this pen frequently when not using my quill.
These are a few selections from the sketches of girls and a couple dogs at various sidewalk cafes in Seattle.
