7 x 7 / 02-05-07
I wanted to play with something a bit different, so quickly drew a grid of 49 empty squarish shapes and, in little fits and starts, filled them.
As I sat and sketched, a man took notice and asked what I was doing. We chatted -- he was a project manager for a construction company, and was in town while his company built a luxury mall. Seeing me draw, he said, made him recall a drawing of a Jaguar he drew in high school -- a sketch his mother had saved, and brought him just recently.
He talked at length about his musically talented niece, and I recommended some Austin-ish coffee shops. It was a pleasant interlude, especially since that grackle wouldn't hold still.
