Sketchbook dump (finally)

I've literally been trying to make this post happen for two weeks. It was such a hassle in my mind. but its over now... So:

Airport/plane Drawings, I almost got arrested from drawing the security checkpoint area. I got a pretty harsh warning. So draw the security area if you want to get arrested. Not even kidding..
flying with Air Tran is my favorite; free coffee and cookies. YES.






Train/Subway drawings:




posted this sketch a while back when it was just the stuffed tamale in the center of the page, and now it's full. 
This is for a painting Im working on. more on that later....


I hate poker, but I love drawing, I did play for a bit, and kept getting tons and tons of chips (luck) but I wanted to draw, so I gave all my chips to the guy next to me.

Chipotle

This (below) was at the 2nd annual Richmond Rail Jam, hosted by Banditos. Maybe next year I can get in on that. the ramp in the middle was a giant keg, but didnt have enough momentum to do anything after the rail. but it was the most snow RVA has seen all year!
Ive been glazing a coat of matte medium over some of my pencil drawings cause after a while they smudge into oblivion against the facing page. Any other recommendations besides matte medium? (or spray fix)

your life drawings are so amusing. diggin' the one from when tim was nodding off in business. the airplane pictures are great! i always want to draw on a plane but am usually too claustrophobic.

i just remembered i saw you at an airport once! was it the atlanta one or the ric one?

Will, fantastic sketchbook. You really make it breathe with life, as if it gets up on it's own and does sees all these things on it's own. Great stuff.

I just picked up one of those global sketchbooks last month and it's amazing. Thanks for the recommendation!

Yea, I was just going to say Crystal Clear for the pencil. Don't know if it works in the moleskine though...
