Not terribly exciting travels I'm afraid, I don't travel very often or very far from home. I'd love to, but that time will come. For now, I have a wee 4x2.5in moleskine daily diary that I add to whenever I find a free moment out in the world. It's from 2012, but I barely used it. I love recycling.

I have always been a scribbly sketcher, and sometimes that works to good effect, but mostly it's just laziness and impatience. Working in such a small sketchbook forces me to be more precise. I still have a long way to go, but I'm seeing improvement since I started.

This is the first time I've ever tried capturing humans in the wild. I've only ever sketched models or the occasional family member.

These were all done in various waiting rooms. Mechanical pencil, HB

These are very good subjects upon which to practice.

Nice going!

Using dated pages is good way to guilt yourself into practice.

Sculptcha, you have some nice sketches. Drawing in waiting rooms is a great idea. You have mostly captive models and the time to draw them.

Well done :) Using a small sketchbook to capture people waiting is a good idea. You can be not-obvious :)
