More Drawing in Public

Waiting in DMV

I tried drawing while I was in line getting my driver’s license renewed. This guy was really fidgety so he grabbed my attention. He looks a lot more patient in the drawing. The whole time I was drawing these guys in the back were laughing and talking. I got so paranoid. I knew they couldn’t be laughing at me, but it really bugged me. I kept drawing though. I knew I was being silly. But there is an uncomfortably exposed feeling to drawing in public. I want to have a good drawing on hand to prove that I really can draw. 😀

Kris Cahill at Art and Clairvoyance gave me this award. Isn’t it pretty? This pleases me so much. Getting two awards in one month feels pretty good. Blogging is awesome.


I will pass this along on my next post. I was tagged by Kim at Laketrees for two memes. Thanks for thinking of me Kim! So I will probably put a long post together Sunday or Monday to finish all of my homework.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. hi Mellanie….
    a good sense of form with your drawing…
    you don’t have to do both tags as they are both time consuming….
    absolutely no pressure…either… 🙂
    ps that’s a pretty award and I’m looking forward to posting mine too …


  2. Shirley: thanks so much. I’m so glad you like the drawing.

    Kim: thanks for stopping by. I’m looking forward to doing the tags. But I must admit I am a little curious about Mimi’s dungeon. 🙂


  3. Oh I totally know what you mean Mellanie! I was drawing in line before getting on the plane to come home and I felt myself shielding my work from others’ eyes! I admire that you stuck with it and kept on drawing! This is great … and congrats on the award! 🙂
