"Another Day at Subway"

I just discovered a new way to post images to my blog from flickr. What I have been doing for the past, oh, couple hundred, posts is downloading the image to my computer and then uploading it. This takes not only time, but also those precious parking slots on my hard drive.

This image is downloaded from the "medium" selection and is larger than my other posts, but that may not be all bad. Yano whadda mean?

So, anyway, what I was trying to do hear was produce a single-page spread, something like magazines and newspapers do. I think putting the Big Black Border around the images didn't work too well, so it probably won't happen again. Yano whad . . . nevermind.

I layed out the square and rectangles first hoping to find something to put inside. The one on the bottom came out sort of funny. The lady on the left was a normally shaped person, I just ran out of room on the bottom when I was drawing her bod. It appears sorta of serendipitous though because she doesn't look too bad for a "short" person.
watercolor, ink, journal sketchbook


  1. Oddly enough, even with the super short legs, she doesn't look bad! Well done!

    If you don't mind my asking, what sketchbook are you using? It looks as if it takes the watercolor well. Thanks!

  2. I really like the layout. Curious about the sketchbook too. How big?
