Airport Sketching

The saving grace of a long layover is the time it affords for candid sketching. People really zone out in the airports and hold still for a long time. This is also true of city buses, but airports have the added bonus of not bouncing on pot holes. I furtively watched this gentleman eat lunch on a recent trip through Chicago Midway. I noticed that his ear was really important to his likeness- a crucial outpost of the face out there in the center of the head. I did this in my 4x6" sketchbook, in about the time it takes an old couple to eat a Polish sausage and an Old Style.
