Almost Missed My Stop





Riding downtown on the No. 1, I had to scramble to get off to my day job, other hat, because I was, yes, seduced, by my sketchbook and this looooong standing project of mine-Post-it People, I call it.

There is all at once a challenge and a beauty to record, and then to remember, the fantastic diversity of this city.

What a great way to use post-its! Very memorizing all the characters, their expressions and their stories. I posted on your first blog... but late (today).
Im glad you're blogging, and as I said in my first post- I will eagerly watch and be seduced by your wonderful sketchbooks. : )

Never thought I would find myself here, but now I'm in the thick of it.

I will scroll down and take a look-thanks for the support!

Always an inspiration.
Thanks
