August 3, 2010. I lost track of time with this one. I started after dinner and kept drawing until 2 am. Time to call it a day. My daughter's still awake, planning her 16th birthday party with her friend. Big stuff. She's going for an 80's theme- you know, back in the old days. She was playing old 80's tunes downstairs and I found myself singing along. Pathetic. (Later): Some explanation for this drawing- I am not in LA right now, like this would suggest. Someone tipped me off to something called "google street view," so I looked it up and instantly loved it. I found myself cruising down the streets of Southern CA, finding my old houses and haunts. And then I got my sketchbook out and started drawing a typical scene from downtown. Way too fun. I wish they had this for Germany.
