Penciling the Friendly Skies

This past Monday I concluded my holiday travels. As you well know from previous blog posts, I always carry my sketchbook with me to keep me entertained during all the waiting one has to do in airports. An airport provides a wonderful cross section of society to try to capture with the pencil. And seeing how people present themselves for travel always intrigues me. Some folks dress up, others wear nothing but their jammies, while yet others may wear layers of the strangest ensemble you’ll ever see in an attempt to avoid baggage fees by putting on whatever didn’t fit into the carry-on (cough – me – cough).

So, here are a few folks that I captured in the airport in Baltimore, Maryland…..

Large Man Walking
“….all the king’s airplanes and all the king’s pilots, couldn’t lift H….”
Waiting for a Jet Plane
“…and I’m waaaaaiting for a jet plane, don’t know when I’ll take off again…”
The Janitor
I’m not sure how he pulled it off, but this janitor looked like he was on a break while he was working! Wish I could work that relaxed!
