Travelers Checking

I recently did some traveling, and when I do, I always take my sketchbook with me. I pulled it out last week while waiting for my plane in Philadelphia and started to draw those around me in the waiting area. I chose to focus on some heads that were interesting to me at the time. What do you suppose all these people were doing that would cause them all to be posing in a similar fashion?


Airports always provide an interesting array of subjects to draw. Jury duty is a close second.


If you guessed “hair sniffing,” you would be wrong. They are all checking out¬†their mobile phones, of course! If they happened to look up at all, they were probably perplexed as to why I had a book in my lap. Some of us still prefer to remain unplugged.
