|Miffy is always a star!|
I was inspired to do this sketch after seeing Simon Tofield (of Simon's Cat fame) speak at Joseph Beth Booksellers.
Also, I did this car sketch as a study for my next Ultimate Sinister comic. It is a little late for the time period by 30 years, but I love the design.
Finally, I got out in the field to sketch yesterday with my friend Amy. We went to a good indoor location at Findley Market.
Fortunately, I am not cooking a Thanksgiving dinner this year and was free to observe the frantic purchasing of comestibles.

I sketched the Cincinnati Observatory after lunch yesterday… Great buildings… It reminded me of the paintings I had to do of the old Harvard Observatory for the Annie Jump Cannon book I illustrated.
I hope to go inside and sketch sometime.

Sketch done while waiting for friends to go to a show at the CAC Sunday. This is the recently revamped Nicholson’s complex next to the 21C Hotel. I got there early to sketch. It was a bit cold so I had to head inside and finish.
Going to need to start looking for inside locations...

Here are Vine videos of all three locations:
We also went to see the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show opening. I have always wanted to go to one and this was amazing! We also had dinner there.It is fun to imagine all of the famous illustrators that have had drinks in the bar there over the years.
We also went to Park Slope in Brooklyn to try a vegan restaurant owned by my second cousin Aimee called Sun in Bloom. The food was fantastic!
Anyway, now madly playing catch up and atoning for my time off.
