A few weeks ago when I was tripping on the High Line with the NYC Urban Sketchers we had lunch at New York Burger Co. on W23 Street. My veggie burger was big and sloppy but I am such a neat eater I was still able to take the tray liner, fold it up and tuck it in my purse for a rainy day.

Last Wednesday, after I sketched the train waiting women (see previous post) I walked down to Union Square Park. I started sketching on the pre-folded tray liner about a block away and then walked amongst the Farmers Market Stalls. That’s when a vague misty drizzle started. Hey! It wasn’t supposed to rain today. Oh well, I decided I wouldn’t melt, just frizz, so I kept on drawing.

I stopped for lunch at Pret and went over the Tombow markers with a Pitt Brush pen. I think the tray liner is parchment paper so the Tombow didn’t really work very well.

Then I took the subway uptown to MOMA.

Stay tuned. I made another book there.

Process: sketched from direct observation on restaurant tray liner (parchment paper?); Tombow brush, Pitt Brush Pen, Copic Markers, Signo Uni-ball (UM-153.
