Swingin' By

Since I've been back I hung out with my mom a lot, and she's the perfect sketching buddy because she just sits there and enjoys the scenery with me. I guess that's the benefits of drawing with an older person. 

Speaking of which, when my mom and I visited the Chicago Botanical Gardens, we sat in a Chicago Blues concert where the elderly and their families were just chilling.

 It was glorious.

 One of the things that I love to draw are the elderly. They are such intriguing characters filled with history and blandness.  It's great.

So here they are.

This girl was actually from Caribou, but I thought I'd just slip this in here.


  1. ah these are great - I love the overall feel I get from looking at these... they seems like happy times n.n
