Stealth Sketching, Part 1

I'm trying to be more artistically responsible these days, which means 1) carrying around a sketchbook ALL THE TIME, and 2) drawing everything. I'm really not so good at keeping a sketchbook...I try, but usually when I break it out this happens:

I miss all the good stuff.

After going to the grocery store to pursue my new goal, I realized: it's not easy to sketch on the sly. There are certain things you have to remember...

1) Camouflage

2) Maintain your distance

3) Try to get a good angle

Part 2-- What happens if you're noticed?

Hilarious stuff, the "hiding in fridge" part is the best!

Hahaha--great drawings! I'm bad about hiding my intentions when field sketching. Haven't tried the "hiding in the fridge" strategy might be on to something there..
