IKEA cafeteria sketch

Posted on Feb 29th, 2012 in sketches

This little boy wanted to do anything but eat his dinner. I love sketching kids in public because they wear their emotions on their sleeves, and they rarely see me sketching them (and if they do they are curious and usually just smile back playfully as opposed to most self conscious adults). The only tricky part is they sure don’t sit still like the adults.  This was a very quick sketch done half from a mental snapshot I took of the boy as he looked up at his aunt(?) across the table.
