Even the Dentist Office is Less Awful if You're Drawing
I was busy until 3:00 when I found myself in the dentist's waiting room with my journal for company. I drew the tired potted plant, not very interesting but sort of soothing and better than reading the old copies of Better Homes and Gardens. Then the hygienist had to leave me in the chair for a few minutes, so I slipped out and got my journal from my bag and drew what was in front of me-- a strange array of instruments. They were half-covered with plastic cloth and had rubbery tubes coming off their bottoms. Very clinical and unpleasant but surprisingly fun to draw.
