Back From the Brink
Then today I felt much better. I was waiting in line for a coco kale smoothie this morning, and I could not resist sketching quickly the smoothie maker's glorious fuschia dreads under her work kerchief with a slogan button on it. Later at the acupuncture clinic I drew a lazily swimming lemon colored fish. Two Jesse drawings round out the fun drawings for today. He was taking the cool evening air on the windowsill of our bedroom after sunset.
F and I worked hard today doing some R & D, which we really enjoy, as we tried to redesign a small bag that we make so that it fits phones in their bigger cases. My attempt was a complete failure, so I drew my failed bag and annotated it. I was trying to gain some flexibility in the bag by sewing it on the inside and turning it inside out. Not possible with a lining, which we really like. F's bag is good, but perhaps could be a slight bit wider. So, two working drawings, and that's it for today.
