Sketching at the Laundromat - 03-23-13

We sketched at a mega-laundromat in Brooklyn this past Saturday.  

There was a constant flow of people coming in and out, and lots to draw.  In the afternoon we got hungry and found a great place - the Outpost Cafe.  The Outpost was what I imagine the first Starbucks might have been like before they went big-time.  Again, loads of people talking in groups or working on their laptops; - more material for sketching.

Lauren joined us for the first time

Although it was pretty cold outside the cafe's backyard had a constant flow of smokers.  
The backpack sitting next to the empty chair and table reminded me of the NYC Subway ad campaign:

If you See something - Say something

On the Subway


  1. The inclusion of the machines add to your story telling. Nice sketches!

  2. Great sketches, Mark! I especially like the ones that include the adds so much atmosphere.
