SUVs in The Waiting Room
I found what I was looking for in my doc's waiting room--a Honda SUV. Perfect for JR's portrait; he's a Honda technician. I would have torn the page out, if there had been other patients around while my doc was passing through, but it was just him and me. So I called out, "How do you feel about people who tear pages out of magazines?" He looked at me with an odd expression and said, "Let me see the cover." I showed it to him, and he said, "Take it." I said, "Great." And that's how I got my drawing for the evening.
When I showed Honey the initial sketch--the very first sketch I'd ever made of a car, he said, "I was thinking of getting the CR-V." Get out of here," I said. "You saw the photo." He laughed and admitted he had looked at the odd magazine I had brought home. I started a new sketch. It would take a few more before I'd be up to the par of JR's drawing.
