More Video sketches and a bad milk splash

YouTube Sketches

Here are a few more YouTube sketches.  I am watching short
speeches for work, and drawing while I do.  It is
exciting in all ways.  Watching and listening is inspiring.
And when the five minutes are over -- there's something
to look at.

Once the sketch is there in the very rough, I may go back
and add some contrast.  But these are quick, and they make
me happy.

Not much more to say tonight.  In the midst of this process
my cat knocked over an almost empty (thank goodness)
glass of milk onto my computer, and a hand hooked rug.
The rug will be fine, but I held my laptop upside down
trying to get the milk out!  And I am in the middle of
marking.  How do you like that for an excuse (I have
heard everything on my end). " I couldn't mark your
papers because my cat spilled milk on the computer."

So fingers crossed.  I did blow dry it for a minute.  
And it's working now.

Hi Barbara,

Love your video sketches! I've been doing a bit of that, too. Makes meetings more interesting, and I find I can focus more on what is being said when my hands are engaged. Still body = lack of focus, in some situations.

I like your take the cat spilling milk on your computer, potentially an ingenious excuse. Hope your computer continues to work for you!

Hi Verna,

Thank you so much. I so love your work. Knock on wood. Despite dire warnings from my son, (an Apple employee)
my ten year old computer seems to have taken a licking (with milk) and kept on ticking.

I hope I get to see you when all the borders open up.
