I haven't been in the nearby mall for many months, so it was time to visit and see what was new there. One new thing was a "conveyor-belt" sushi restaurant, where goodies were constantly circulated in front of the eaters. I was being frugal so I didn't eat there. But I did buy a Starbucks coffee, which allowed me to sit in the sipping area in front of the store and make this drawing. Tysons Corner Mall has a wealth of design vistas which invite me to draw their complexity and perspective. I had not yet drawn the round concierge kiosk so this was my subject today. The shape in front is the arms and back of an upholstered chair in the seating area.
I've done uncounted numbers of these urban sketches over the years. Lately I've been wondering, rather crassly and un-artistically, whether I could make money by marketing either the sketches themselves or my ability to do them. They aren't slick and computerized like most architectural concept drawings nowadays, but maybe someone in the architecture world wants this style.
