Camomile Street. Fineliner.
Got some more done today. This is the closest I've got to drawing the cheese grater. The sheer wall of glass, with its coloured metal inserts, looms up behind this rather old, solid mass of brick, with its mismatched windows, drainpipes, extractor fans and fire escapes. All the real things life is made of. And yes, I do have a soft spot for it.

From Camomile Street, EC2. Fineliner
Today I started drawing three buildings which sooner or later will be obscured by a new address called 100 Bishopsgate. The back view of these blocks are covered in a zillion windows; not glass walls, and the ordinary stuff that life is made of, fire escapes, drainpipes, random cables and the odd chimney pot. These are working buildings, not just a building to work in.

Manager of Costa, Great Marlborough Street, London W1
Today, I though I would turn my attention to the staff as the customers were not very accessible for drawing. Fortunately, the guy making the coffees was, so i settled in for the long haul with a medium latte and a croissant. I don't usually show my 'sitters' but when I did, one of the other baristas said "You've made him look more beautiful than he is ;)" As for someone who likes to think I tell it how it is, I thought "umm ... yeah, i can go with that."
