I was by Kahului Airport recently and had a little time to get out my sketchbook. I did my best to fill the page with different vignettes. I used plain office pens and a couple of markers. Definitely an exciting spot to sketch (and I did exchange greetings with security), but admittedly when those planes take off I lose focus and just bask in the roar of the jet engines. Town is definitely starting to feel busier though… like tourists are starting to come back.
Please excuse my prolonged absence – I recently moved to Maui for work! Last night was my first sketch in a little while. It was great, except that I miss seeing and sketching with everyone! In any case, I shall keep sharing my sketches – just from a little farther away than usual.
In keeping with tradition, I sketched fireworks in my neighborhood on New Year’s Eve. I actually found myself in a spot where I felt like I was surrounded by fireworks. In the dark (and without a flashlight in order to preserve my night vision), I doodled with two basic Pilot gel pens and a Sharpie marker, adding the fireworks and glow with color pencils in as real time as possible – along with a little on-page narrative.
A happy new year to you all!
