The ordinary


I love drawing the ordinary things in life, the stuff that you usually consider so everyday and banal that you don´t really notice them. In Singapore, I saw these high apartment buildings everywhere, with their ever repeating patterns of balconies. Also, these little Nissan and Toyota trucks were everywhere. So, during one of the early morning sketch sessions that I did with a few other instructors I couldn´t resist this view. And while we were sitting there, drawing, a waitor from the nearby Crossings Café brought us tea out in the street. An absolutely lovely gesture, putting a gold rim to an already good morning.
