Here are sketchbook drawings from a recent trip to Buffalo. I traveled there to take care of my dad while he was having a surgical procedure (which went very well). Snowstorms were so frequent in February, I decided it was safer to make the seven hour trip via train. These are observations of fellow passengers, as well as patients and their families in the hospital. I generally feel that sketches look empty without people inhabiting them, so I tried to capture at least one soul in each of these images.
