Quick Sketches of Roman & Byzantine Fashion

I was at a local café in Oakville with my friend Ana Campos, and she told me all about a past vacation of hers to Europe with her cousins. And then in a somewhat forced way I segued our conversation into talking about one of my most-loved topics: things people may not know about Romans.

The good thing about not having had internet access and  of sitting across from a person who seemed interested to know, is that I had every motive to draw what I was talking about from memory. ^_^

Art Deco Movie Theatre ¦ Θέατρο με Αρτ Ντέκο Όψη

" Cinemas" is a local attraction here in central Oakville (Kerr Village). The Art Deco rhythm of the building and the welcoming concourse area make it very endearing. Of course, the up-to-date sound system does not hurt either.

On my latest trip, I watched "Inside Out" by Disney and Pixar and it had me giggling, aww-ing, laughing, and *at times* (multiple times) tearing up. After it finished and the credits rolled, I said goodbye to the staff, took up a seat on a ledge outdoors, and set about drawing a very simplified version of the theatre's facade.

If you have not seen this wondrous, witty animated feature; I would suggest you don't wait any longer. And if you live nearby and can appreciate low ticket prices, go watch it at! :)

Living & Observing ¦ Ζώντας Ζωγραφίζοντας

A drawing of the room around me, which I sketched between turns while boardgaming with my siblings.

A professor-looking man that I jotted a sketch of, between two short subway stops.
A sleeping man on the train back to my city.

A set of friends that were sitting at a different table than our group at the local bar.

Brunchening ¦ Και να μην ερχόταν το φαγητό, ακόμα χαρούμενος θά'μενα.

One drawing was sketched at Cora's restaurant before Luba's, Eyassu's, and my plate was served: it was this one. Black pen on paper.

"One last one."

The last sketch from after work tonight at a fast food place (drawing along with a friend).

Gathering by the Screen

Quick sketch of some people watching "sportsball" at a bar. (To borrow a term that I've heard from my witty co-workers at Conspiracy Comics.) Copic marker and ballpoint pen.

Thanks to Janice Elvina for lending me a sketch book and Daniel Tal for the use of a copic marker.
