Off to Work: Another Day, Another Day

Realized this morning that this might make a good Valentine sketch -- trudging off to work, realizing all of a sudden, in an eye-opening way, that it's Valentine's day.

Sketched this while I was depositing checks online the other night. It's a tedious slow-going process of scanning in the checks, both sides, then uploading them 'just right' to the bank website. Benefit is that money is there instantly and I avoid mailing the checks to Texas and wondering if anyone will have their way with them before they get there.

Iron Hill Bar Scene

Amazing how one Pig Iron Porter will make you think you're doing great work. Then you get home and see how out of scale everything and everyone is. I think I'll go have another.

Iron Hill Sheep

Drew this sheep on the back of a coaster while enjoying a Pig Iron Porter with the Mrs. at the West Chester Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant Saturday evening before dinner.

Iron Hill has helped start the non-smoking dining/drinking revolution in the PA suburbs without the need for legislative squabbling. Their business seems as good, if not better, than the smoking days. Was a tight squeeze at the bar at 7PM.

I colored the tree with some of the fine Pig Iron Porter.

Beetle Bug

Was reading Eleanor Estes' The Moffat Museum tonight to the daughter. A scene where the Moffat children are in search of a meteor for their museum described the over-turned beetles where the meteor once sat.

So I had a few minutes sitting with the Mrs. to scratch this out with the Bic. (As I was sketching a ladybug dropped from above onto my shoulder, perhaps for a looksee?)
