Went to a launch, which was really a reading, of books by some friends of mine. I like to sketch during these things, but this time I found that drawing the people sitting around listening was more interesting than drawing the readers.
Once, long ago, I had decided to draw every author whose reading I had attended. That resulted in many drawings of people looking down, talking into microphones. Became a little the same after a while. Also, I haven’t been to many readings for a while, being somewhat out of that sphere as of late.
But it was pleasant catching up with some of the people I hadn’t seen for a while, and hear what they were doing.
This was at the Blue Metropolis Literary Festival, in Montreal.
