I am a little apprehensive that I will be seen drawing pictures of people.   When you consider it, it is a bit intrusive, so in order to capture an un-staged, un-self-conscious image, I have to be a little sneaky.   Being sneaky though means that it is harder to sketch frontal images.    For example, below it is obvious that I was sitting behind the young lady with the pony-tail.  That image was fairly easy to pull off.   However, the gentlemen sitting on the stool was a little harder.  I kept sneaking little glances, rapidly sketch a line or two, then flip the page or check my watch, or turn my attention in the opposite way — anything to keep him from noticing that I was scrutinizing him.  So, as a result, this sketch is, well, sketchy.
