Airport Sketches


Airports can be fun places to sketch. I did the sketch above while waiting for a plane yesterday. There was a cafe open and a variety of interesting displays, including a pretzel rack. I liked the guy with a shaved head and pony tail, he added interest to my sketch. Below is a sketch I did at the Minneapolis airport. I was eating a muffin at Caribou and looked out the window. A plane was being fueled and eventually pulled away from the gate. This contraption didn’t move, so I had time to sketch all its details. I saw a similar fuel station when my plane pulled into the gate yesterday and the other side was facing me. It was full of dials and displays, which I didn’t see when drawing it last week. It’s amazing how even machinery can be fun to sketch!
