Manhattan Meeting

Had a meeting in Manhattan last night. That's the one in Kansas. That other Manhattan won't be in my sights any time soon. It's a meeting of mostly volunteers running a State-wide youth outdoor organization that I've been involved with a few years. I need some sketching time so I get there early just to sketch before the meeting. I discovered that it makes for a very settling shift in mindset.

  1. Fun sketch, John, thanks for posting! And you made an interesting comment...yes, sketching DOES shift our perceptions and settle us, somewhat...

  2. I was born in Manhattan, Kansas and lived there until I was 8. We moved to a suburb of NYC. The storyline was that we were moving from little Manhattan to big Manhattan. I look forward to seeing more of Kansas through your sketches.
