Never a Dull Moment
Just after five o'clock last night, the power went out. At the time, I was working at the library, but news soon started trickling in--big fire at the electrical substation a few blocks away, power out in the whole downtown area, no chance of having it restored anytime soon. So we closed the library, and you can guess what I did after that! My first few sketches were ridiculous. Check out the one below, for example. Yikes! The subject was just too big and complex for me. So I decided to focus on just a small piece of the scene, and ended up with the sketch above. I like that one better. But the fire truck left before I was finished!
