sketchbook 01/20/09

Another sketch from a cafe. This one at the Kahawa Cafe on College street. Quite small and therefore, no hiding the fact that I was sketching people at the adjacent tables. The gentleman in front of me on his laptop was quite accommodating and basically sat still for me. On the other hand, the lady on the left hand side of the spread knew I was sketching her kept on moving around, so I couldn't get a good head shot. So, I basically drew in a fictional head when I got home.

Question: When you're out sketching, how do you remain "unseen" so your subjects don't get the jitters from being your subject?
