This is my buddy Ed, an assistant DA for Hays county, and someone who knows Austin a lot better than I do. He took me to Hill's Cafe on South Congress, where I had a gargantuan CFS (Chicken-Fried Steak for you non-Texans) and fried corn nuggets. All washed down with a jar of iced tea.

From Butler Park, near the Palmer Events Center. There's a little reflecting pool there that I obviously had trouble with.

Austin, Texas.

at the driver's license office

The Texas DPS (Dept. of Public Safety), which is otherwise known as the DMV in most states. The wait here was disappointingly short, so I didn't get a chance to draw the wall-mounted TV with the Home Shopping Network on.

Small moleskine tableau... I did indeed have a burger, whilst Linda had a chicken sandwich.

backroom view finished


backroom view finished, originally uploaded by paul heaston.

This is the back room at my place of work. This is about as clean as it gets, except for the piles of books on the table, which aren't typical. This drawing was done in three or four sessions starting April 27th and ending May 4th, during which the room changed quite a bit. The boxes piled on the left got piled even higher, the table was cleared, and certain items (the clipper ship, mop bucket, chairs) moved around a lot. Also, the fridge in the back was replaced, which is pretty unusual. The drawing shows the original fridge. The new, as far as I can tell, looks identical, but apparently it isn't.
