Drawing Table for One

Drawing + food = the marriage of my two favorite obsessions

Blog Love : Turntable Kitchen

Loving this blog! Especially this recipe for Crêpes with Sugar and Lemon… plus there’s a suggested musical pairing at the bottom of the page. Too cute! The inspired couple who run the blog (and reside in beautiful San Francisco) aim to introduce food lovers to music and vice versa. Check it out. Great photography, taste in food, and music.

Antidote is a great little coffee shop in the Houston Heights. The space is super casual and you’ll find families relaxing with their children, folks on their laptops taking advantage of the free wi-fi, and post-work professionals relaxing with a beer or glass of wine. I met a client for a cup of coffee and drew the interior before he arrived. The mom in the image kept on giving me a crazy look because she noticed me drawing them. Haha! Ooops.

The beauty of working for yourself is that you’re not stuck in the same old office ALL THE TIME. Last week we decided to get some work done at Down House (located in Houston Heights on Yale Street). Excellent coffee, farm fresh eggs, a crunchy baguette, and smooth tunes make it a primo location for us “mobile” professionals. Haha! :)

A cool day in September in Houston, TX is about as common as a vegetarian cowboy. Whenever the temps drop, even just a little bit, I want to do everything outside. Hermann Park (which is close to where I live) was calling my name that day - I had to go there. I managed to convince my business partner (a huge fan of air-conditioning) to sit outside for a bit to brainstorm on upcoming projects. While discussing business, I managed to squeeze in a quick drawing. The sound of giggling children, birds flying overhead, the fountain cooling off the air around the pond… not a bad place to office. :)

Today’s “drawing table for one” was standing room only since I ventured into Houston’s Museum of Fine Art for a little gallery sketching. The Art of India collection has this lovely relief of Ganesh and Siddhi which I’ve always admired. Today I decided to draw it with Paper. I love this piece. The two of them enjoying each other company in their cosmic-snuggle. Ah, amore…  :)

Whenever the temperature drops in Houston, the entire city breathes a sigh of relief. The entire city also comes out of hiding (from their air-conditioned homes) to finally enjoy the sunshine (without bursting into flames) and communicate with their fellowman. I too ventured into the great urban-outdoors to soak up some rays and enjoy the city’s sudden change. My perfect day - a great view, cool temps, a big glass of iced-tea (a totally win with vino), music playing in the background, and time to draw. :)

I’ve been super busy lately which means less time for chillin at my favorite cafes/watering-holes and sketching. I did this quick drawing right outside my back door on my little patio. It was nice relaxing in the shade and taking a minute just to breathe and draw. Break-time for the body and the spirit. :)

I am not a glutton. I am an explorer of food.

Another quick sketch at Sweet Paris on Friday morning. Crepes galore! My mom and I shared The Feast, a savory crepe filled with egg and sauteed veggies. And I couldn’t resist the temptation of getting Sugar & Spice, a sweet crepe sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon, coconut flakes, and whipped cream. A decadent but delicious way to start the day.
