I can sketch her profile in about the same time too!  For instance, at work in  boring meetings, I find myself sketching my favorite obsession.  A mechanical engineer, sitting next to me at these meetings, commented on what I was doing and was amazed when we struck up a conversation about the ship and her conversion from steam to diesel/electric.  In that particular meeting, we were discussing fire tube boilers for a lab building we were designing.  Now this engineer went to University of Michigan, which has an excellent Naval Architecture School, and he was always fascinated with ship design.  Now, after hearing so much about the ship from me in our conversations, he too has become a big fan and has even gone off and done his own research online about QE2.  He lives in NYC and recalls seeing the ship so many times and regrets not ever sailing on her.  I will have to scan a few pages of my notebooks soon with my QE2 doodles to post.

A doodle from school. I was bored during a group discussion and started drawing. Took the photo with my phone since that was the only thing on me.



Am trying to find a paint program for windows mobile so I can draw on my phone.
