From My Sketchbook – Back at it in the Subway

Although the oppressive heat in NYC this past week made going outside almost unbearable, I did have to brave the subway a few times.  Here were some of my companions…

When I wasn’t traveling about town, I was firmly planted at my drafting table working on whimsical cartoon illustrations.  My latest – a gift for my conductor husband – is called At the Ballet:

    Joana when I saw the sketch of the conductor, I said to myself that looks like Andy!… So your husband is a conductor!… You have much in common, both being in the arts…

    My family in New York were all telling me how very hot it has been, I think the temps were higher there than here in Florida!… Stay cool until next time… Regards, Denise

    • Hi Denise,

      It hasn’t been so much the heat (although it HAS been hot!) but the humidity that’s the deal breaker. Today it finally cooled off a bit (mid-80s) and the humidity dropped to quite manageable levels. I’ve been able to be in the apartment without the AC running which is a lovely change from earlier in the week.

      How do you stand the humidity in Florida?

      Hope you’re staying cool, too! 🙂 Joana
