Chicago Sketchcation: Part 1

I got back from my first Urban Sketching Symposium a week ago and I'm STILL processing it! The last you heard I was all packed and ready to go. I learned a lot, and have my work scanned in and ready to go, so I hope y'all are ready for a little deluge of Chicago posts! Naturally, I started sketching at the airport. My flight experienced a small delay because of fog and rain in NYC, which gave me even more time to sketch and start reading my plane book ("Furiously Happy" by Jenny Lawson was an excellent choice, by the way.). Here's a selection of passengers:

I even did a sketch from the plane! The scenery was too good to pass up (and I think it thoroughly amused my seatmate.). I would sketch a little, look out and pick something different, and sketch a little more, so it was pieced together rather from bits here and there. You could not find this on a map.
