While listening to a lecture I drew this porcelain sewing kit poodle. It is one of many porcelain poodles in the collection of Mary, co-founder of "Life's a Poodle" -- an organization that raises awareness of the issues of children with learning differences.
Drawing around other people who are not sketching still makes me uncomfortable. But with other people focused on their own note taking, it was easier. Also easier because the porcelain poodle holds still, unlike people.
