Work and Progress

Sketchbook: Jury Duty!


Kicked off the 2011 Summer by fulfilling my civic duty at Jury service for $8 per hour. To add insult to injury, found out they don’t pay you for first days service. None the less! I sort of look forward to circumstances like jury service because waiting rooms are the perfect place to draw and think.

Drawing is an engrained habit for me, not to mention I utilize it as a therapy in situations that make me nervous.

Jury Duty, Orientation.

It was my first time ever serving and the bastards assigned me to a high profile case, 11th floor…….But I managed to get my self removed from that jury selection and was sent back to be rescheduled.

I recall going to the Grand Central Market with my father as a child. I had not been back since… seeing it brought back smells and fond memories.. I went back the following day, of Jury Duty, to eat and draw.
