Lunch Hour and Late Evening Sketches

I work a 9 to 5 and occasionally get freelance illustration work. Finding time to paint at home (personal work) can sometimes take some tweaking of time and I have to watch don't allow myself to get distracted. But at work I am guaranteed two fifteen minute breaks and an hour lunch break and I almost always make the most of that time.

 I either take out my sketchbook or grab some loose paper and sketch either from imagination or reference that I have on my computer. Also I've taken to doodling while I am on the phone or waiting as some work is printing (I operate a digital press).

Mediums vary but I mostly use a pencil or a pen. Sometimes I take the drawings home and finish them up there. A good many wind up in the garbage though.

Once I get home I also like to work in either watercolor or gouache before I turn in.
