Last night, Jim and I went for a little walk around the neighborhood during which I stopped every 3 seconds to take a picture. Must have been kind of annoying for him, but he tolerated it. (Thanks Jim!)
Tonight I did part one of a two day project, which was a pencil sketch of the California el stop in Logan Square. Tomorrow I’ll finish the project by coloring it all in with Sharpie. Can’t wait to finish it!
My doodle today was inspired by the chocolate hazelnut torte I had at the French bakery in the Logan Square this afternoon. It had a pie-like crust that was layered with a roasted hazelnut butter and chocolate ganache. It was amazing. If only the bakery was equally amazing. When I asked for a cup of coffee today they told me, “we’re not allowed to serve coffee.” What does that mean? On a previous trip there, I tried to order a croissant and they told me that you could only order the croissants by the dozen, which is pretty ridiulous since they’re $4.00 each. Who wants to spend $48.00 on a dozen croissants?
Annnnnyways, before I sign off, I wanted to share a link to a very cute song called “Sweet Tooth” by Alexis Harte. I hope you enjoy it!
