A pencil sketch of Eduardo Paolozzi's bronze sculpture of Newton (based on William Blake's original study), which lives outside the British Library. This is from January 2007, around the time I signed up as a member of the library (I'm not sure how I managed this as I think the reader rooms are for academic research, whereas I just wanted to read my own book in there). I managed to get a membership card but I actually think the cafe's a nicer place to sit so I wouldn't bother if I were you.

San Francisco

This is the Marriott Hotel in San Francisco, which I drew in April 2006. It's a rather striking building, and I drew it from a very cool outdoor vegan cafe run by monk-like people. The top floor gives good views of the city; even better after a few cocktails.
