sketches from GLITTER BEAN CAFE

A couple of weeks ago N. and I went to Glitter Bean Cafe for the first time and each bought a tea. Glitter Bean is a cooperatively run, queer-centred coffee shop that opened in July and it served as the location for another two pages from my libraries and coffee shops sketch book.

The interior of the coffee shop is open and bright so I felt very exposed when sketching some of the customers. When it came to sketching N. (above) I could take my time and linger when studying her, but I couldn't do that at Glitter Bean when sketching individuals I didn't know so I worked fast and produced the quick simple sketches below.
