coffee shops

In really cold weather, the only place left to sketch is in coffee shops.

and the steamy heat fogs the windows and the only thing left to draw is the place itself.

These are from various sketchbooks over twenty years or so.  Boston had a great many spots that were a nice respite from the damp and cold, Chicago a good number, but Boulder’s 40+ coffee shops must top the latte/capita list.

Do I have anything to say about the architecture or design of these places?  Not really, I go there to take a break from it and do some mindless sketching.

  1. Thank you for sharing these. These drawings seem to capture special places. We live in Indy which has a very limited cafe culture. Starbucks and Panera are almost as good as it gets. But it is improving slowly with small, independent, community supported shops going in occasionally. Our problem is knowing they are there when they do open. Enjoy!
