Minerva's Class


At the spring street studio figure drawing class there are a lot of really old dudes who attend religiously. Many times when I’m drawing I get pulled out of my deep sketching zone by a strange sound. I stop and listen, “what is that?” It always turns out to be one of the old dudes. It’s either their bizarre labored breathing or empty stomach gurgling or some other belching type tune. Every 12 minutes one of them has to pee which is a whole other adventure. You’d think I could just block it out by now but somehow it distracts me every time. I need to get some ear buds.
