Catching up on work

Catching up on work - 1 (1)

What if everyone liked their work so much that if they needed to rest a bit from the rigors of vacationing that they could do this by retreating to their work? This possibility reverses the typical relationship between work and holiday and I want to capture it in a sketch. I think I got the ‘tired and interested in the computer look’ by showing the figure slumping back into the chair with a focused and mildly pleased look on his face as he gazes into his screen. However, this sketch needs more context so the viewer knows that the man is on vacation and is resting up by working.  I got into difficulties here since I was also working to use white space to lend interest to the sketch.

I drew in ink and added watercolor later.
