My husband and I have been visiting Denmark. One of its attractions is meeting up with our many old friends. The first Dane we ever met was in grad school 1975 and since that time I have often sketched this particular friend and my husband talking together as they work. I enjoy half listening to the two of them and am glad they don’t mind my scrutiny and products.
Today’s sketch captures a characteristic pattern of the way these two interact. The talker, who is usually speculating about something, looks off into space while the listener looks intently at the speaker. There is little eye contact during this phase of the interaction. I think that this is the body language that happens when ideas are being co-constructed.
This sketch was made using Procreate on my iPad.
