I was walking down Columbus Avenue in need of a sit-down and getting a bit frustrated as all the good rated cafes I passed were packed – with no empty seats.
I initially walked past HITW thinking it wouldn’t suit. Sitting on a plastic chair (with no table) on the sidewalk just didn’t seem relaxing enough! But after walking around a little more and checking out the other options nearby I decided to return. I realised it would be fun to sketch – and it was! The coffee was good too.
This sketch turned out to be the one that pivoted me into one of my special afternoon sketching sessions… and maybe the coffee helped a little as well.
