Sketching in Public

Illustration from today's "Ethicist" column in the New York Times.

The ethical question: is it ok for someone to sketch strangers while riding the subway? Long story short: Chuck the Ethicist says it's ok. See: "Sketched Out on the Subway"

The other question: what does Mona Lisa have to do with this? The usual answer: nothing at all, she just makes a nice image when your illustrator lacks imagination.

Looking at your sketch reminded me that I saw many Mona Lisas on a French blog I read (she writes in English.) You need to go and take a look at it – let me find it for you, it was a post she wrote a couple of weeks ago. There it is: It’s a fun post, you’ll like it.

Sure it's OK! Unless you are a future Norman Rockwell, who in the world would recognize the subject?!
