Happy Menocal Sketching at Opening of the new Apple Store Union Square, 2016, iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, Procreate

This iPad sketch is an example of an artist drawing an artist drawing. My subject is New York-based artist Happy Menocal who I drew as she drew at the opening of the beautiful new Apple Union Square, San Francisco, on May 21st, 2016.

Photo above shows me drawing Happy as she draws. Her drawing is projected on the beautiful 6K screen they have in the store.

Here are some more photos from that day to give you an idea of the atmosphere and how amazing the new store is!

This photo shows the monumentally huge two-storey high glass doors slowly closing at the end of the day. A sight worth seeing!

As I walked away from the Apple Store that evening I looked back up Powell Street, saw a cable car pass me and took some reference photos with my iPad. Click here to see “Cable Car on Powell”, the painting I created based on those photos.
