Red River Kitchen

Under a towering restored grain elevator (City House) sits an acclaimed little food truck called, Red River Kitchen. I sat across from the scene as a free yoga class wrapped up inside the building and city workers began strolling in for lunch. A great new foodie spot for Saint Paul!!

Can you smell the coffee?

I'm a chronically early person and when waiting for a friend in a coffee shop I often create my own space by sketching. It's a great way to keep your hand and eye nimble for sketching and block out the noise of the crowd. The faster the sketch the better - it's not perfection I'm after but just a sense of the place.

Dunn Bros. Coffee

Argh!! What to do when you find yourself without your sketchbook and have to wait for 30 minutes...
that was my predicament today. I ordered a latté and began to sketch on the protective sleeve.
