Back when my budget for eating out was still hefty, I had the opportunity to sketch a scene in every restaurant I ate in. Not all restos are the same.

The sketch on the left was done during lunch time at a mall in Mandaluyong City. My spot was at the far end corner of the floor so I had a good view of the whole room.

The second sketch (below) was in the same mall at a Persian-inspired restaurant. I had to remove the guy from the sketch because he moved every second. It was annoying. An attendant approached me to compliment my work.

It's usually hard to sketch during dinner time in malls because thats when most people rush out of their offices to eat meals with other people before heading home.

This sketch (left) was done at closing time at a Japanese fast-food chain. No one was minding me anymore because all they cared about was their food.

At this other Japanese place I dined in (below), I felt like a hardcore voyeur because of the restaurant's interior design. The partitions made each table secluded from the other.
