This lady looked like Karen Tumulty of Washinton Week In Review fame. I came home and tried to draw her from memory, (see below), but became frustrated and took a peek at a photo of Tumulty via Google. The result looks weirdly like a Don Martin character, (sorry, Karen), but evokes a little of her sullen vibrancy.
LOCATION & TIME: Starbucks at Rosecrans and Nash, 6:45 AM or so.
BEVERAGE: Venti Iced Vanilla Latte, but just three pumps of vanilla syrup (regular serving has 6).
My first two attempts, presented with proper humility. These emphasize a resilient belief in her fellow man.
