What am I Doing?

Art by Mattrix

Dear Diary,

I was eating lunch at my favorite place late last week and something weird happened.  After eating lunch, I plugged into my iPod and started drawing in a sketch book.

I'm working on a logo for a Jeep club that my friends and I started.  It's been a while since I've drawn anything so I've begun drawing Jeeps as practice.  While looking down and drawing (still with the iPod playing) I noticed two legs standing close to my table.  I look up and this guy was trying to get my attention.

After pausing the music, he asked if I was a freelance artist.  I think I laughed and said no I'm a financial analyst.  He said, "That's okay, can I have a card because I'd like to hire you for some work."  I think I laughed again and said I only do this for fun, I'm not trained as an artist.  Again he said, "That's okay."

So I gave him my card and he walked out.  That has to be one of the weirdest things that has happened to me at lunch before.  It was flattering to think he liked my drawing, but I'm nervous he's going to call me.

Weird, isn't it Diary?  I took a picture with my camera phone to show you what I was drawing.
