LAS VEGAS! continued again

After a quick nap upstairs back at the MGM after Club Tao, I headed downstairs for some good ol' McD's...

...I then proceeded to the casino for some gambling...and some sketching...


....two security guards approached me while I sat in a vacant slot machine seat sketching the lone lady up there and asked what I was doing. I told them "drawing"and they asked to look at my sketchbook...



They spoke into their walkie talkies labelling it a "Code 4" and took my driver's license to log my name into their system. They mentioned to their superiors that I seemed to draw only females but everything looked innocent. They said I looked suspicious and that I'm no longer allowed to sketch in their casino anymore.

Should I be surprised that they have a code for "Suspicious Cartooning"?

Lovely stuff as always, but you're clearly a magnet for trouble!

lol, Mark...well I was pretty surprised they had a code for this. I bet he was just making it up! I'm just glad they didn't take my sketchbook.

I got the same treatment sketching at the Hard Rock a couple years ago. 2 guards checked out what I was doing but they didn't stop me-I guess I don't look as suspicious as you!

Yeah...sometimes I guess I look like a punk and it sucks. I was sketching at a few festivals over the past weekend and I really felt it. I would start sketching in the middle of a crowd and when I looked up, I would be by myself. I swear it looked like I had a force field around me.
