Have you ever been caught trying to draw someone unexpectedly?
I've been caught a couple times. Both were occasions were awkward. Especially since I'm not even that good an artist.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
--- Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

I'm not sure if it's lucky or not, but I never have. Then again I only really draw people as they're moving, not stationary, and they're generally focused hard on something else.

i got caught a few times,
one time I was drawing this lady wearing a skirt so by the time I got to her legs and I was pretty much staring at them...she notices me and calls me a weirdo.
I was drawing a goth girl at the mall, I kept looking back at her and down at the sb, and up at her and down at the sb, and in one of those up at her...I found her giving me a one finger salute.
I was drawing this dude at a park, he caught me, came over asked me what I was doing..I showed him, he liked it...and asked me out. I had to give him the drawing as a trade off for my number.

A bunch of us were drawing in Montreal, some old woman saw dirty_c's sketch and called him a satan worshipper or something.

you guys are kinda weird.
use internet photos or facebook, stop creeping the shit out of ppl haha.
I find it hard to imagine a good reaction from a person that doesn't understand art. I myself wouldn't be mad if someone was drawing me, but its easy to understand why some ppl could be easily made uncomofrtable

I was caught by two people today while at the mall. They didn't really say much, but were actually interested that my brother and I were drawing in a public place.
It was interesting, and trying to draw people walking was harder than I remembered. Normally I never get caught and approached, but I have been stared at quite often.

I got caught once by a lady I was sketching in a court house waiting room as we sat waiting for our jury numbers to be called. It was so out of the blue because I didn't think she noticed and she just suddenly asked, "Are you drawing me?" I told her yes and we had a smallish chit chat over art which was pretty cool given the situation.
I haven't had anyone get pissed off at me for drawing them, not yet anyway.

i wish i had received a nice welcome like that.
on the train to my little brother's graduation, i was drawing this elderly lady who was asleep, well, because it was easy since she wasn't moving.
this other elderly woman next to her kept staring at me and i thought it was because she was interested in what i was drawing so i didn't pay any mind to her.
the train stops at what turns out to be the destination for both of these women so they get up to leave. the one staring at me came right up to my faced, pointed to my sketchbook and said in a thick, unrecognizable accent:
"You can't do that. This is private life. That is wrong. You are invading prviacy."
and then they both headed towards the train doors and sleeping lady asked her what had happened and she told her i was drawing her.
sleeping lady didn't look like she cared too much.
but i sat there thinking, "But we're in public..."
