1) When you guys sketch in public, and there's nowhere to sit on, or if you're required to stand so as to achieve a particular eye-level etc., do you guys hold the sketchbook in one hand, and sketch?
Currently, I tuck the sketchbook into my stomach area with my left hand and draw with my right hand, but after a while, the left hand starts to ache and it's very uncomfortable. Also, it's kinda shaky during the drawing process (let's not talk about easels for now).
Any tips? Or will it get better once I get used to it? So far, 99% of the time, I've been sitting down comfortable at a chair and table and draw stuff in front of me, but today, when I sketch new objects while standing up, it's really hard.
2) Is there a difference between illustration and fine arts, or are they both the same? I checked the threads here and read Wikipedia, but both seems to be about drawing?! I assume the job of an illustrator is to do nothing but draw and draw and draw and paint all day long.
